The Weekly Boston Tip: Look here for tips on navigating Boston’s fitness, wellness, and food market scene! Katie Andrews will provide a weekly idea to keep you busy – and well – in Boston.

Hanging around Boston for Spring Break?

Don’t let your lack of vacation plans get you down; you can vacation right here in town! Check out these fantastic cocktails to transport yourself to the ski slopes of Colorado, the beaches of Florida or the cobblestones of Italy!

– Wishing you had hit the slopes? Try the Elixir D’Auge at Bergamot in Somerville. Steamy and spicy, this snifter will warm you up on a chilly afternoon.
– Dreaming of soaking up the rays on the beach? Try the Skinny Gingerman at The Abbey in Brookline. This refreshing cocktail comes garnished with a fresh strawberry, reminding you of the summer months to come.
– Envious of your roommate’s European tour? Try one of the high end champagne cocktails at Eastern Standard in Kenmore Square. The Vin Amer Fizz boasts both a frothy egg white and a champagne float. Pair it with 1/2 dozen oysters at the bar and you might as well be sitting with Hemingway in Paris.
