Crooked Kilt

This is summery scotch cocktail Crooked Kilt by Leo Robitschek.

Aperol Spritz

The Aperol Spritz has to be the official drink of summer. Everyone seem to enjoy it, and it’s very understandable.

Vatican City

We had to make one more from Drew Lazor’s new book “Session Cocktails”. This is the Vatican City by Mikki Kristola.
