“The Tempest” is a Cool Concoction

The Ice Plant in St. Augustine, Florida is an experience of Old Florida. The bar/restaurant was originally (you guessed it) an ice plant, and it was recently awarded the The Adelaide Sanchez award for Preservation from the City of St. Augustine and the Florida Preservation Award for Restoration/Rehabilitation from the Florida Trust for Historic Preservation.

While the building is historic, the cocktails are decidedly new. The juxtaposition of modern and classic is worth toasting to, especially when it’s a cooling concoction with cucumber as its star ingredient.
