Happy Thursday Wilders! I decided to bring this post out on a Thursday so that if a trip to the store needs to happen before the weekend you’ll have your list in order wouldn’t want you to head into Memorial Day weekend with out a summer beverage in hand!

There are few things I love more than a good round of cool drinks on a hot summer day. A roommate once said that my cooking was “earthy.” I like fresh in season ingredients, fruits, vegetables, herbs all garden fresh and when I mix a cocktail I like it to be every bit as ‘earthy’ as my cooking. Here’s a collection of a few I’m loving right now and along with the liquor (cause we wouldn’t wanna miss out on that) these cocktails combine fresh fruits vegetables and herbs for a refreshing summer beverage. It’s always happy hour somewhere, and I like to make sure it’s always where I am. Cheers!
