Yes, yes. I am the wine girl.

I love wine.

But I also love a good, strong cocktail.

My absolute favorite cocktail is a strong Cosmo Cocktail. I love the sweetness mixed with the acidity.

      I think one of these drinks equals three but of course we will make them for you.

    I’ll have to try this & holy crap does that look strong. I love how hardcore Rachel is. I need to meet her one day to see if I can remotely keep up.
