Hump Day Happy Hour
Raise a Glass for the Start of SpringBy Julie Fishman
Hide away the bulky sweaters and bring out the fun, flirty fashion. The sun is shining, the birds are chirping and the bees are buzzing. Spring has officially sprung. Kick the season into full bloom with a hibiscus-topped cocktail that's sure to thaw any leftover winter blues.
Pairing perfectly with baseball and barbeques, The Mixing Room's “Rooftop Passion” has hints of almond, vanilla, ginger and clove, which turn what would be a typical margarita into a Mexi-Caribbean concoction that'll make you feel like you're on permanent spring break.
Lean that lawn chair back and pour yourself a tall glass of “Rooftop Passion,” because an extra hour of sunlight for the kids equals an extra hour of “me time” for you.
