Enjoy thoughtfully crafted cocktails, domestic and local brews, and a vast wine selection at Carpenter Bar in downtown Sioux Falls. It’s hard to choose where to sit between the modern-rustic inside and the chic patio outside.

605 was able to get two modified cocktail recipes that are great for the nice weather, all while not giving too many secrets away.



Fresh Mint leaves

Angostura Bitters

1 ½ oz. Tequila


San Pellegrino Pompelmo Soda


Pick off 15 fresh mint leaves and place in glass. Big ones have the most flavor in them.

Don’t push too hard on mint or it will break vessels.

Add ice.

Followed by tequila.

Top off with San Pellegrino Pompelmo Soda.

Stir for minty flavor.

Take a new leaf, open up in hand, smack to release natural aroma.

“It goes down easy, and I love tequila. What’s not to love?”

Raspberry Collins


1 ½ oz. of favorite gin (or “if you’re a coward, use vodka”)

¾ oz. simple syrup

5 raspberries


¾ oz. freshly-squeezed lemon juice

Club soda


Muddle raspberries for flavor.

Fill a collins glass with ice.

Put ice in shaker.

Give a shake.

Strain over ice to avoid seeds.

Top off with club soda

Add more raspberries.

“It’s fresh, summery, and it’s nice because there are fresh raspberries available. It’s a crowd pleaser.”
