Hello and welcome to another summer Friday. Up here in the Northeast it is finally starting to get warmer and feel more seasonal. Like last week's spritzer, I wanted to focus on a lighter, easily drinkable cocktail. Mrs. Sharkbait and I are still on our self imposed quarantine, so the

Hello once again and a happy Friday to my fellow shut ins. Hopefully you're all practicing good social distancing and keeping inside, except for essentials.
