Must-Try Cocktail: The Lumière

For me, every season seems to have a cocktail theme. There’s typically one drink that becomes my go-to favorite drink to shake up at home, then gets added to the regular rotation. This Spring and Summer, the Lumiere has become the winner! It’s less sweet than it sounds, and that citrus kick feels like vacation. The green chartreuse is a bit of an investment, but anything with chartreuse just tastes better…. I challenge you to host an intimate cocktail party with a couple of friends and mix this drink up. You’ll be a hit!
