What a beautiful cocktail to welcome spring – it has a lovely flavour, and is so refreshing!
It certainly is a great cocktail for spring and summer, thanks Alex!
This looks like my kindof cocktail!! Love sitting and sipping on a thirst quenching drink like this, although I admit, I drink them TOO quickly. Love the canape ideas as well.
Thank you Adrianne! Yes, that is the only downside to this drink, it goes down far too quickly, especially on a hot day!
