Put on your walking shoes for the Redlands Signature Drinks Tour, where you can hit the hot bars in Redlands and taste their signature cocktails. These offerings are diverse, so there’s something for everybody.

Note: For the purpose of this story, each bar knew I was visiting and why. They did not charge for the drinks, which I took only a few sips and a photo of — except at Citrone, where I finished my drinks and got a ride home.

Have fun and be safe (but not in that order)!
