Para Mis Abuelos
Like this Recipe
I wanted to dedicate this cocktail to my grandparents, who have all since passed (two passed this year). It’s tradition that, on Dia De Los Muertos, Marigolds were used to guide spirits to the Offrenda, using their vibrant colors and aromatic scent. To keeping with tradition and to honor their lives...Here’s to Mis Abuelos.
