July is a time to bask in the sun and enjoy a great cocktail outdoors. We thought it would be fun to send local blogger Stephany Wieland out on the town to check out some of the cool drinks St. Croix Valley bartenders are stirring up this season.
Wieland was among five finalists in a 2014 international cocktail competition hosted by British TV chef Jamie Oliver. Not a mixologist by trade, the mother of two is a 911 dispatcher, wedding photographer and recurring guest on Twin Cities Live on KSTP-TV.
Amy Trushenski (formerly Danielson) of Edina Grill, voted this year’s best bartender by readers of Edina Magazine, was recently married. She might have a new last name, but her great instinct for making delicious drinks remains unchanged. For summer cocktails that are easy, sweet, exotic, colorful and maybe even a little adventurous, Trushenski offers some ideas for spirited, homemade drinks for your summer sipping.
