Ardoise at Craigie on Main
The second the humidity index starts to creep up, it seems like everybody and their mother whips out a hidden cache of Rain vodka. One of the classiest broads of the flavored vodka world, Rain, with straight-from-the-garden cucumber essence, can be found in some of the better vodka cocktails around the city. One of our favorites is the ARDOISE ($11) from the culinary badasses at Central Square's Craigie on Main. The garden theme works particularly well here; they combine the Rain with soft, peppery sage, earthy juniper, and sweet, puckering lime, for a drink that's akin to lying facedown in an herb garden. We're not saying we've considered splashing this on our face instead of drinking it, but we're not denying it either.
