An Evening in Paris is the hottest drink of the summer at Vine Street Café on Shelter Island.

“We find it floral, elegant and easy-drinking. The recipe is super simple to recreate at home. I created this recipe for my wife sitting at home one day, and we were talking about the trip to Paris we planned on taking this winter,” explains Matt McCarthy, the restaurant manager and beverage director at both Vine Street Café and Cove Hollow Tavern in East Hampton.

Pour an eyeful and be transported to the Eiffel!
