summer mockatils.

Well here we go again… Another sober summer… And another season for mixing up a mean cocktail instead of a margarita. The last time around I was able to work with Lupo Verde on their recommendations for some yummy cocktails and this time I’m giving you a few EC Specials. Full disclosure when I am pregnant I actually don’t even crave alcohol very much and don’t even usually need a cocktail unless I am at the beach or an event with friends.
