Let us toast National Happy Hour Day this November 12th with a #TokiCapri #Cocktail!
The #TokiCapri combines the old school fun of a “capri sun” style drink with adult flavors. I love the balance; Toki lends a light touch of smoke, Aperol with a whisper of bitter, Yuzu and lemon adds an exotic citrus pop and spiced syrup adds a touch of sweet – resulting in a well-balanced cocktail with many delicious layers of flavor.
Served in a bag – it’s fun for single service, or large functions….think wedding or parties. The band around the bag is also perfect to customize with a hashtag or special branded message.
Enjoy! – Kathy Casey
