Try this fruit-forward and low-proof cocktail between July 14 and August 6 at UVA as a part of the Pride Cocktail Crawl Fundraiser for Dr. Peter AIDS Foundation. 

Haskap liquer gives it a touch of berries and blackcurrant, while cranberry bitters and fresh lemon juice add tartness.

1 oz. Belvedere Vodka
1/4 oz. Okanagan Spirits Haskap liqueur
1/2 oz. apple black tea
3/4 oz. lemon juice
2 dashes Bittered Sling Cranberry Bitters
6 oz. soda water

Combine all ingredients (except soda) into a cocktail shaker.

Add ice and shake vigorously for 7 to 10 seconds.

Strain over fresh ice in a collins glass and top with soda.
