3 Earth day Cocktails

We want to celebrate Earth day with some cocktails that are vegan, no waste and delicious!

Earth day is celebrated on the 22 of April, first celebrated in 1970 and it is held to demonstrate support for environmental protection.

Let’s invest in our planet with some tasty cocktails. Just to make sure we are waste free we will base this cocktail on maximum 4 ingredients that can either be reused or composted.

If you feel overwhelmed by the techniques or terms that we are using check out the free course on bartending.
