Wichita bars, restaurants share summer cocktail recipes

For our Perfect Summer section, I was assigned to try and persuade a few local bars and restaurants to share recipes for favorite summer cocktails. That was an assignment I happily accepted.

Melad Stephan, who owns Sabor, Caffe Moderne and Oeno in Old Town Square, gave me the secret to Sabor’s sangria and mango mojito.

Emma Russell at Mort’s shared the recipe for a Golden Mean martini.

And Brooke Russell at Public at the Brickyard not only shared two drink recipes, including one for a very delicious concoction called Gordon’s Cup, but she also agreed to star in a how-to video, which you will see above. I sampled the Gordon’s Cup, and it was refreshing, potent and completely summer-rific.

You can find all those recipes here.

If you burn through this list of cocktails, you could move on to the list of cocktail recipes I got last summer, including one from Taste & See, the Monarch and Heroes.
