Sassafras Cafe joined us live in the studio to show me some of their favorite dishes and drinks to celebrate this Memorial Day Weekend. Owner Neil Laughlin shared with me his favorite summer drink, the Saint Rick. Neil brought in a couple of different burgers for us to try to go along with our summer cocktail.
He demonstrated three different types of burgers that Sassafras features:
The Al Capone– blue cheese and bacon
The Spicy Marie– chilli cheese
The Dillinger– caramelized french onion
There is also five different ways to have these types of burgers prepared, you can have an ostrich, bison, lamb, sirloin or veggie burger.
Saint Rick Drink – basil, cucumber, lime juice, and gin
Make sure to get down to Sassafras on 48th South Second Street in Philadelphia this Memorial Day Weekend. Or visit them on the web at www.sassafrasbar.com.
