Inspired by one of my guilty television pleasures, ABC's Once Upon A Time, my Twisted Fairytale Cocktail is a wizardous blend of fresh strawberries, white rum, blood oranges and soda. I took out my magical cocktail wand and conjured up a spell for a tall, sparkling elixir that will give you a happy ending no matter what spells Rumplestiltskin or any wicked witch conjure up.
It's a happy hour happy ending in a glass!
