Roswell Inc.'s 'Summer Sippin' app is live

Roswell Ga. has become a haven for 'foodies" and those that like to try new beverages, so it's only natural that there is an "app for that."

Summer Sippin’ celebrates Roswell, Georgia’s most creative and refreshing season-inspired drink concoctions. During the months of June and July, participating restaurants feature a new, specialty drink using fresh ingredients inspired by summer and reflective of their restaurant.

Patrons are then invited to visit the restaurants, unwind while enjoying a “sip” of Roswell, and rate their drinks to help crown the year’s “Best Sip of Roswell.” The Summer Sippin’ app, available on iOS or Android allows guests to easily view and rate each drink from their phones, as well as access restaurant information and directions to nearby sips. The event features both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drink options, from cocktails to spritzers to specialty iced coffees. Ice coffees offered by the likes of Scooter's Coffee, located at 550 W. Crossville Road.

Scooter’s Coffee is in fact, introducing the CarameliciousÒ Cold Brew & Cream for this event. The signature drink is made with slow-steeped (cold brewed for 24 hours to perfection), shade-grown Guatemalan coffee poured over ice, mixed with a creamy caramel sauce and topped with a splash of real cream.

“We are so excited to be a part of the Summer Sippin’ event in this amazing city of Roswell,” said Deanna Erwin, owner of Scooter’s Coffee in Roswell. “Scooter’s Coffee, along with our barista team, has been overwhelmed by this community’s willingness to share our story and invite their friends and neighbors to experience our world-class coffee. It’s exciting to be a part of a community that embraces family and the success of small businesses.”

Guests are invited to visit each restaurant, try the sips, and rate each one. At the end of the event, the sip with the highest overall rating will be crowned the "Best Sip in Roswell" for 2017. Scooter’s Coffee is based in Omaha, Nebraska, handcrafts its pastries and roasts its own shade-grown coffee,sourced through the Arbor Day Foundation. The company added depth to its profile last year with a new line of organic hot and iced teas, single-origin coffee and Cold Brew n’ Cream. In addition to its nearly. 100% gluten-free beverage menu, Scooter's Coffee also added gluten-free brownies to its product lineup. The company kicked off 2017 with many innovations, including a new rewards mobile app and the Toffee Nut CarameliciousÒ, the first in a growing category ofproducts featuring Scooter’s signature drink, the CarameliciousÒ.

Summer Sippin’ is a sister event of Roswell Restaurant Week. Both events are presented annually by Roswell Inc, the economic development entity for Roswell, Georgia.
