Happy Friday, everyone! 

When we started to plan out what we would focus on for this week’s liquor spotlight we initially dismissed Luxardo simply because we assumed we had already covered it in the past. When we discovered upon further investigation that no, we had NOT ever covered the liqueur in-depth we were both shocked and appalled — and we knew that this slight had to be rectified immediately.

This startling revelation has prompted us to write this article, as a general reminder to all of our readers out there who we love so much:

P2

Happy Friday, everyone!

Since our TBT classic cocktail this week (The Seelbach Cocktail!) included the distinctive and delicious Peychaud’s bitters, we decided to focus our liquor spotlight on that little bottle of magic, since we have found that outside of New Orleans many people are unaware of the brand, the flavor, and the history.
