Spring Fling: Cocktails!

Three Olives Vodka: Cocktails to Ring In the First Day of Spring

Toast to warmer weather with the first day of spring, March 20th. With another frigid winter coming to a close, its time to replace our hats and gloves with sunglasses and sandals, and put down our red wines and heavy winter lagers for lighter and brighter spring sippers.
