cocktail ideas – because it’s always 5 o’clock somewhere

moscow mule cocktail | The Secret Life of Bee

I recently did some work for the awesome folks at Fitch & Leedes and wanted to share some of the delicious cocktail recipes and pics here! Their bespoke mixers are destined to become delicious cocktails and I was only too happy to oblige. I loved that sipping on a G&T at 10am was WORK! I did lots of ‘working ‘ during this shoot. I obviously had to make sure they all tasted good. And some had to be tasted several times just to be positive!

The cocktails are simple, yum and fun and I highly doubt I need to convince anyone that making them is a damn fine idea. So cheers!
