This fall cocktail begs to be sipped on a crisp night around the bonfire or while under a blanket during your favorite movie marathon.

Confessions of a Mixologist: The Last Word

Gin. What’s not to love? Just as fun to experiment and discover in cocktails as it is to drink. Bartenders Caitey and Angie at our Lincoln Park Tasting Room had fun putting this one together.
