Drink of the Day: Torridora

September 8, 2014 | By | Add a Comment

Good Monday morning, everyone!  Hope your weekend was fun and full of exciting things.  Now, it is back to the grindstone, earning our living and bringing home the bacon.  This is why we live for the weekends.  Just keep in mind that the reason our off the clock hours seem so sweet is due to the workweek.  Without putting in our time making a paycheck, the weekend would just be other days on the calender, and it surely wouldn’t be so sweet.  So look at Monday as a great start at building up to another wonderful couple days off in the next five days; recognizing that the harder you work the more pleasant those days will be.

So, to kick off the beginning of this week, here is an interesting cream cocktail that you may want to sit on until the end of the week to enjoy.  Just another nice relaxer to appreciate while looking back and seeing all the things you have accomplished.  Just remember, you enjoy life a lot better when you work to live and not live to work.

Wishing you a pleasant and stress free week.  Cheers!
