There’s no better way to celebrate an anniversary than to sip on a signature cocktail, or at least we at Flavors think so. Inspired by the ruby, the gemstone that represents the 15th anniversary, and a hefty shot of the exquisite Torres Magdala Orange liquor, we’ve come up with the perfect way to commemorate our own 15 year anniversary, The Ruby 15. It’s sweet, tart and refreshing. We’re raising a glass or two to celebrate. Won’t you joins us?
