Mixology Monday With The Leveretts - Momento Mori

January 11, 2021  •  Leave a Comment

Hey Hey,

This week’s original cocktail is our take on a fictional martini-like beverage featured in “Death Parade”, a popular anime series released in 2015. That series explored the afterlife and judgement of ones worthiness for reincarnation. The “Momento Mori” is a cocktail with an explicit reminder to be mindful of our pending death and an implicit mandate to be appreciative of life. We hope you enjoy! As always, if you make any of our drinks, take a picture and share them with us online! Instagram ---> @ staynfocusimages
