Cocktail Recipe: Almond Joy Espresso Martini

Happy Hour

“Trick or treat..smell my fe…” Just kidding! It’s way more appealing as an adult to say, “Trick or treat…drink this drink!” Which you will, trust me! As I’ve mentioned in my other cocktail posts, I’m a big fan of low effort high impact cocktails, especially when entertaining. When you host a gathering you also want to […]
