Shout from the Rooftops
Summer Cocktails Are Even Better with a View
There are few better vantage points to soak in the Providence skyline than the Rooftop at The Providence G. Ascend seven stories to the rooftop terrace and be rewarded with Brian Rashbaum’s Rooftop Spritzer, a juicy and refreshing libation adorned with a fresh berry frozen popsicle that adds equal parts chill and sweetness to your glass of sparkling rosé. The Spritzer is playful and straightforward, an ideal template for summertime hosting: a bottle of chilled wine in the fridge and a perfectly prepared popsicle ready whenever you decide it’s cocktail hour. Before freezing the batch of fresh berry purée, Brian adds a generous splash of sparkling rosé to contour the acidity and texture, delivering a burst of earthy sweetness.
Arrive on the rooftop before sunset to catch the glossy after-work crowd or come late and cozy up to a fire pit under the stars. Order a Love Movement, a simple but serious combination of Vermont’s Caledonia Spirits Barr Hill Gin distilled with juniper and raw honey, fresh lemon juice and lavender syrup. Ambrosial lavender notes and honeyed botanicals from the gin sweep over your senses as you survey the bustling scene. Your martini glass feels immediately at home in your hand as you make your way over to the live band in the corner through a sea of espadrilles and resort wear, a dash of cosmopolitan flair welcome in our sweet but petite capital city.
