Damn The Weather cocktail feature

 

If you’ve been paying attention to the weather lately, you’ve probably heard about hurricane Irma. It’s been wreaking havoc on the Caribbean, and now has its evil intentions set on the Florida Keys and Miami, with a projected path to affect the entire state of Florida. This is not a storm to be taken lightly — property and human life are now in imminent peril. Many Tampa Bay residents have fled for safer grounds, while many more will choose to hunker down and ride the storm out. METRO is not encouraging it’s readers to ‘celebrate’ this weather event, merely to incorporate a few good cocktail recipes into the otherwise stressful storm preparation.
