🍹 Introducing the newest addition to our cocktail menu: Hush Money! 🤫🤑

This delicious concoction is the perfect blend of flavors, with a hint of irony. 🍸 Sip on this drink and raise a glass to the fact that even 34 felonies means nothing if you have enough money!

Hush Money features Sour Apple (in the Big Apple), Jack Daniel’s Apple, Lemon and just a little man’s hand size of Blue Curacao
😉 Cheers to transparency and a little bit of humor! 🥂
