Hey Foodie (and cocktail loving) Friends, welcome to our tenth edition of a fun series here at Tallahassee Foodies – Boozy Tuesdays.
As the name suggests, every Tuesday this Summer, we’ll be serving up a new summer cocktail recipe to accompany those fresh and tasty dishes you’ll be making at home all season!
To amp up this series and take advantage of what Tallahassee has to offer, I’ve enlisted the help of our favorite pro local bartenders that know EXACTLY how to whip up a custom cocktail.
When I pitched this summer beverage idea to a few local establishments, Madison Social jumped in on our “fun in the sun” beverage series! I can’t believe Madison Social gave up one of their very own cocktail recipes to our Boozy Tuesdays series, by my request.
I hosted a food photography class at Madison Social two years ago, my mom attended, and we both LOVED this tasty little beverage we ordered called The Higher Line. I thought this might be the perfect opportunity to get that recipe out of them, and it worked!!! Thanks so much, Madison Social!!!
The Higher Line is the cousin of The High Line, one of the original cocktails on the Madison Social menu back in 2013. It has been a consistent favorite amongst customers, with many asking for the recipe upon leaving Tallahassee so they can recreate at home.
The drink’s name comes from the High Line district of New York, where owners Brian and Katie McKenna conceptualized many aspects of Madison Social. The Higher Line is a well balanced drink with elements of sweet and sour to make a well rounded drink. This drink is perfect for summertime, but can be enjoyed any time of the year.
The Higher Line
- 1.5 oz Svedka Raspberry Vodka
- 2-3 muddled blackberries
- 0.5 oz lemon juice
- 2 oz lemon lime soda
- Combine vodka, blackberries, lemon juice into shaker, add ice, shake contents to mix ingredients. Muddle blackberries in the bottom of a glass, and pour contents over blackberries, topping with lemon lime soda.
