BarView – Churchkey Radler

By Chris Murphy
CK Radler at Churchkey

Jeff Brown and Blake Humble, were in Chicago and they popped into a bar for some refreshment. They ordered one of the local specialties, a Radler and it was refreshing, but it just didn’t have enough punch. So they added a shot of gin and aperitif Campari. This was a winner.

Now, this beverage has a whole new life here in Modesto at Churchkey. New this month is a full new bar, that features our very own DoGood Distillery and their very own Gin, Rum and Whiskeys. So that brings us the CK Raddler. You will notice, when you walk in the front door, that the bar at Churchkey is huge! But keep your eyes to the right and you will notice something new, a full bar! The best of both worlds now fellow ModestoView cocktail lovers.

Amanda Martin is the master of the mix. We start with a mix of Do Good Distillery Gin and Campari over ice and add fresh squeezed lemon juice. Shake and pour over ice. This already sounds delicious, now Jeff pours a refreshing Shofferhofer Shandy with Grapefruit over this mix and stir it up. It is then topped off with a nice wedge of Grapefruit and it is time to enjoy this refreshing liquid treat.

This is some serious citrus flavored summer refreshment friends. The blend of DoGood Gin and the Shofferhofer is magic. The Churchkey team have been fine tuning their menu with a great salad additions, excellent pizzas and really unique items like deep dried cauliflower bites and so much more. You can enjoy eating inside or out on their patio and they are now open for Sunday brunch at 9 am. See you there.
