Rudy Souberbielle took over the reigns at Tribeca 212 earlier this year, adding more than 30 years of design and hospitality experience to the Olmos Park favorite.
For Tribeca 212’s Brandy Alexander variation, Rudy tapped former co-worker and kombucha maker Bret Roberts to help highlight the apricot flavors in Kinsman Rakia. Roberts’ creation adds a new twist to the much maligned fruitcake by infusing vanilla ice cream with various fruits, and garnishing with dried apricots rehydrated using Kinsman Rakia.
