Cool River's Strawberry Flip Is Literally Telling Us to Cool Off

The writing is on the wall — well, on the drink in this case. Garnishes have gotten literal. Cool River's new summer cocktail, the Strawberry Flip, has a garnish that makes it clear that this is the right way to cool off this summer. Organic açai powder is added with a stencil to the top of the head, created by vigorously shaking a cocktail containing egg white (or in this case, meringue powder).

The only question is, if they have to tell you it's cool, is it?

The Strawberry Flip, $12: Hand-selected private label Russell’s Reserve Single Barrel Bourbon, strawberry syrup, lemon juice and bitters, topped with organic açai powder
