Cocktail Name: ROYGBIV
Price: $15 ($5 donation)
Description: This cocktail represents the colours of the LGBT flag, also a symbol of peace. I tried my hardest to incorporate all these colours into the recipe. What I didn’t want was a dark purple finished product, so I made a beautiful bright blue cocktail, a fun, flamboyant, and of course tasty beverage.
