It has been FAR too long since I’ve posted a cocktail post. I know, I’m disappointed in me, too 🙂 It’s not like I haven’t been drinking them! But this recipe required a little bit of testing. And by testing, I mean that I wanted to drink lots and lots of watermelon cocktails. But also […]
Happy almost New Year, everyone! Dave and I are back in Portland after almost a week in my hometown of Wichita, Kansas (where, I will have you know, I found a speakeasy! My people! Check out The Dockum if you are in town, I recommend El Mayor Presidente — rum, duh). And while I have […]
