Food & Drink: Raise a Glass

FIRE & SPICE (pictured)
Terra Nova, Sewell
Terra Nova’s selection of dessert cocktails always give us cause to save a little room in between courses. The Fire & Spice is no exception: Rich, Patron Café—a tequila liqueur— meets a strong shot of espresso and rum, then gets finished with chocolate bitters and a splash of maple syrup for a smooth and sweet way to end the evening.

SPICED POMEGRANATE MARGARITA
Distrito, Moorestown
Pomegranate infused tequila is blended with pomegranate purée, fresh lime and a specialty simple syrup spiced with canela—or Mexican cinnamon—cloves and allspice, then served in a glass rimmed with ancho chili powder and Mexican chocolate. The mix of sweet and spicy is perfect for the season, and gives us the only excuse we need to drink icy margaritas in any weather.

TOM COLLINGSWOOD
Cooper House, Pennsauken
This drink sticks pretty close to the original Tom Collins, featuring Rowhouse brand gin, fresh squeezed lemon, simple syrup and club soda. But it gets an extra dose of sweetness, color and flavor with the addition of grenadine.
