From Boston Bartenders with Love!

10 Oct

Fall is here. Time to soak in the last hours of sunshine and foliage. Time to prepare ourselves for the darkness of winter ahead. If you are like me, a good fall cocktail can ease the pain. Check out these great fall cocktails with rum from two local Boston bartenders. I personally love Eastern Standard and will be making my way there soon to try this deliciousness.
