Kudos from the Newport Stylephile!

The Bevvies: The Pickens is the only theater town serving up craft cocktails, so while you can opt for a trusty Mojito or Dark n' Stormy, consider one of their specials like the Pom Fresco (vodka, cucumber, pomegranate, Prosecco and fresh lemon), Jane Pickens (gin, Pimm's, lavender and fresh lime), Gotham City (barrel aged Manhattan), Selma (tequila, habanero, cilantro, grapefruit and fresh lime) or the Sailor's Cider (Newport's own Thomas Tew Rum with cider). Me? I chose a simple split of Prosecco. Cheers!
