Local Cocktail: The Audubon Newhall Preserve

Story By Terry Cermak + Photo by Michael Hrizuk

Inspired by the enterprising big city bartenders who created iconic New York-centric cocktails (like the classic Manhattan), LOCAL Life Magazine and Rollers Spirits, Wine & Cheese have leaped to the challenge of creating and adapting cocktail recipes to celebrate Hilton Head landmarks, events, and founding fathers. This month’s inspiration comes from the Audubon Newhall Preserve, a 50-acre tract of woodlands offering a quiet spot to reflect and relax. Go bird watching in your mind with this gentle, ruby charmer. Maybe you’ll spot a cardinal … or two.
