The Scarlet Ibis Will Be Your Go-To Summer Cocktail

Goodnight Kenny, a cocktail bar in Poughkeepsie, dishes up a cocktail recipe that's all about fruity, bubbly flavor.

The best summer sips are refreshing and fruity, like last summer’s trendy Aperol Spritz. Goodnight Kenny, a cocktail bar in Poughkeepsie, kicks the fave up a notch with the addition of grapefruit soda and mezcal for their Scarlet Ibis. While it’s simple enough to mix at home, we also recommend paying them a visit for their first summer in business.
