It's a gray day in New England, so create the sun shine indoors! . We're headed to @engineroomct in Mystic, CT, to celebrate happy hour with a Fishers. We couldn't help but pop in next door to @mysticknotwork and feel inspired by their springy daffodil yellow sailor bracelets and monkey fists. ☀️ How are you celebrating happy hour?
While Bronya Shillo was growing up, her family owned the only bar on Fishers Island, NY, a seven-mile island near Connecticut in Long Island Sound. When she became old enough to tend bar, she enjoyed the craft of mixing drinks.
Each Friday, she’d blend their signature drink — lemonade mixed with premium spirits and honey — in 15 liter batches. Immensely popular with the summer crowd, it would barely last the weekend. One night she thought, “What if I canned our lemonade?” And hence, Fishers Island Lemonade was concocted.
When you enjoy one on a hot summer afternoon, know that you also help to support environmental causes: Fishers Island Lemonade donates a portion of sales to local organizations and has partnered with 1% For The Planet.
