As a cocktail writer, all sorts of interesting — and not so interesting — story pitches and drink recipes come across my email. I ignore 98 percent of them. But something from “Southern Glazer’s” caught my eye and made me laugh out loud. Thus, I share with you the news: “Consumers refresh their wardrobes with the latest spring looks, they can also make sure their cocktails are on trend.” Dying to know what to drink with your new spring outfit? Fear not, Southern Glazer’s mixologists have paired “this year’s favorite spring cocktails with the hottest 2017 spring fashion trends, as identified by internationally acclaimed fashion consultant and creator of New York Fashion Week, Fern Mallis. These cocktail recipes will help consumers take Fern’s favorite looks straight from the runway to their kitchens and home bars.” We’ll drink to that (with a smirk on our faces).
