First Sign of Spring is National Cocktail Day

We have endured months of the chills, runny noses, freezing commutes and those persistent extra Winter pounds that crept in somewhere after Thanksgiving and have made their presence felt ever since.  It’s just about that time to put away those Hot Toddy’s and welcome the warmer weather with open arms and of course, a refreshing Spring cocktail in hand. And just a gentle reminder that pool days are just around the corner.

Let’s celebrate the long-awaited re-introduction of short sleeves, with a few of these thirst-quenching and delicious seasonal sips curated with Woodford Reserve, Crystal Head Vodka, Seagram’s Vodka, Proper No Twelve, Corralejo Tequila and Stella Rosa.

Look like a pro mixologist with this Brushed Stainless Steel 12 Piece Professional Bar Tool Kit on Amazon. It even has a muddler for those trendy Mojitos plus an Illustrated Guide to Cocktail recipes.
