Cleveland Summer Swing

This bourbon whiskey cocktail knows how to do it. That’s partially because Cleveland has very little time in which to enjoy the very little nice weather, so we have mastered the art. The Cleveland Summer Swing will teach you a few things about Summer and Swinging no matter your location. Amaretto, Apricot Brandy, Ginger beer and lemon. Yeah, we Clevelanders know what’s what. Year ‘round. Rain or shine.

½ oz   Amaretto
