Cocktail hour with a vitamin fix: Romaine With A View how-to
Substitute sugar syrup for mineral-rich Romaine lettuce juice in this fresh (and practically virtuous) take on the classic punch, Rome With a View
Sunday 10 July 2022 By Soho House
Created by BANKS® Rums’ co-founder, Jim Meehan, Romaine With A View holds the restorative power of a green juice while delivering an alcoholic punch comparable to a Long Island Iced Tea. Mixing the grassy notes of BANKS® 5 Island Rum with Romaine lettuce’s bittersweet edge, the cocktail’s flavour profile is rounded out by a bracing blend of botanicals with the addition of St-Germain Elderflower Liqueur and Noilly Prat Extra Dry Vermouth.
