TGIF! It’s been a long week, hell really its been a long month. We’re all settled in our new place and believe it or not I haven’t had a drink in weeks. To make matters worse my annual trip back to Tallahassee for my alma maters homecoming didnt happen because I had to be an adult and prioritize my weekend for grownup stuff 🙁 so yea I’m in need of a FEW drinks. Luckily some of our friends and sponsors reached out and let us know today was a Holiday (as if Friday isn’t ALWAYS a holiday?) It’s National Liqueur day, and that’s plenty of reason for my to grab a glass and relax. Here are a few recipe suggestions to help you celebrate today and hopefully all weekend long.
