We aren't certified in mixology, and our drink choice is typically of the minimal variety, but we decided it was time to step it up a notch. Meet Elliot Clark, a top cocktail and spirits influencer and the face behind Apartment Bartender. We asked Elliot to put together a few drinks (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) for you to make at home this weekend. So grab your bar cart (or head to your cupboard) and let's get started.
