World Cocktail Day

Shaken or stirred, bourbon or vodka, whatever is in a cocktail says a lot about the person drinking it. Tequila is usually for the playful, yet polished sipper, gin for the intelligent and witty type or even whiskey for the down to earth, no holds barred imbiber. But don’t let stereotypes determine what you’ll enjoy this Friday night! It’ll be World Cocktail Day and we want you to find your cocktail niche.

Cocktails should be a generous blend of ingredients far beyond just sweetener, water and bitters. Make it herbed, make it infused, or make it your own! Just make sure you make it how you love it and raise it high in the air to toast its existence.
