Weekend Refreshments ~ We'll have Manhattan

Manhattan cocktail  

Ella Fitzgerald once sang, 'we'll have Manhattan' and it's where shoe diva Carrie Bradshaw called home.  The island has some of the best restaurants, museums, and real estate in the world.  Don't even get us started on the shopping.

Even though we don't live there, this iconic little cocktail allows us to celebrate the spirit of the city.  

Cheers to the weekend, everyone.
