Creative Cocktails

There’s a myriad of cocktails out there, some of which are off the charts good. While traveling the world, it’s interesting to try what the local bars conjur up. Here’s one that caught my eye, the Anythm Spirit at Gray’s in Franklin, Tennessee, USA.

It’s a hangout, the local pub Caribbean style. The Essoville Rumshop is one of my favorites in Aruba. The drinks are cold and I usually chat with my friends or someone new. Here’s my video visit:

As you can see, it’s not complicated. Cash money on the countertop and plenty of shade awaits.
