How To Make 6 Signature Cocktails From Broadway Shows

Just because you can’t hit the latest Broadway show every night doesn’t mean you can’t drink like you are. Sweet Hospitality Group is the catering company behind the concessions at shows such as “A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder,” “Kinky Boots,” “Aladdin,” and “Jersey Boys.” The company shared with us the recipes for some of the cocktails it made from some of Broadway’s biggest shows. Open your liquor cabinet, put on some show tunes, and give a few of these a try.
