Drink of the Day: Sam-Tini

September 4, 2015 | By | Add a Comment

Who doesn’t love a Friday before a long holiday weekend?  This is a perfect day to introduce you to a cocktail that will ease you into this three-day holiday.

Vodka is the base ingredient in this “up” cocktail, with just enough Sambuca and blue curacao to give you the right combination of flavor and color.  The bluish hue, to go along with a touch of anise flavor, arouses the visual beauty and flavor of this cocktail, while the twist of orange brings it all together to entice those who like to get a little tickle of aroma with every sip.  A true cocktail to enjoy before dinner, after dinner, or at the end of your day.

Enjoy the long weekend.  Hopefully, this will get you going in the right direction.  Cheers!
