Whiskey Bean Cocktail Recipe

DIY Projects

I don’t know about you, but I certainly have my afternoon mapped out after taking a peek at this DIY Whiskey Bean Cocktail put together by Shindig Fancy and Lavender & Twine for today’s styled shoot. Brown sugar, chocolate mint, cream soda, vanilla bean, and some good ol’ whiskey – pure deliciousness in a glass. Let’s get started!
