What to Drink at James: Palmer’s Pride


Each week in The Daily Shot, we have ourselves a drink that we think you should try, too.

The drink: Palmer’s Pride

The bar: James, 605 Carlton Avenue, Brooklyn

The price: $9

The ingredients: Bourbon, Earl Grey-infused honey, and lemon juice, shaken, then topped with sparkling wine.

The buzz: Earlier this week, we shared the recipe for the chef’s corn soup. Now, what more perfect refreshment could be paired with such a summery dish than a spiked take on the Arnold Palmer? It’s a good thing this bright, fizzy mixture comes in such a tall glass — even so, it goes down in about six long, happy sips. A little sweetness from the honey and tannin from the tea keep what might otherwise be mistaken for a soft drink in check. But make no mistake: This drink is no softie. Bourbon and bubbly are sure to put you in the zone (or insert your favorite golf lingo here).
