Hi everyone! Kevin was invited to Camp Aramoni #camparamoni the other week to taste test one of Chef Cleetus signature cocktails. Kevin was lucky enough to enjoy Chef Cleetus' Red Snapper. Basically it's a Bloody mary made with gin. The gin was made locally and the mix was Chef Cleetus' own, the Cleetus Heatus! Check out the video below!
