Pomme Palais Adds Refreshing Flavors to its Summer Drink Menu

Sweet simple syrup, soothing green tea, house-muddled raspberries, fresh lemon juice: four ingredients, one revitalizing way to greet the summer heat. Pomme Palais is introducing this blend – the Mixed Berry Refresher – along with a collection of custom drinks crafted specifically for summer.
