Spring is nearly here and we are jumping for joy at the thought. Just picture a picnic in the park with your Whiskey Girls, gabbing about your upcoming travel plans on a bright, breezy afternoon. Now you’re excited, right? And you know this picture is only complete if you’re sipping on a beautiful and refreshing cocktail. Well, as we prepare for the season we are getting our gardening tools out, because nothing says spring like an herb garden. We’d love to claim we’ll be using them to perk up our dishes, but let’s be serious, we’re aiming to perk up our beverages. Whether you’re muddling, snipping, or garnishing, there’s something about infusing a drink with herbs that takes it to the next level. In honor of our growing spring fever and our love for you, we’ve designed this Whiskey Girl cocktail to kick off your season. It’s springtime in a glass!
