Have you met my main bae, Tequila?

For the Lonely Heart
While the Aviation may be a year round favorite, sometimes it is nice to see a familiar face on such an occasion as V-day. With four ingredients and a bright violet hue, this gin-based sipper is quick to make so you can get back to Facebook stalking your ex or drowning your sorrows in terrible romcoms - any Hugh Grant film will do!
Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth
While the Aperol Spritz may be one of the best warmer weather libations around, this float style twist was made for the dreary days of February. Gelato lends a silkier, seductive vibe to the dessert cocktail and with a little coaxing this after dinner treat may just be the highlight of the evening.
As always, please drink responsibly and cheers!
'Til next time,
