Refreshing summer cocktails tease and tickle the palate, particularly those served at Bibi’z Restaurant in Westwood when fragrant summer fruits and herbs combine to create earthy, floral and herbaceous notes. Bibi’z Blossom, a flowery, feminine and seductive libation, blends St. Germain Elderflower liqueur and whole Australian hibiscus flower preserved in raspberry and rhubarb-infused simple syrup, is the quintessential feminine summer cocktail.

The delicate Hibiscus blossom is edible, and floats seductively in a soft pink hued ombination of organic fruit juice, vodka, liqueur and a splash of lemon-lime soda. The taste and fragrance of handpicked elderflowers married with Australian hibiscus provides earthy, herby undertones that add delicate balance to the sweetness of organic fruit juice and fruit-imbued citrus soda.

“Summer cocktails are in a class by themselves and give the mixologist an opportunity to bring color, taste, fragrance and vibe together in one elegant, refreshing libation,” said Ida Assaf, founder of Bibi’z Restaurant|Lounge. “The Bibi’z Blossom is so classy and feminine, melding delicious flavor combinations with pear-flavored vodka to whimsically celebrate the spirit and true flavors of summer.”


White Peach Sangria is another classic summer bar favorite, perfect for both men and women wanting refreshing fruitiness and the bracing qualities of an iced cocktail. This versatile sangria is delightful when sipped before dinner or paired with a variety of grilled proteins like fish, beef or chicken.
“White Peach Sangria marries delicate sparkling wine such prosecco, moscato or cava with organic ginger ale, freshly squeezed orange juice and bite-size chunks of organic summer fruits, whether stone fruit or berries, creating a drink that is cooling, delicious and bright with citrus and fruity notes,” explained Assaf. “White Peach Sangria is a versatile, elegant concoction and delights the palate with tiny bubbles, muddled fruit and a hint of peach schnapps for sweetness. It offers thirst-quenching deliciousness that compliments nibbles, salads as well as hearty grilled fare.”

The Skinny Karma – Rita is a delicious, low-calorie (70 calories) play on the classic margarita using Karma Natural Tequila, Agave Nectar and fresh lime juice. The delicate flavors are balanced by a salt kissed martini glass rim. “Skinny Karma – Rita is light, refreshing with a subtle sweetness thanks to agave, a natural Mexican sweetener with low sugar input,” explained Assaf. “Weighing in at a mere 70 calories, the Skinny Karma – Rita is a guilt – free pleasure.”
