Fun and innovative takes on some classic Mexican dishes
It wouldn’t be summer without National Lemonade Day! Fishers Island Lemonade (FIL) kicked off the festivities with a happy hour hidden in New York’s trendy escape from the city, Governors Island. Held on August 16, the evening was spent celebrating Fisher’s craft cocktail lemonades in all their forms including sparkling, frozen (in ice pop form), and of course, in pink.
Taco Vista, the company’s summer collaborator, provided h’orderves and hosted the event which also sought to recognize the entrepreneurial sprit behind the holiday. FIL founder, Bronya Shillo, celebrated her eighth National Lemonade Day as an entrepreneur in a male dominated industry that credits her a pioneer.
Since their launch in 2014, the brand has expanded from their original lemonade cocktails, to more options in a variety pack; a milestone that was launched and celebrated in May. This happy hour afforded an intrigued crowd the opportunity to try all four versions of the cocktail, and the icy pop, under the sunset.
Fishers Island Lemonade, a gluten free mix of lemon, honey, distilled vodka and barrel aged whiskey, is available for purchase on the company website where the Fishers team shares recipes for boozy lemonade cocktails that’ll make for great end of summer drinks!
