New Yorkers’ fondness for cocktails gave us the Manhattan, Long Island iced tea or the Brooklyn, to name a few. Many Lowcountry residents love a great, locally named cocktail as well. With that in mind, the team of mixologists at Rollers Beer, Wine & Spirits have created a series of cocktails that celebrate local landmarks, events and founding fathers. This month’s featured libation is The Daufuski de Leche. While the shot of caffeine will prepare you for exploring the island’s pleasures, the smooth, salty caramel will relax you as you reflect on the joys of the day.
