Typical Average Cocktail, Inspired by Ed Sheeran

A Typical Average Cocktail for a “typical average teen, if you know what I mean.” We went all the way back to the year 2005 when Ed Sheeran self-released his first EP, The Orange Room, for this cocktail inspo. The third track on the album was titled Typical Average. The flavors in this cocktail, the 4th in our 2023 Summer Concert Cocktail Series, might be slightly more recognizable than Sheeran’s preteen vocals. If you don’t believe us, dare to compare and give it a listen?
