Bartender Ericka Lynn has been serving up drinks at The River’s Edge in Knight’s Ferry for over a year. After spending a lot of time on the other side of the bar she got intrigued by the fancy cocktails and decided to start making them.
“It is awesome,” said Lynn. “We work for really great people. It is an awesome little town on the river.”
Along with serving up a variety of micro brews and several local beers they have a full bar with cocktails and wine.
The most popular cocktail on a Saturday or Sunday is their savory Bloody Mary. This pint of goodness has vodka, spices and is topped with lemon, lime, a Spanish olive and pepperoncini. It has a little kick to it so you may need to order an appetizer like the deep-fried cauliflower or the avocado.
During the summer, Lynn says another fan favorite is the cucumber basil refresher. This cool as a cucumber cocktail is made with gin, fresh cucumber and basil that they gather from their garden on the premises. Served on ice, this cocktail is light and refreshing.
There are other cocktails like the Mojito and the Lemon Drop that are ordered on the regular along with guest favorites on the menu like the shrimp cocktail, calamari, and ahi tuna.
Enjoy the outdoor patio on the edge of the river at The River’s Edge where their motto is “eat, drink and enjoy.”
