What inspired you to create this cocktail? “I was inspired by the warm summer weather and some ingredients I had in my kitchen. I wanted a drink that was approachable for anyone to make in their homes.”
When would you serve this drink? “I would serve this in the afternoon or right before dinner. It’s a great way to entertain people before a long evening.”
What music would you pair it with? “I’m all over the place with music. But some chill R&B would be great to relax to while still having a good beat.”
What food would you pair it with? “I’d serve this with some fresh veggies and fruit with dips. Something light and crisp that anyone can have.”
Name the person (dead or alive) you’d like to make this cocktail for. “Michelle Obama.”
