Thursday are hard. The week has dragged on and it’s almost the weekend, but you still have that one last day to work. And summer vacation is not coming fast enough. I’ve been turning the last few Thursday into cocktail nights. Previously I have made the delicious Cake Martinis, but they are a little strong, and I wanted something more summery.
There is a liquor and wine store right next to the nail salon across the street. It’s kind of a bad combo, yet it is an awesome routine! Sit for a nice relaxing mani/pedi and then pick up some booze and head on home. On top of everything else, it has been raining for days and days here in Brooklyn. This Thursday required a drink, some food delivery, and a movie on the couch!
This cockail is light and refreshing, like a strawberry lemonade with a kick! The Strawberry Sparkler is similar to a light sangria. The cocktails were fun to drink and very enjoyable!
