Side Dish: Thirst Aid

(on tap)

Detroit Shoreway:
It’s a muggy Friday night. And drinks are needed — cool, refreshing, preferably with a good dose of alcohol. Let your travels take you to Luxe Kitchen and Lounge, Marlin Kaplan’s latest venture, where the bartender will casually lean across the 1930s-era art deco bar and tell you to try the Bloom. Listen to him. One sip of the hand-made lavender and blueberry lemonade mixed with citrus vodka and you’ll think you’ve stumbled upon a lemonade stand for grownups. Dark and intense in color, the flavors follow suit with hints of lemon and lavender underneath the boldness of blueberry. Go ahead and order a second one — it’s summertime. 6605 Detroit Ave., Cleveland, (216) 920-0600
