Tweet- Treat Yo Self _ Brown

Parks and Recreation’s Donna and Tom knew what they were doing when inventing one of the best days of the year, Treat Yo Self Day. A day where you can splurge on that cashmere sweater you had your eye on for some time, or that massage you’ve been wanting to book for the longest.

After sealing your sweet guilt-free deals for the day, what better way to settle in than with one or two luxurious Ketel One Cocktails. Downtown has just the cocktail recipes in mind, and in case you’d like to indulge in some dessert Leslie Knope-style, Ketel One Vodka partnered with Prohibition Bakery in New York City to create an exclusive cupcake recipe for each Ketel One Vodka cocktail featured below.
