Inspiration: “A salute is a gesture of respect or polite recognition, especially one made to or by a person when arriving or departing. Every day, everywhere on this planet, there are people whose amazing achievements go unnoticed. This cocktail is my tribute to them all, so they in turn can raise a glass in salute of those in their world who deserve celebration.”
