Is it just me, or is there something extra sophisticated about attending a dinner party with grown-up cocktails on offer, instead of s stock-standard spirit and mixer? You know what I'm talking about - a legitimate, shaken-not-stirred cocktail that screams effort.
It's a rare treat that always leaves me pleasantly surprised and makes me wonder why I don't do it more often myself. I can be fancy too, OK?
If you're looking to impress your friends, SO or even just yourself, venturing away from your trusty go-to beverages and experimenting with an unexpected cocktail is the perfect place to start.
And I hear you, people who snuck ahead and peeped the ingredients . . . Jack Daniels? In a fancy cocktail? I know, I get it - same - but try them first and thank me later.
