All month long, we're celebrating the people, places, dishes and traditions that make the South so special. Come take a seat at our table.

Brooks Reitz of Saint Alban and Leon's Oyster Shop in Charleston loves Ryan Casey's bright orange-colored cocktail made with gin, grapefruit juice and tonic (first concocted by Casey while he was at FIG). It's the Aperol, the spirit made with a variety of herbs and roots, that gives this cocktail its unique taste.
