Welcome Spring with These Seasonal Cocktails in Baltimore

by Jennifer Waldera on Apr 10, 2018 in Roundups

From fruits to elderflower, and teas to slushies, there’s no shortage of sips available around the city that celebrate spring.
 
This simple spot in Hampden is shaking up a smoky cocktail for spring in addition to pouring its slushy-style white wine version of Frose. (911 W 36th St; 443-961-8515)
