Shake up these new drinks for National Cocktail Day!

Celebrate National Cocktail Day, Wednesday, March 24, with Blue Shark Vodka!

We couldn’t be more thrilled the art of the craft cocktail is now mainstream. Industry leader and world famous mixologist Dale DeGroff started preaching about taking time to make really simple, yet inspirationally good cocktails decades ago. Today we celebrate the art of a good cocktail and the wonderful rhythm & ritual of making one.

So pull out your bartending kit and try out these three springtime drinks!


Want even more inspiration?
