Weekends are great. A lot of us have the day off, you can sleep in and you get to enjoy the best meal of the week – brunch! There’s nothing like a lazy Saturday or Sunday morning to catch up with friends and enjoy a relaxed meal that can last for hours.

Stove-Top Success with Vespertino Tequila Cream Liqueur

Brand owner Jeff Johnson has long had a penchant for the rich, decadent desserts of Mexico. It was this sweet tooth that spurred the inspiration for his newest offering, Vespertino Tequila Cream Liqueur (SRP $21.99). “For the first iteration on my stove top, I bought Mexican ground cinnamon, raw brown sugar and experimented,” says Johnson. Jeff bottled his first batch of Vespertino after two years of experimentation, and it’s now ready for the public. “We’re launching in ten states immediately,” he says, with plans to grow his distribution on the East Coast before branching out west. Packaged in a matte-painted glass bottle, Vespertino’s blue-and-yellow logo [...]
