This drink is all about lemon and orange. If you use Hendrick's gin and a silver tequila, those notes will be even … [Read more...]

Toro

Toro drink recipe - spiced rum, vodka, sour mix

The Toro cocktail features spiced rum and sweet and sour mix with vodka for some extra kick. The blend of spices and tangy flavors is fairly unusual.
