Reston Summer Bucket List: Sip Summer in a Glass

Menu at BarcelonaEvery weekday in August, Reston Now will be offering suggestions for a Summer Bucket List — things to do, places to check out and activities to try in and around Reston before summer’s end.

Obviously, different ideas will appeal to different residents in different age groups. But we are open for ideas. If you have any “must-dos” of summer (even better: with a photo of you/your family participating in said event), email us at [email protected] and we will consider it.

Reston Summer Bucket List Item No. 12: Sip Summer in a glass.

What does summer taste like? Depends on who is doing the tasting.

To us, there is a drink at the new Reston outpost of Barcelona that comes pretty close.

The Summer Street Sling is one cool drink — Chamomile-infused Tito’s Vodka, fresh pink grapefruit and lemon juices and Scrappy’s Grapefruit bitters over ice.

At $9.50, it is a slightly pricey taste of summer, but highly refreshing on one of the last hot days.
