Folks, it’s Friday, and I can tell you need a drink. I’m not projecting, I’m not!

I was at Austin Food & Wine last weekend and went to a delicious dinner hosted by Buick in celebration of all of their new vehicles. And let me tell you they know how to mix a drink.

I’m really into rosemary and cucumber and olives in my drink. This one had all of them. Yes.

Try it this weekend! You’ll be a happy camper.



TGIF, baby.
