It's probably important to mention here that our amazing queer team members shape our pride programming, from the cocktail menu to the vendor selection to the messaging. This summery, fruity cocktail has the bite of the bitters and that spot-on floral balance of the orange blossom and rose waters, the perfect ode to our partnership with U-Haul Events. Sometimes, it's totally worth rushing into something.

Half a bottle of 504Silver
1 gallon of lemonade
7 packets of lemon lime jello
4oz of simple syrup
Pour a half gallon of lemonade into a large container with the 504Silver and simple syrup.
Put the other half gallon of lemonade in the microwave and heat until almost boiling.
Stir in packages of gelatin into the cold liquid. Incorporate well.
While the hot lemonade half-gallon is still very hot,
slowly pour the hot liquid into the cold liquid while stirring constantly.
Continue stirring until everything is dissolved.
Pour into individual 2oz cups.
Makes 120-ish jello shots.
Jello shots are becoming a bit of a theme-day tradition here at Happy Raptor. Ever since our 504Hibiscus Lemonade jello shots at Mardi Gras 2022, we're a little obsessed. When our Jurassic Park trivia and themed menu rolled around, well...we spared no expense.

3/4oz. raw sugar simple syrup
Place the cucumber, mint, lime, and simple syrup into the shaker.
Muddle until the cucumber is broken up.

1.5oz jasmine tea
1oz lemon juice
1oz raw sugar simple syrup

We used a little goblet glass here, but let's not be too pretentious about it.

3/4oz cane syrup
3/4oz pineapple juice
1/2oz lemon juice
Shake vigorously with ice.
Strain into a coupe glass (or whatever you have on hand, right?)

Did you know that we have a secret menu? It's not something formal... it's more like "if you know, you know". Like most of our behind-the-scenes specials, My Fair Raptor is the product of creating and playing around behind the bar during a long shift. In this case, our bartender Richard has done it again. With the pineapple and lemon bringing this 504Bananas Foster a burst of brightness in this early summer season, it's a quick favorite of our team... and our regulars!
