Welcome to another Friday Cocktail. As the weekend approaches, there's nothing quite like the anticipation of Friday evening and the promise of relaxation. What better way to kickstart your weekend than with a delightful Americano cocktail?

So, raise your glass and toast to the weekend with this enticing, low-ABV classic. Cheers to good times and even better cocktails!
