Cocktail Of The Day- The Cherry Blossom

Cocktail Of The Day- because it’s always cocktail hour somewhere in the world. Remember last week when I said we had three days in a row of sunshine? Well we’re breaking records here folks because it’s been an entire week and I’m a better person for it. The cherry blossoms are in full bloom so it’s only fitting that we partake in a cocktail of the same name! This one comes to you from UVA Wine and Cocktail Bar, home to VanMag’s 2017 Bartender of the Year Sabrine Dhaliwal (not to mention one stellar cocktail program). The Cherry Blossom is a new addition to their spring cocktail list and is rather fitting for our recent change in weather. Enjoy friends!
