Everything Taylor Swift does ends up being iconic. Whether it’s casually dropping an album announcement after winning her record-breaking fourth ‘Album of the Year’ Grammy or making football fans mad just by being present in the field, you cannot escape her impact. So, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that her favourite cocktail du jour is going viral.
According to The Washington Post, Taylor was spotted at a restaurant in Kansas City on a girls’ night out where she was inseparable from her new favourite cocktail all night. The drink in question was a French Blonde.
