brigid.meyer.1: Please Check out Salt & Smoke and look for Nick Caminiti! One of the best creative cocktail designers I have ever met! I love to go in and give my bartender a challenge, so when I went in and gave Nick my order, I simply said I like sweet, fruit and vodca and he created the most appetizing drink :) please go check him out!! His own creations are amazing and so unique! But also so creative!!!
