How to Make the Weavers Way Cojitos

Our bartender Don has crafted a special drink featuring fresh mint from
Weavers Way Co-op’s Farms. Stop by for a refreshing glass for only $5 for co-op members. Just show your membership card at the bar, or to your server.

You’ll need:

3 fresh mint sprigs
2 tsp fair trade sugar
3 tbsp fresh lime juice
1 1/2 oz light rum
club soda

Here’s how:

1. Into a tall glass, add fresh Henry Got Crops mint to sugar. Muddle. 
2. Pour in light rum and club soda. Mix. 
3. Top with a stalk of sugar cane, and more fresh mint. 

We invite you to indulge your taste buds in the bold Latin American flavors and tantalizing cocktails that we serve at Philadelphia’s award-winning restaurant, Avenida.

Set in a historic Mount Airy home built in the 1700s, patrons will sit by the stone fireplace or on the romantic outdoor porch sipping margaritas and sampling Chef Edgar’s signature guacamole with homemade tortilla chips and salsa.

Stop by for dinner tonight to sample the award-winning delicacies that he and wife and partner Chef Kim Katz Alvarez have prepared. And do bring the kids! The owners of Avenida pride themselves on being family-friendly.
