Piña Colada

Hypothetically speaking, if I drank both piña coladas (one for each hand) immediately after photographing them, is Garth Brooks to blame for my afternoon drunkenness? No? Alright, fair enough.

The Cranberry Screwdriver

It’s Friyay, y’all! And you know what that means; happy hour is almost upon us. Obviously, happy hour can be applied to any day of the week. Don’t feel bad if, like me, you’ve been hitting patio season hard lately. This being said, there’s something about that first end-of-the-work-week drink that somehow tastes better. It’s […]
