The next destination of our Tracks on the Rocks summer tour is scenic, picture-perfect Greece.
What we wouldn’t give to be basking in the Greek islands’ otherworldly natural beauty, just chilling on a boat off their pristine shores surrounded by crystal clear blue waters…
That’s the stuff dreams are made of right there. The next best thing are these deliciously refreshing Greek cocktails, accompanied by some timeless local classics.
