Spring/Autumn Essentials: Sparkling Sour Cocktail This to me is a refreshing cocktail that goes wonderfully with the Spring and Autumn seasons.

While Summer may be still with us, I will be serving these out by the pond tonight… Okay, I will admit it, I am trying to rush Autumn… 38 days and counting.

A great refreshing drink with bitters and sours; it goes great with a cool evening out by the pond under the stars with a small fire going.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.
