Drink of the Day: Free Silver

May 3, 2015 | By | Add a Comment

Good morning and a Sunday Funday to you all!  A beautiful day is in the forcast for us in my neck of the woods.  A great relaxing day on the patio is in store, with some springtime grilling and cold beverages.  Maybe, just maybe, some yardwork will get done…..but, there is always tomorrow!

I have an interesting one for you today.  One that combines some dark rum and gin, then is complemented with citrus and milk.  A very surprisingly refreshing and relaxing beverage that would bode well after firing up the tiki torches and resting in your back yard at the end of the day, looking back at your daytime accomplishments.  A good night’s sleep will surely be in order after sipping on a couple of these.

Have a great day, everybody.  A perfect “me” day for those who have had an exhausting week.  Time to take some time to capture your thoughts and refuel before another week at the office.

Cheers!
