Juicy, sweet summer sips!Strawberries from growers in the Puyallup Valley provide deliciousness to Anthony’s throughout Western Washington, and Anthony’s in Eastern Washington and Oregon have similar proximal grower-partners to give farm freshness to the menu items you enjoy. Your chance to sip the berry best arrives in mid to late June. Try a Strawberry Lemonade, whose tartness is offset with the floral-berry flavor of strawberry, the Strawberry Summer Cooler (fresh strawberries, guava, soda and Stoli vodka), and the herbaceous Strawberry Mojito (a local twist on a Caribbean favorite: fresh strawberries, lime, Bacardi rum and mint over ice).
