Behind the Stick with Sean Ward of Nolita Hall

Our friend Sean Ward of Nolita Hall shows us how to make their refreshing cocktail called “Still Summer Somewhere" while chatting about his start in the bartending industry.

What's the story behind the Still Summer Somewhere?

To quote Daniel Tosh “People say California doesn't have any seasons they need seasons. That is why I live somewhere that skips all the shity ones.” San DIego has one of the best Climates in the world. Just because it's January doesn't mean it can't be a beautiful sunny day. When the winter menu came out we wanted to still have a refreshing option. It's Still summer somewhere embraces the fact that we live in such a beautiful city.


.25 oz lemon juice

1 oz strawberry shrub

1 oz Cynar

1.5 oz Gin

If you had to pair this cocktail with a dish, what would you pair it with?

I think our Old School Pizza would pair perfectly with this cocktail. Light tart lemon flavor with the saltiness of Prosciutto and the peppery flavor of arugula which compliment the Rucolino in the drink
