The “SPF 1000” Cocktail Brings Sunshine to Any Day

In this edition of "Drink This", Sirjoon Elassl of The Spotted Owl in Tremont shows how to create the SPF 1000, a herbal ginger-y cocktail.

While Summer may be on the wane, ordering the SPF 1000 cocktail will be a ray of sunlight in your heart. An herbal-meets-spicy flavor profile makes this selection a deep dive into what this bar does best: drinks that demand your attention.

In this week’s “Drink This” video series, we have our second collaboration with The Spotted Owl (710 Jefferson Ave), a cocktail bar in the Tremont neighborhood. Bartender Sirjoon Elassal walks us through the drink building process, from the story behind the name, to the best way to shake up the drink.

The Spotted Owl offers a unique bar experience, including the option to order from a “Cocktail Wheel”, where you can have a one-of-a-kind concoction based on your mood and preferred taste profile. While the profile of the SPF 1000 is so complex, it can be hard to put into words, one thing you will know: it tastes great.
