Get Creative with Spring + Easter Cocktails: Sips for Weekend Celebrations!
Something about springtime screams “refresh,” and though you’re probably already planning on updating your wardrobe and getting into some spring cleaning, it’s also the perfect time to clean up your drinks.
Warmer weather and more sunlight (and prep for bathing suit season) calls for a light and refreshing drink. This is the time when many people switch to clear spirits with a clean taste. For an elevated experience, try elit by Stoli, which is a flawless vodka achieved through precision from grain to glass.
What’s special about elit by Stoli is the taste. The process behind the spirit backs it up: after being filtered through charcoal and quartz sand, elit is freeze-filtered at exactly -18° C, a process that uses advanced technology to remove the last molecules of imperfection.
We all want great cocktails and sips for holidays and our casual spring to summer weekends. Why not these two fabulous drinks?

For those seeking a lighter cocktail, here are two featuring wine as the main spirit, with recipes courtesy of California Fruit Wine!
What are California Fruit Wines?
The wines are light, refreshing, fruit-forward and surprisingly not sweet. The secret is in California Fruit Wine’s commitment to using only top quality fruit and a respect for a time-honored tradition.
Using fruits other than grapes to make enjoyable wines that are surprisingly not sweet and pleasantly all natural, there is a pleasing — and abundant– variety of enjoyable fruits to be made into wine. The brand skillfully craft the wines to fully realize the potential of the fruits without adding any artificial flavors or coloring. They take pride in their commitment to pure, natural products.
