The Refresher

INGREDIENTS Choice of housemade infusion, muddled citrus, Sierra Mist and club soda, $9

The bar at Bayou on Bay has the comforting feel of a neighborhood tavern, but one located in a bustling intersection of downtown Bellingham. Step inside and settle in. Twinkling lights hang inside and romantic art scatters the walls. This makes the perfect place to sit with friends for drinks while watching the world whirl by from the big, open windows out front.

The Refresher is a lively drink that brings a slice of summer to your October. The first taste of citrus, muddled and sharpened by the soda, can (temporarily) banish thoughts of impending winter gloom. Sit in the front window of the bar on a sunny fall day and this drink will quench your thirst in a hot minute. If you must, The Refresher can be personalized. An array of vodka flavors can be chosen to mix this drink up. Choose from a jalapeño, ginger, black pepper, or citrus vodka to customize as you wish.
