3 Lord of the ring inspired cocktail

To celebrate Tolkien Reading day we have created 3 inspired cocktails form this universe. March 25 is the day we celebrate Sauron’s defeat in the Lord of the rings trilogy.

One of my favourite books and movies are in the form of this trilogy. I wanted to create something special to celebrate them so let’s get to it.
