Redd Wood ‘Ritas’

The patio at Redd Wood is one of our favorite Yountville hang-out spots. Surrounded by the beautiful Spanish architecture and landscaping of the North Block Hotel, and complete with lounge seating and a fireplace, this is a great spot to stop in for a cocktail before dinner.

Redd Wood Cocktails in Yountville Napa with The Taste SF

We’ve always been fans of the restaurant’s signature Redd Wood ‘Rita.’ The splash of Aperol takes the basic margarita to a new, Italian-inspired level. This summer, they’ve mixed things up with the ‘Rita’ Hayworth. This take on the margarita features house-infused strawberry tequila, Solerno blood orange liqueur (keeping in line with the Italian spin on the classic cocktail), house-made sweet and sour, and lime.

If you’re not feeling adventurous, you can still request the Redd Wood ‘Rita,’ but this summer cocktail is highly recommended. If you’re looking for a cocktail to make at home, try Redd Wood’s Straight to the Melon, made with watermelon and basil chili syrup.

It’s hard to think of a more perfect patio to enjoy a cocktail on a hot Napa Valley afternoon!
