Drink of the Day: Orange Buck

August 17, 2015 | By | Add a Comment

A good Monday morning to one and all!  Nothing like a fine summer morning, with the birds singing their joyful tune and a brisk breeze touching your face as you go out to feel the outdoors for the first time today.  This is going to be a great day!

Let’s start the week right by introducing a seasonal gin refresher that can be a nice reward for finishing the work day.  Who says you have to wait until Friday to treat yourself to a relaxer that will have you in the right frame of mind in no time.  Citrus and ginger work hand-in-hand in giving you a tasty beverage that goes well as a final course to a hearty meal.  It’s time to kick off the shoes and put your feet up.   You have accomplished everything you wanted to do today.  Now, let’s get in a little “ME” time!

Enjoy today!  Cheers!
