IMG_8295_edited-1

It’s our anniversary and we’ve been celebrating all weekend long. There’s a lot to toast to and even more to celebrate. These are happy times deserving of a special cocktail. Since it’s citrus season and blood oranges are abundant, why not? Gin is our spirit of choice and we had a smooth, subtle aromatic one on hand that paired well with the blood orange juice. Topped off with a sweeter sparkling wine, this cocktail it was fit for a celebration. Cheers!
