Alexis is getting ready for her first race in Ennis this weekend and what better way to prepare than with with cocktails…tasty cocktails from Patron and their sister vodka, Ultimat.  FYI…doctor the name up a bit and you have great football cocktails as well…or movie cocktails…or Saturday afternoon cocktails.
