This time of year (especially in Buffalo) calls for celebration. It’s time to drink to the flowers, the budding trees, the dog walking, the rollerblading, and the people watching. It sunny, warm, breezy and the perfect weather for spring cocktails on the porch.
Here are a few of my favorite springtime recipes to get you in the mood:
Add all ingredients, except for soda, in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake well and strain, over ice. Top with soda water and stir. Garnish with slice of apricot or orange.
