    Savor The Summer: Drinks Edition

    It’s time to explore and toast the different drinks of the summer! From wine slushies to milkshakes, there are new flavors in Bethlehem that are best savored in the summer. Get ready to indulge in a little goodness!

    Shake up Summer!


    Fruity Pebbles Shake—Edge is bringing back your inner child this summer with a house-made vanilla ice cream shake topped with a Fruity Pebbles Rice Krispies treat.


    At Edge, all shakes can be ordered “grownup style”, with the addition of the spirit of your choice. (Edge’s bartending team recommends a vanilla or cherry vodka to put this confection over the top!)
