and the Providence Journal bring you Small Bites: Easy-to-Digest Recipes. This week on Small Bites, the owner of Bootblack Brand, a local cocktail syrup maker, brings us a twist on a classic daiquiri. Paul Kubiski started Bootblack Brand after being frustrated with the lack of local, high-quality mixes and syrups for sodas and cocktails. Kubiski shows us how to use his Bootblack Citrus Tonic to make a delicious summer drink you'll be sure to enjoy.
