Opening Day Cocktails

Opening Day Cocktails

Immediately after my alma mater, Syracuse, got knocked out of the NCAA tournament, my friends started offering condolences. But I was OK with it, because I’m a Yankee’s fan and I took comfort in knowing that opening day was less than two weeks away. No matter what your favorite team, there’s nothing like a cocktail to celebrate the sport of baseball. Here are two, courtesy of Ketel One.
