Cocktail Recipe: Raspberry Mojito at Davio's Northern Italian Steakhouse
Respite from the heat can be easily found on 17th Street just north of Sansom, where the high-ceilinged second floor of an old beaux arts building is dedicated to the bar, comfortable lounge and main dining room of Davio’s.
The Rittenhouse steakhouse has a solid drinks program, participating in Center City Sips and even offering specials like boozy ice pops, and for the summer the bartenders there have introduced a series of summer cocktails. We selected the Raspberry Mojito as our Drink of the Week, because it looks so refreshing and summery, we know it will do you well. Check out the cocktail recipe below to muddle one up for yourself, or head to Davio’s to get one from the pros ($12).

Bar spoon of sugar
Splash of lime juice
2 oz. Don Q rum
