behind the bar: something’s hiding in here

by Grace Bonney

Alissa and I are super excited to feature an AMAZING drink from a local Philadelphian couple, Stephen Loidolt and Shauna Alterio of Something’s Hiding in Here.  Not only is their drink absolutely adorable but so is their story so we will let them take it from here… {Alissa + Ryan}

P.S. Make sure to also check out their blog!

shauna and stephen first met at a kissing booth in kansas city. that 25 cents ended up being the best investment shauna ever made. ten years later the creative couple are living in philadelphia and spending their days making all sorts of goods like wooden mustaches on a stick, cheese crate music boxes, and reclaimed wood rings. their loft has been featured in a sneak peek right here on design sponge and as a part of etsy’s video series.

i first made this drink especially for shauna, inspired by all her favorite ingredients. since then, it’s become one of our most popular treats to make for friends. the individual bottles make it perfect for picnics or lazy afternoons in the park.

ingredients (serves 4):

1 1/2 pints fresh raspberries & blackberries (about 4 cups)

1 to 2 tablespoons sugar

6 large springs of fresh mint (about 2 ounces)

juice of 1 lemon

1/2 cup vodka

1 bottle prosecco (750 ml)


reserve some berries for garnish. mash remaining berries, sugar, and herbs in a large bowl. stir in vodka, juice of 1 lemon, and prosecco. pour mixture through a sieve into a pitcher, pressing through; discard solids. pour into 12 oz bottles, add garnish and cork. keep chilled on ice before serving.”
