Surf City Spritz

Dan Sabo & Harry May Kline | Los Angeles

Named for the site of the Jersey Shore’s first resort, the Mansion of Health, the Ace Hotel’s go-to summer cocktail likewise aims to both refresh and revitalize. Crafted from a list of ingredients that includes elderflower, quinine, and nutmeg—all believed at various points in history to have medicinal properties—the Surf City Spritz winks at California’s health-conscious culture. While there’s nothing actually medicinal about the concoction, the tropical flavors of pineapple, coconut, and honey offer their own form of invigoration.
