Springtime refreshments are blooming just like the flowers and nothing is more refreshing than a signature cocktail whipped up by my favorite bartender Emily from Gatsby’s Landing in Roslyn. Spring is a time to make your taste buds come alive and these five heady concoctions have a decided fresh spring spirit.
