I’ve never been much of a cocktail guy but I tried a couple that Mike Everson, Groovy Grapes Cocktail Chef and owner of Shakerz Hospitality put together for a client event we had last week and I may well be converted. He designed a couple of drinks that really surprised me. I’ve got this warped perception that a lot of mixed drinks are sweet and boozey. Check out his recipes below these drinks were refreshing, dry(ish) and really unique.
