Drink DuJour : The Bell Boy

Out of NYC’s new Parker & Quinn comes a citrusy summer cocktail with a bold yellow bell pepper zing

“This is a healthy, innovative summer libation,” Alex Ott, mixologist at the new Manhattan hot spot Parker & Quinn, says of The Bell Boy cocktail. “It’s excellent for food pairing as a pre-steak aperitif, or as a complimentary concoction for poultry, fish, skewers or raw bar.”

It’s no accident that the drink works well with so many dishes—Ott’s engineered it just so. “The interaction of botanicals with yellow bell pepper creates a unique fragrant and floral freshness, accompanied with zesty citrus and sweet agave,” he says. “This cocktail balances out perfectly on your palate and makes you scream for more.”
