Last weekend we had Emma Connolly, Head Bartender at Grassona’s Restaurant -1704 Beacon St., in the store for a cocktail demo and tasting that showed our customers how delicious cocktails made with oil and vinegar can be. We hope you will try the cocktail recipes below and share your photos with us!
