Kirkland’s Beach Café at Carillon Point is the ideal spot to savor the fading summer days and look to the autumn season ahead.

Although all of the café's signature cocktail offerings reflects those seasonal changes, the Lakeside Sunset, with its bright, vibrant color and mixed with ingredients like rosemary and blood orange, particularly stands out. You can sip this cocktail at the Beach Café’s waterfront location — or make it at home.

Beach Café is located at the Woodmark Hotel & Still Spa at 1200 Carillon Point in Kirkland; more details here.
