Behind the Bar: The Bitter Truth

WE’re lucky to be “Behind the Bar” for this week’s episode of Love After Lockup because things are tense and the truth is coming out! Cheryl stuns her mom with a bombshell about her felon fiancé, Vince learns the shocking truth about Amber, and that’s just the beginning! To prepare to see the drama go down, make yourself a glass of “The Bitter Truth”, a gin-based cocktail that packs a citrus punch.
