Get ready to paint the town PURPLE with us AGAIN! Eureka Heights is back with their wonderful summer libation, just in time for Pride! It’s fabulous and unique, just like you….it’s LAVENDER BUNNY.
The name alone makes you want to try it, but you won’t regret it once you do! With its stunning purple hue, it is just as fun to look at as it is to drink!
