Thanks to everyone who stopped by the Local for Love Event at Poor Little Rich Girl last night! The event was sponsored by Somerville Local First and featured treats from Taza Chocolate, Ball Square Fine Wines & Liquors, Narragansett beer, and a few fun cocktails poured by the ladies of LUPEC Boston.
Our table was a popular one, but whose isn’t when you’re handing out free hooch? For those of you who are interested in sampling some of the delicious libations we poured last night at home, recipes are below. Two of them even feature vodka*** a base spirit we rarely mix with!
