Steve Livigni's Cachaca Recipe

It'll cure what ails ya

serenity now!

Normally, you’d be like, “TGIF.” But since it’s the dreaded Friday the 13th, you’re more like, “F this.”

Figuring you could use a stiff drink, we tapped master mixologist Steve Livigni (Pour Vous, Harvard & Stone, the new Plan Check) to create a cocktail designed to remedy all strains of bad day-itis.

Take several and (don’t) call us in the morning.
