It’s official. The hashtag of the spring is #drinkology.

Ingredients: (pictured in the first photo above) Makers Mark, blueberry & lemon preserves, mint, Hum Demerara Syrup (made in Chicago!), ginger beer and lime.
Allium Corpse Reviver

Ingredients: Hendricks, Cocchi Americano Combier Royale, Lemon Juice Belvoir and mint/cocchi infused cucumber
Spring Citrus Margarita
Trust me when I say, blood orange is so in this year!
Ingredients: Patron Reposado, Combier Royale Blood Orange, Meyer Lemon, Sorrel Rhubarb Bitters, lime juice and agave

Ingredients: Grey Goose, Cantaloupe Juice Crème y’vette, sprig of thyme, soda
