We’ve all been going a mile a minute and have been fighting off sickness, (cold season, what?!) so what better way to cut loose and boost your immunity than a tequila ginger infused cocktail?! Perfect logic to me! I know, I know… not sure it’s FDA approved to cure you, but let’s all just go with it…
I love being busy, but sometimes I just feel like I take too much on and am just barely keeping my head above water. It’s like they say, “Be like a duck. Calm on the surface, but paddling like the dickens underneath.” – Michael Caine (I find this especially fitting for me since I am a duck. No really… I went to the University of Oregon. Go Ducks!)
Now that it’s Friday, you bet your bottom dollar I’m going to indulge in some happy hour… Cheers to the weekend! #TGIF
How cute is GINGER as a garnish?! This one sort of looked like the state of California!
