Home is Where the Bar Is
Jul. 10th, 2020
Some say there is a cocktail for every occasion, football games, Valentine’s Day, birthday parties. Well, I’m here to tell you that pandemics are no exception. With quarantine still in full swing, and summer at its peak, we are all itching to grab a beer at Big Chill Surf Cantina or have a fun night out at the Starboard with friends, but instead, we are stuck at home. At Schell Brothers, we like to say that home is where the heart is, and lucky for us, it’s usually where the bar is too! So grab a glass and set yourself up behind the wet bar in your dining area or basement and take a look at some of our Schell employee’s favorite cocktail recipes:
