You know what they say: People in glass restaurants should make delicious drinks. (Wait, is that how that goes?) Savor Gastropub is nestled at the edge of Klyde Warren Park and offers great food, well-crafted cocktails and amazing people watching.

Their saké sangria is a new slant on a traditional (and usually simple) drink, thanks to the slight bite of the rice wine that's balanced out with the tartness of the white cranberry. A touch of sweetness from the demerara makes this one cocktail that's easy to sip on a warm summer afternoon while watching the kids enjoy the park — or you could make it at home with a much less entertaining view.

2.5 parts Saké
0.5 parts demerara
0.5 parts lemon juice
0.5 parts peach liqueur
1 part white cranberry juice
1/2 apricot
1/4 peach

Muddle the apricot and peach in a shaker. Add other ingredients to the shaker and shake until combined. Strain into a wine glass over fresh ice, then garnish with a dried apricot and mint leaf.

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
