Happy Hour Friday: Royal Orchid
Happy THREE DAY WEEKEND! WooHooo! It’s finally here: Memorial Day weekend. School is out for summer (well, it is here, anyway); bbq grills are being uncovered as I type; and preparations for road trips, lake trips, boat trips, pool parties, backyard bbqs (or whatever your flavor) are in full frenetic swing.
Summer. Our official kick-off. Here. Right now. :D
My cocktail today has really nothing to do with this holiday weekend. I tried to think of something patriotic. Something red, white, and blue. Or something that says “thank you” to the many who have sacrificed for my country and my freedom. But I came up with nothing.
So instead I’m offering this beautiful, cool, and refreshing summertime drink.
3/4 oz St Germaine
1/2 oz gin
1/2 oz gold rum
1/2 fresh lime juice
1 oz guava nectar (or papaya juice)
Combine all ingredients in shaker with ice. Shake vigorously. Strain into tall glass over ice. Garnish with fresh lime wedges.
May your weekend be filled with good friends, wonderful family, delicious food and plenty of thankfulness. :)
I will be spending some of my time pool side with these drinks.
Happy Friday, Y’all!
It’s Link Up TIME!
