Drink: The Solstice
With Laird’s applejack brandy, lavender honey, lemon juice, and sparkling wine, this cocktail at Bluestem is the perfect late-summer drink. And with a new bar menu, you know you need to head to this Westport restaurant, considered one of the best in Kansas City.
The drink: sweet, fruity, floral, tart.
The lavender honey adds a subtle floral aspect to the apple brandy while the sparkling wine gives it a light effervescence and keeps it interesting on the tongue.
