Bodega Cocktail Challenge

THE BODEGA COCKTAIL CHALLENGE: Make a cocktail out of mini bottles of booze and ingredients purchased from a bodega. This game was inspired by Broke-Ass Stuart 's reportage for our friends at The Bold Italic on bodegas in San Francisco packaging ingredients for DIY cocktails. Not to be outdone by California, we thought we'd try our hand at some bodega mixology. The results were… interesting.
