Cinq a Sept

Virgo Party Cinq à Sept Friday...


September is a special month for us! It officially marked the month of celebration for our Birthdays. We wanted to celebrate with you all, by throwing an "Sapphire Party." Blue is not only our favorite color, but its our birthstone.  We created special cocktails to commemorate Virgo month, and would love for you to try.  I have a peach and ginger passion, while Jamal on the other hand loves citrus. Two different taste, two fabulous cocktails, and two lives to celebrate.
