I love a big glass of orangeade on a warm spring day! Especially when it’s a homemade boozy version, like this one right here.

This week has been a particularly long week. The days have been going by so slowly and the nights have been filled with preparations for the new site, so I am utterly exhausted. I feel just like I did after traveling for 5 weeks straight, except it’s only been a week and a half of go go go go! I don’t think I’ve been so excited about it being a Friday in a realllllly long time. It’s to the point where I could start singing that “It’s Friday, Friday, Friday, oh!” song and not completely cringe at myself.

Probably not something I should admit out loud, but you all know I don’t have a filter with you. 🙂

This orangeade is the best reward for a long week of work. It is fresh, light and bright so you’re Friday night happy hour will feel even sunnier than you ever thought it could. This seriously tastes just like an orangeade, with just the right kick of gin at the end. Join me today after 5pm won’t you? We can kick back while the sun is still out (yay!), feet up and cocktail in hand breathing a citrus-packed sign of relief.
