If you haven’t had a chance to catch up with the girls in a while, each of these mixed drinks makes a great excuse for an impromptu girl’s night in. Expand your horizons, treat yourself to a bottle of something special and enjoy a signature cocktail for your evening. Whether you choose a swanky suite or just the living room, each of these drinks will add elegance and fruity Summery freshness.
Which bottle to choose?

- X-Rated Fusion Liqueur is a sensuous blend of ultra-premium French vodka and rich blood oranges, mingling with mangos and passion fruit
