Signature Sips from the VFN Annual Forum

August 10, 2017

This year, at the VFN Annual Forum Dinner on August 6th, the Network turned 21! To celebrate, our Network spirit producers and bartenders teamed up to create custom cocktails for the evening featuring Vermont spirits and ingredients. The cocktails were a huge hit! And we wanted to share them with you to make at home. Pick up your favorite bottle of Vermont produced spirits and give these recipes a shake (or a stir).
