Put the ‘Spring’ Back in Your Step this National Cocktail Day!

BBZ_7340

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.

Let’s celebrate the long-awaited introduction of short sleeves and of course, National Cocktail Day (March 24th) 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.

Cheers!
