There is plenty to toast this weekend. Tomorrow is the first day of summer and (here in the US) it’s also Father’s Day.

If you are looking to make a different drink to celebrate, why not give a cheerful Red Shoe Diary Cocktail a try. The tart blood orange gets balanced by a sweet honey syrup. Campari gives a hint of bitterness while the Pisco adds a floral note.

Love at first listen.

‘Talk It Out’ is from Mobile, AL band Eleanor’s debut album “The Canyon”. Cocktails are in order for those tough conversations.

Check out Eleanor on Bandcamp where you can buy their music.

Cheers!
