Where to find it: Highball & Harvest, The Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes
In September, The Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes introduced a brand-new restaurant, Highball & Harvest ("H&H"), with an interactive cocktail table, featuring hand-carved ice, cocktail-making lessons, herb-infused ice cubes, ingredients from the resort's on-property farm, and more. For a citrusy taste of Orlando in the summer, try to rum-based Summerlin’s Smash.
