Cocktail Inspiration:

Cecil’s Way is inspired by my late grandfather, Cecil Estep. When I was a child he would take me on walks around his property in the country and we’d often go to his pear tree and he’d let me pick pears…which made me feel pretty big as a little guy! It’s a very special memory for me and one I think of often. I’m honored to present this cocktail to you all and I think he would be proud.
