Mixology Monday With The Leveretts - Sunday Morning in the Park

April 03, 2022  •  Leave a Comment

Hey there!

Today's drink is a riff on the Sunday in the Park cocktail. We swapped out the fresh squeezed lemon juice for orange juice, so we're calling it Sunday Morning in the Park. We stumbled onto the original recipe online and it's my fault. Frank wanted an afterwork drink; however, I had already poured the last glass of wine he had been thinking about having. I also used the last lemon we had in the dish I was photographing! Whoops!  So... it was kind of like a Food Network's Chopped Challenge basket but with alcohol. This was the tasty result, we hope you enjoy!

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