Recently, a few of us from Food & Beverage were on hand at the John Varvatos’ store in San Francisco, to celebrate the launch of the Limited Edition John Varvatos Bottle Stopper for Patrón Añejo. We enjoyed special cocktails mixed-up for the special occasion. We thought we’d share those recipes with you. Cheers!
