This month’s cocktail highlight features a delicious take on the French 75 created by Roman, one of our good friends over at Donna Mac. Roman’s version features a lavender twist, making it a perfect alternative to a mimosa at your next Sunday brunch or a refreshing cocktail to impress your friends with on a warm spring night.
