In a new series, we talk content and cocktails (or mocktails)—giving you everything you need to set the mood. Every week, we'll give you our recommended pairings for an intimate evening—before, during, and after. The rest is up to you.
With the weekdays and weekends blending into one, it's important to carve out some time for rest and relaxation. Our idea of the perfect night is a tub (for one or two). Light a candle and pour yourself a drink. This week's simple, fool-proof recipe comes straight from Robby, sales director, and longtime beverage expert, at the Los Angeles-based spirit brand, AMASS. Be sure to try a pared-down non-alcoholic version.
Before, something bubbly.
For some you-time, put some of our soak in your bathtub and sip a champagne cocktail from our friends at AMASS.
