Boy it’s hot and humid here in Louisiana. Every day I count my blessings for this air conditioned house!
After coming off of a long vacation, it’s been an especially exhausting week. We’ve been registering the kids for their activities, doing heaps of laundry and trying to get organized again for the new school year (and in this small town that means a lot of online shopping!). I am not too exciting about getting back into the school routine, although it always end up being the right time.
I am not going to lie. I miss vacation drinking a little. There is something different about it because you are in total relaxation mode. No worries, no cares, no “to-do lists” waiting.
But there is no reason we can’t cool off and relax with a fun and fruity cocktail at home. I think it’s really the only time of year that I have the energy to make fun drinks, Although I am a sucker for a good ol’ margarita, these beverages using fresh blackberries sound delightful.
Black berries and lime- that sounds like the perfect match!
