Mixology Monday With The Leveretts - Clean Slate

November 02, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

Hey Hey!

We're Back! For the last almost 4 months we have been in transition, between selling our former home, moving into a temporary apartment and patiently waiting for construction on our new home to be completed. Although we are very much still in the process of settling in and furnishing this place, we wanted to restart this series. This week is dedicated to new beginnings, and we call this refreshing cocktail, Clean Slate. We hope you enjoy. As always, if you make any of our drinks, take a picture and share them with us online!
