It's 5 O'Clock Somewhere

Summer will be here before you know it. So that means, we can get back to backyard gatherings and evening soirees, with family and friends. And, we cannot wait! Preparing pretty drinks are impressive to your guests. Show off your skills and creativity with this lovely Cucumber-Rose Gin Spritz cocktail. It's a classic combination of gin, lemon, and club soda gets a refreshing twist with cucumber, basil, and black cardamom infused syrup. Dried rose petals add a subtle floral flavor and act as a beautiful garnish.

Cheers to the weekend, a piece of furniture that took a year to get delivered, being outdoors again, doing what we enjoy, etc. There is always something to celebrate these days. We are not taking a single thing for granted. Let us celebrate "just because" we deserve it!

What are you celebrating today?
