Cheers to Spring! It's been a long and brutal winter in most parts of the country, but the 1st day of spring is finally here, and there's no better way to celebrate than with your favorite cocktail.
The Cove Trattoria, a contemporary family-owned and operated Italian restaurant in Scottsdale is celebrating the season with their Italian Sangria, a robust blend of alcohol and fruit juice garnished with citrus.
If you can't make it into the Cove to try this specialty cocktail, mix up a large batch at home,
invite some friends over and enjoy the weather while you can....pretty soon it will be too HOT!

.75 oz Cointreau
.5 oz Simple Syrup
