Happy Hour @ 1102

Zodiac Birthday Cocktail

Yesterday, was my birthday.  So today’s Happy Hour Drink, is a celebration of my day.  I have always been a big fan of the Zodiac, so when I found this cocktail through “In the Spirit”, I thought it was quite an appropriate theme for this week’s Happy Hour.

CAPRICORN  – The GOAT  ( December 21 – January 20)
