If you like prosecco, or any cocktail that bubbles, then keep reading.
On our last trip to New York we stayed at the lovely Conrad New York hotel in lower Manhattan. Having logged more work related travel miles than we care to admit, we are seasoned, jaded travelers and nothing impresses us. Seriously, nothing.
But we Love. This. Place.
Immaculate, stylish rooms, yummy breakfast in the bistro, friendly staff, and fun rooftop bar with stunning views. (No, the Conrad did not pay us to say this). We spent each night enjoying a cocktail at the Loopy Doopy rooftop bar – home of the prosecco and ice pop cocktail! So, as we we kick off the summer season, we decided to recreate a little piece of our trip right here 20 miles east of Austin – Italian Cowboy style of course!
Peaches are a staple of Texas summers – so we thought what could be more Italian Cowboy than peach sorbotto-on-a-stick made in Italy garnished with rosemary grown in our backyard Texas garden?
We love the peach fruit bars from Galvanina – organic, vegan, small batch, family run, Italian – what’s not to love? The lemon shape is too cute. It’s summer in a glass! A rosemary garnish adds an herbaceous aroma and balances the combo with a hint of savory goodness.
If you find yourself in New York even, stop in and have a cocktail at the Loopy Doopy rooftop bar. You won’t regret it!
Ok so it’s pecan trees and farm fields and not a view of lower Manhattan. But still such a nice way to remember a lovely visit and welcome summer to central Texas!
