Starting this week, I will be featuring a new (alcoholic/non-alcoholic) drink every Tuesday through the first week of October, then starting again in April of next year. The first drink is a favorite at The Living Room c/o The Maidstone in East Hampton called “Hedvig’s Punch”*. This punch is surprisingly not very sweet at all, which I prefer. It is made with fresh squeezed orange juice, grapefruit, cranberry, pineapple & grenadine. The grenadine, like in a Shirley Temple, is not at all overpowering. It is just a tiny splash for color. I love that it is made with freshly squeezed orange juice. It is much better than store bought. I always love to have that in the summer with breakfast. It of course takes time to make and prepare it. At home, we have a juicer and a hand squeeze juicer.
I found it to be very refreshing and it compliments most of their brunch, lunch and dinner entrees well for those who are under 21 or who do not prefer to drink wine or liquor. It is a great “perk-me-up” beverage with hints of tangy, zesty fruit. Definitely give it a try on your next visit. I just love the name!
