If Celebrities Were Cocktails

Toast to your favorite celebrities with these delicious drinks!

Posted on

I love it when cocktails are named after celebrities, but they usually don't taste very good. So I asked Bobby Hicks of the Milk & Honey speakeasy to come up with some classy drinks based on famous folks, and he definitely didn't disappoint.

Now you can drink in style and toast your favorite celebrities in the process. Make sure to stop by Milk & Honey at 30 E 23rd Street if you see something tasty. And make sure to follow Bobby on Twitter and Instagram!
