SUPER BOWL - New York Cocktail - GO GIANTS!

Happy Thursday and welcome to Ladies Night at The Slow Roasted Italian.  In honor of the New York Giants playing in the Super Bowl this Sunday, we are serving a New York Cocktail!  Go GIANTS!!!

Get a taste of the Big Apple right from your living room with this whiskey and lemon cocktail.  The New York Cocktail is thick and sweet, a perfect pairing with fruit and chocolate.  Mix this cocktail with a premium Canadian whiskey for the most flavorful drink.  Premium Canadian whiskey is a light blended whiskey that's not too sweet, nor too robust.

Enjoy the game!!!
