Fresh grapefruit-cinnamon syrup was a secret ingredient used by the original tiki master Don the Beachcomber. Try BG Reynolds Paradise Blend, recently renamed from Don’s Mix, in a classic Donga Punch. In an ice-filled shaker, combine 1½ ounces Rhum Clement VSOP, 1 ounce Paradise Blend and ¾ ounce lime juice. Shake vigorously, strain into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with a grapefruit twist. $12. Intoxicology, 4321 Manchester Ave., St. Louis, 314.833.3088, intoxicologystl.com

I did a double take when I saw the price tag on the 2016 Frisk Prickly Riesling. How could such a well-constructed, true-to-varietal Australian wine be so affordable? Crisp acidity balances this beautiful riesling’s sweetness. Pick up a bottle for springtime entertaining and make any wine drinker happy with this over-delivering white. $12. The Wine Barrel, 3828 S.

Boulevard Brewing Co.’s newest portfolio addition, American Kölsch, is a clean, crisp, German-style pale golden ale that will keep you cool as temperatures rise.
Ale fermentation followed by lagering creates a nicely balanced beer. Notes
of bread and yeast on the nose give way to a palate punctuated by
an herbal, citrusy hop expression with just a touch of sweetness. Available at most major grocery stores - Katie Herrera, Co-founder of Femme Ferment and manager at The Side Project Cellar
