Introducing our summer-romance cocktail list
This is a work of Tinder-fiction. Names, characters, businesses, places, loves, events, locales, loves-lost and incidents are either the products of our disturbed imagination or used in a spontaneous, fictitious manner. Any resemblance to actual persons, living or dead, or actual events is purely a coinkydink.
Hark, the new cocktail list is summer ready. Quenchable, crushable, enjoyed on its own or with others – we’ve delved deep into the beer-garden psyche and matched each libation to a hot date. It’s your lucky-dip, or go-to when you just don’t know what to drink.
