Why We Like It

If you’re coming down from March Madness, but need a little something to get you through Monday’s championship game, rally with the Full Court Press. This refreshing citrusy cocktail is a play on a vodka press—a frankly boring concoction. While some believe the origin of the press is that a bartender needed only pour the booze, then press a button on the soda gun to create a cocktail, it's actually just a modern Presbyterian cocktail. Pretty simple. For this one, the pressing comes in the form of manual juicing. And because the Full Court Press is packed with Vitamin C, you can file it under “defensive day drinking for your immune system.”
