Palate Reviver: Hawks Restaurant’s Ginger Julep


Long work day? Busy, overscheduled weekend with the kids? If you’re in serious need of a pick-me-up, tuck into one of Hawks’ sprightly Ginger Juleps.

Composed with Woodford Reserve bourbon, ginger syrup and fresh ginger, the mint-garnished cocktail offers up a bright, zingy, refreshing flavor that revives the tiredest of palates (and spirits). Polish one off before guzzling a bowl of Hawks’ fabulous puree of English pea soup—a joyous celebration of spring that harbors a succulent secret: a mound of warm, creamy-soft goat cheese sformato hidden deliciously at the bottom of the bowl.
