While I'd really enjoy sitting in a bustling brasserie on the Left Bank this evening, these French inspired cocktails add that Paris state of mind to any party. These delicious cocktails are really charming when presented with a note card on the bar explaining the name. Thank you Left Bank Restaurant.
