Drink of the Week: La Vida Buena

Photo: Sal Agnello
The timing for our Drink of the Week couldn’t be better—just in time for the long weekend. The La Vida Buena cocktail from New Orleans’ Bellocq bar combines a berry-infused rum with fresh citrus and a sultry black tea syrup, and it’s easy enough to batch out ahead of time, making it perfect for holiday barbecues—simply pour into a glass filled with crushed ice and swizzle until frosty. A perfect reminder of la vida buena. Click here for the recipe.
