Get Your Vitamin C

Tommy Bahama Be My ClementineThis winter has been brutal and along with it comes a horrible cold and flu season, so Tommy Bahama has concocted a cocktail to make sure you get your Vitamin C.

Inspired by the sweet and juicy little Clementine oranges that are fresh off the branches this time of year, Tommy Bahama introduces the “Be My Clementine.” This sweet sipper is mixed with fresh, muddled Clementines, Grey Goose® L’Orange, Cointreau, sparkling wine, and fresh lemon juice for a zesty and citrusy libation that tastes just-plucked-from-the-tree fresh.

Try it, and as Tommy Bahama says, “Make Life One Long Weekend™.”
