For the girl who has everything, and a mother and aunt who invent and blog about drink recipes, Acacia, in celebration of her birthday, asked us to create a birthday cocktail for her. Her only criteria was that it be exotic.
Named for the acacia tree commonly seen in silhouette on the Serengeti, something African was in order. Most pictures from Africa feature the African sunset, so we found this version both exotic and colorful. Happy Birthday, Acacia, and Cheers!
