Drink of the Day: Peach Slider

August 28, 2015 | By | Add a Comment

Let’s kick off the weekend by introducing a tasty cream beverage.  We are getting into the last weekend of August, meaning we are just around the corner for many harvests.  This peach-flavored treat is perfect for the turn of the seasons.  Hell, this full-of-flavor cocktail is perfect anytime.  You will see what I mean after your first sip.

A relaxer to take the stress off; a nice kick-off to the weekend.  A beverage to enjoy after your bountiful dinner.  You may find yourself so relaxed that you might want to think about taking the night off from getting together with friends and just enjoy some of your favorite music while reclining in the den.  Time to turn the ringer off on the phone.  Tonight, it’s “me” time!

Enjoy your weekend, compadres.  Cheers!
