Happy Monday! I was going to post this on Sunday. But I didn’t get a chance to, however who can complain about a cocktail on a Monday?I mean, sometimes a Monday requires a cocktail. Am I right? Hell yes.
Also, I realize that this is more of a summer time cocktail. But I love these flavors year ’round and on Friday when I was craving a fun cocktail and these flavors just spoke to me! I had to follow my heart…
Now, I know the strawberry doesn’t do anything… But this is just a clear cocktail and it needed a spark of color and I had strawberries. So if you don’t want to include it. It’s not actually a big deal. I’m also a fan of anything served with a lime wedge. I don’t know why, but if you toss a lime wedge with food or a drink, it makes my day.
Sometimes you just got to embrace the simple things in life and let yourself be happy with it. Be it a simple cocktail, a wedge of lime, a walk with your pooches or a dance party in your kitchen. Whatever it is. Do something this week that simply makes you happy.
Maybe make this drink while you’re at it… Cheers, friends!
