Holly’s Year of Cocktails 2

ntcopen2And so another year of cocktails has come and gone and, gin-around-the-rosies, you people are unstoppable. When super storm Sandy came and went did that hold you up from naming those cocktails? NO! Did a knockdown mud slinging (mud wrestling would have been more fun) election stop you? Not even for a second. Did a new waxing salon (MEOW) opening slow you down? Maybe just for a quick wax on, wax off, Hello Kitty, but only for a second!

Right. My point is you guys are GOOD! Damn good.

So for all of you who have helped make these post so much fun to write, please keep it coming! Below are the fermented and distilled fruits of our combined work from 2012-2013.
