Summer flicks just got a fizzy leg up at iPic

Yes, the summer movie season is here, and while we’re not counting on Oscar-worthy treats on the screen, at Boca Raton’s iPic Theater, you can count on top-level food and drinks and those go a long way toward making you appreciate what you’re watching.

You may have seen my interview with iPic’s Executive Bartender/Corporate Sommelier Adam Seger in last year’s July Boca mag. He’s a mixer extraordinaire, with a creative cocktail line all his own. He’s come up with specials for April/May/June at the theater, and here’s his lineup:

  • April: A Belvedere Fizz (pictured) with Belvedere vodka, caramelized spice syrup, vanilla, orange oil, fleur de sel (lux with Belvedere Unfiltered Rare Single Estate Dankowskie Diamond Rye Vodka). I need a drink just listing the ingredients!
  • May: El Mas Curioso is made with Astral Wild Yeast blanco tequila, Singani 63 muscat brandy, yuzu, mint, za’atar and La Boite Mishmish rim.
  • June: Gin Spritz is made with Beefeater gin, Balsam sweet vermouth, soda, lemon and rose water.

Go and have one–or two–for me! Available at all iPics (301 Plaza Real, Boca Raton; 561/299-3000).
