Citrus Fling

Spring has finally arrived! That means longer days filled with outdoor activities like sports, hiking and yard work. But my favorite spring activity comes at the end of a long day – relaxing with a cocktail while I watch the sunset from my front porch. If you don’t have a porch, this cocktail will taste just as good on your back patio, in your yard or wherever it is you go to relax.

While you can use whatever brands you choose, each one does have a unique flavor profile. For this drink, I recommend Choya Yuzu liqueur and The Botanist gin.
