Confessions of a Mixologist: Moonlight Graham

Tagged:

Bartender Kyle whipped this one up with ingredients that he had in his home while jamming to some tunes. His playlist must have been on point because he mixed up one delicious cocktail. The ginger and raspberry syrups mix eloquently and blend well with the Armagnac and Fernet Branca to make one deliciously smooth drink.
