Tipsy Palmer

Cocktail Tipsy PalmerCalling all bourbon lovers, golf fanatics, sports fans everywhere. This one’s for you folks. Football tailgates, football home parties, golf tournaments, hell baseball playoffs and World Series (go Sox, in honor of Marc!). This is your drink, trust me. Again, from Curtis Stone, dang handsome chef that he is. His friend Steven took a detour in spiking the traditional Arnold Palmer and created this concoction. As always, sip with care! PtotheS! This post is in honor of my dear Cat and Drew who were married this past weekend … not because they served this drink, but because I found this napkin today from a previous party this summer! Take a gander at this amazing bride and groom and their fun-loving attendants! Rock on people!
