3 drinks to make at home this weekend
We aren't certified in mixology, and our drink choice is typically of the minimal variety, but we decided it was time to step it up a notch. Meet Elliot Clark, a top cocktail and spirits influencer and the face behind Apartment Bartender. We asked Elliot to put together a few drinks (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) for you to make at home this weekend. So grab your bar cart (or head to your cupboard) and let's get started.
