Spring Cocktails Refresh


I don’t know how it started, but in the past few years I’ve become equally intrigued by the craft cocktail movement as I am with the world of wine. I began to contribute to a variety of papers and magazines and am proud to share a recent round-up of cocktails with you.

It’s fun hopping around to a few restaurants and bars to sample the incredibly creative drinks they offer. Please check out my most recent favorites by clicking here. Whether you’re in the city or ‘burbs, there’s lots to try so don’t be shy. Just please, have a designated driver.
