Thank you Grand Marnier® for partnering with Half Full on the Bartenders At Home cocktail video series.
What inspired you to create this cocktail? “As we have all been home for a few months, I wanted something that feels like a picnic in the park but at home.”
When would you serve this drink? “It’s easy to make and easy to share. I would make pitchers of it for barbecues, picnics and house parties, or just have one before a meal at home.”
What music would you pair it with? ““Out of Time Man” by Mano Negra.”
What food would you pair it with? “Maybe tartare or ceviche.”
Name the person (dead or alive) you’d like to make this cocktail for. “My Uncle. He has always been an inspiration and he taught me a thing or two about drinking.”
