Summer of Enthusiasm

Bar: Amuse
Bartender: Adam
Cocktail: Summer of Enthusiasm

---By Ann Li Translated by Cara Steenstra

INGREDIENTS:
* Vodka 2oz
* Cointreau 1oz
* Orange juice 2oz
* Grapefruit juice 3oz
* Crushed ice 60% of a full glass
* Midori 1 oz
* Lime Juice 1oz
* A cherry for decoration
* One slice of lemon

DIRECTIONS:
First pour Midori and lime juice into the glass, so that different layers of color appear at the base. Then mix all other alcoholic ingredients with crushed ice in a shaker. Shake contents, then pour into the glass. Decorate with cherry and lemon slice.

Amuse is not very big but it's definitely filled with youthful energy and passion. Open the wine list and you'll find a huge variety of cocktails, some familiar and others creatively new. Manager Nana says that quite a few of the cocktails are her establishment's own inventions and cannot be found anywhere else. One example is this summertime special drink, well liked by many female customers. The alcoholic content is not too strong and it has the freshness of tropical fruit--sweet with a hint of sourness, with added tang from the orange peel. The appetizers are pretty good, too. All made fresh to order at the kitchen, unlike most pubs which buy their food from outside. A good selection of high-quality food and good drinks makes a great combination at Amuse.

Alcoholic drinks are strictly prohibited for those under 18.
