There’s a few days left to enter my giveaway! Who doesn’t love coffee and free stuff? You’ve got to be crazy not to like one of the two. Enter through the link here!

So this is the perfect drink for the spring and summertime… orrrrrr for pretending that it is spring or summertime (considering it snowed… yeah SNOWED… this morning in Chicago… pretending is the best you’ll get)

For those of you who are like my mom (hi mom), and aren’t fans of gin, this could easily be made with vodka. I’m not sure if I would venture in with flavored vodkas like strawberry or cucumber, the flavors of the fresh cucumber and strawberries do come out very nicely. It may be too overpowering.

Aside from flavor, look at the nice color!!! How fun is that for the summertime!!! IMG_4437

  • ok... you guys... kombucha margaritas!!! I combined two of my favorite things (kombucha + tequila, duh) for #nationalmargaritaday and the result was this guava jalapeño margarita and possibly one of the best margs I’ve ever made.
