Spring is upon us again, and not a moment to soon! As we shake of the cloak of winter, we can once again enjoy light refreshing cocktails that make a Spring evening so wonderful. This week’s cocktail was created by Manny Hinojosa, winner off last year’s Shake It Up: The Battle of the Mixologists competition. The Cielo Rosso, Manny’s creation using Campari, SKYY infusions Citrus, Ruby Red grapefruit juice, Lemon Juice and simple syrup laced with a bit of basil ans lemon peel is an amazing burst of flavor that is perfect as the weather get warmer.
