Zak is mixing up some fun cocktail creations at the Accomac Bar! Currently, he is busy making a cracked black pepper infused Vodka, and he’s working with Chef Andre on a carrot puree for a summer vegetable cocktail yet to be unveiled. We’re also looking forward to our own cucumber infused Vodka this summer. If you’re not up to infusing your own, try “Effen” Cucumber Vodka or “Pearl” Cucumber Vodka.
