There’s nothing quite like sipping on your favorite beverage while relaxing and unwinding at the end of a long day in a hot bath. This is why we reached out to our friends Joni and Jennelle of Mint and Mirth, the world’s best traveling bartenders based out of Portland, Oregon, to do a bath time+cocktail collaboration during our BEING Bath Month.
This is the second cocktail in our three-part bath-and-cocktail pairing collaboration series (you can read more about these ladies and see the Float Salt Bath + Afternoon in Eden here), and to encourage you to indulge in a bath+cocktail ritual of your own, we’re giving away all three bath products over on our Instagram page!
