Signature Cocktails

October 9, 2013

More than anything, Josh and I drink beer and wine. But there are a few occasions that call for a thrifty summer cocktail or a warm winter liquor.

…and, for fall, a Refined Hobo (with red wine, cinnamon syrup, absinthe, scotch, maraschino and lemon juice)

Would you try any of these? And brides, what did you drink on your wedding day? I’m nervous I will spill red wine all over me!

    If you like whiskey, you MUST try to find Forty Creek! It’s my husband and my favorite! Everyone we introduce to it falls in love! It can be tricky to find but in NYC you shouldn’t have any problems!
