Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

The sun has finally shown its face, and just in time for Friday happy hour. To celebrate its arrival -- and the weekend's, for that matter -- we recommend throwing back one of Sadie LA's three boozy floats: Peychauds ice cream and Sanbitter; Fernet Mente chip and Mexican coke; or Chartreuse ice cream and bubble up float, all at $8 each.Our favorite of the trio is Giovanni Martinez's Peychaud's ice cream and Sanbitter. The float is a grown-up version of an orange cream, with an added element of tartness that comes from Sanbitter, a piquant, citrusy Italian soda that's considered an apertif due to its digestive qualities. (Are you sensing a theme with last weeks Virtual Happy Hour? We are kind of obsessed with apertifs right now.) The recipe for Martinez's cocktail can be found here, but let's get real: It's Friday, and you deserve to kick back and have someone serve you.

If you simply make it over for happy hour today, be sure to check out the Art Beyond the Glassevent this Sunday. The floats -- along with countless other cocktails and art installations -- will be there. So should you!
