The Mercantile Kitchen & Bar’s Warm-Weather Wonder

The Mayflower’s our twist on the classic summer Pimm’s Cup cocktail, which we happen to think is perfect for enjoying on a hot Saratoga summer afternoon or evening during track season. We got The Mayflower’s name from the old proverb “April showers bring May flowers,” and we’ll be glad to serve you one—rain or shine—this summer.” (Make sure to check out the other great “Next Great Saratoga Cocktail” entries, including The Brook Tavern‘s from our previous issue.)
