Lets Get Together for Drinks
I’m not going to lie. Happy hour is the best. I don’t care if you drink alcohol or if you are sober. I love getting together with my people whether it’s at a bar, a restaurant, or for a group walk at a park. Community time is my favorite time. So much that it is a problem sometimes.
I am an extrovert that doesn’t realize their tired until it’s way too late and then I’m a mess for a whole week! I truly believe that gathering around a table brings people together. It’s the way I was raised and I love on people by making them food and pouring them wine.
One thing I’ve been very interested in over the past couple of years is really good mixed cocktails. I’m not 22 anymore and I realized that when I realized that mixing cocktails is a science.
I have family members that take mixing cocktails very seriously and I love it. This week and this post are all about making healthier and delicious cocktails that are approachable.
