Mixology Monday With The Leveretts - Cranberry Whiskey Sour

November 23, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

Hey There,

You might be running around like a turkey with your head cut off, trying to get everything together for this Thursday. You may be upset that many of our plans have been canceled this year, and while 2020 just has not been the best, we want to remind you to pause and think of all the things you are grateful for. It's easy to focus on everything that has gone wrong or what we may have lost, but gratitude helps shift our focus and turns what we have into enough.

As always, if you make any of our drinks, take a picture and share them with us online! Instagram ---> @ staynfocusimages
