SPRINGTIME SIPS

SPRINGTIME SIPS

It's finally springtime, the perfect time of year that calls for fewer layers and chilled drinks! Spring cocktails are meant to celebrate the turning of the season, mimicking the color that's finally budding throughout the South.

Our featured Springtime Sip is the Blackberry Smash, a spring drink that's unabashedly cheery and bright, made with fresh produce and artisanal ingredients, which you can pick up at Lucy's Market. Serve it up in our punchy pitchers and glasses.
