May is a great month for dog lovers – it’s warm enough to enjoy being outside with your pooch, but not yet the dog days of summer – so it seemed like the perfect month to feature Palimpsest's new collection Off Leash by Dorothy Mahoney. In researching cocktails for this month’s column, I discovered that dog lovers also love drinks – there is a veritable pack of dog-themed cocktails to enjoy. I’ve included a couple below, but I encourage you to check this list for more breeds to imbibe.
