When the weather gets hot, it's nice to sip on a light cocktail to keep cool at your favorite bar.
There are plenty of places to go in Philly for summery drinks, but Old City's Royal Boucherie goes one step further – the bar now lets you customize your own spritzer.
It's a simple, three-step process to creating your perfect drink. Guests select a base aperitif spirit (step one), then a modifier (step two) and finally a topper (step three).
The list of spirit options including Aperol, Cappelletti, Carpano Antica, Cocchi, Americano, Cocchi Rosa, Galliano, Licor 43, Lillet Blanc, Lillet Rosé, Lo-Fi Gentian, Nonino, Pavan, Pimm’s, Ramazzootti, Salers or St. Germain.
Modifiers are aloe, cherry, grapefruit, honey, lavender, lemon, orgeat, orange, pomegranate and rose.
Guests can then top their drink with club soda ($12), or a sparkling white wine or sparkling rosé (each $14).
Currently, Royal Boucherie is open Wednesday through Sunday from 4-10 p.m. Expanded hours, including weekend brunch service, is expected to begin soon. The restaurant is located at 52 S. 2nd St.
