Medal-Worthy Cocktails

Watching some of the best athletes in the world is admirable, but doing it with a gold-medal worthy drink in hand makes the games even more enjoyable. The Olympics don’t come around every day, or even every year, so acknowledging the event by creating Olympic cocktails that show patriotism and a love of all things Olympics is a must. As athletes prepare for their events, prepare your cocktail menu by creating cocktails that are a testament to your establishment's greatness.
