Enjoying the last days of Spring? In celebrating a new season fast approaching, I decided to invite some friends over for drinks and spiced it up with this great concoction. While looking online for a tasty recipe, I noticed how elaborate and time-consuming the recipes were so I came up with my own. Making a cocktail doesn’t have to be a daunting task — no muddling jalapeños  or making pineapple juice from fresh pineapples (just visit your local Whole Foods or Arden’s Garden)!! Spending time with friends and enjoying their company should be the focus!
