HAPPY HOUR: Cucumber Refresher

Today David and I are venturing to Columbus to help our friend move apartments. I have a feeling after a long day of lifting and moving (on David’s part) and a long day delegating and directing (of course on my part) we will be in need of a cold drink. Here is a great drink recipe that is refreshing and full of Spring! Enjoy!

HAPPY HOUR: Southern Belle Cocktail

Now that I have officially taken up residence in the south for the next four months I decided to feature a Southern Belle cocktail in honor of needing a drink after my first official day back at my internship!
