“Winter Sunrise” Cocktail Recipes

H-app-yHour_image_all-logos-and-phone-with-wordsIn February and March 2015, we held a series of “H-app-y Hours” to celebrate the launch of The SunriseGuide Mobile Edition. Every party was at a different location, and we asked each venue to create a signature cocktail for the event called “Winter Sunrise.” Each venue created its own unique interpretation of the drink…and this is what all the bartenders came up with!

In a narrow/high ball glass, stir together the rum, Cointreau, bitters, lime juice, blood orange and nutmeg.
