T.G.I.F!!!

Let’s do something unique and tasty today to get the weekend started the right way.  An easy to make citrus-enhanced vodka beverage that will only take you about a minute to make.  You won’t have to spend a lot of time to start enjoying and satisfying your thirst after a week’s worth of work.

Treat yourself and enjoy this beverage while mingling with friends.  The green hue will start the conversation and get other people interested in what you’re imbibing on due to this unique hue.  Be sure to share in the enjoyment by giving them the opportunity to see that the flavor even overrides its beauty.

Hope your weekend is filled with fun and laughter.  Be safe and relax!  You deserve it.

Cheers!

    Hmm, too bad that there’s no Aloe Vera at all in it. Better rename that drink to Leprechaun or something…
