The Library is, indeed, the site of Wallingford’s old town library. The restored circa 1899 building in historic downtown offers traditional and unique twists on Portuguese and Mediterranean cuisine, pizza, dessert, wines from around the world and unique cocktails.

Bar Manager: Megan Crooker

Cocktail: Party in the Library

Recipe: Pack a shaker with ice, then add:

  • 2 oz. Absolut Vodka
  • 1 oz. St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur
  • 2½ oz. Blood orange puree
  • A few splashes of fresh lime juice

Shake. Strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with twist of orange or lime wheel.

“This martini is a tasty balance of sweet and sour, where the tanginess of the fresh blood orange puree intermingles with the sweetness of the elderflower,” said Crooker. “It’s just a twist on the cosmopolitan where the blood orange replaces the cranberry and the St. Germain replaces the triple sec.”
