Cocktail Friday - Southern Summers

July 29, 2016
Author: Kelly Elarbee
It is Cocktail Friday at The Specialist Works US and today we would like to celebrate local success. Brian Hart Hoffman, chief creative officer at our media partner Hoffman Media, recently had his cocktail recipe book The Coupe featured in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. We were very glad to see our client, Expressionery, have their custom stamp design featured with the outbound press kit.

This collection of vintage cocktails, best enjoyed in a coupe, is charmingly creative. The creations bring us back to summer afternoons spent in our garden watching the sun set over the hills of Georgia. In honor of this memory, we would like to highlight a cocktail from the book conceived by Brian himself, the Alabama Summer. See the recipe below. Cheers! #thecoupelife

3 oz. fresh watermelon juice
1.5 oz Tito's Handmade Vodka
.5 - .75 oz Campari
.5 oz fresh lime ljuice
