The Herbalist

My friend Jenn braved Winter Storm Nemo to come have a slumber party at my house. I wanted to make sure to have some good cocktails ready to go when she got here. This is one of my favorites that we created over at The Domestic Mixologist. It was a bit hit! It went great with the Chipotle Chile Candied Pecans that I made (and the goat cheese, of course…but what doesn’t go well with goat cheese?). It was such a refreshing way to start the evening!
