A signature Cocktail Designed by New York Mixology company The Cocktail Architect. A crystal coupe glass filled with a passionfruit cocktail which was created for a cocktail class. Bar spoon on the table is provided in the cocktail kit they provide. Garnish is a dehydrated lime wheel.

Our virtual cocktail team building event was fantastic and the drinks were delicious.
The host's dynamic and personality helped keep the event lively, with everyone laughing and engaged.
