Yes, this is our CLE game lubricant of choice. Pre and post. Legend has it that it is responsible for touchdown passes, and, when shared with teammates, impossible field goals, sacks, and awesome interceptions. We hear the lore in locker rooms and stadium parking lots across the Buckeye State. Or maybe it was a famous Baker that told us.
Regardless, this cocktail is pure liquid mojo. On and off the field. Use the best bourbon made in the state of Ohio of course – Cleveland Whiskey. Soon others will sense the source of your charismatic mojo, so have more grapefruit juice, honey and Cleveland Whiskey Bourbon on hand. Enough to make a Baker’s dozen or more cocktails.
Go CLE. We got this. Happy Tailgating.
