“In October, as we transition from summer to fall, the Smoke & Mirrors cocktail transitions from fruit-forward into a warming heat. Reminiscent of moving from the beaches to the fall fire pits,” said Bartender Anthony Guaetta. “Some may say that describing a cocktail is just ‘smoke and mirrors’ … The best way to find out if it’s true is to simply try it.”
