Thanks! There's a lot more to cocktails than this, but these are all easy to make and fun to drink. :)

I know I checked your Pinterest and I was overwhelmed :D

Oh, I meant things involving layering, size of ice, and all sorts of cool bartender techniques. And possibly drinks that aren't desserts/booze candy. :P
