Ooph. It’s been a week, kids. I need a drink. Like now. Nothing complicated. No syrups or shrubs to prepare. N fancy rims or garnishes. I don’t want to think. I just want to drink.
One drink, maybe a piece of chocolate. Fifteen minutes to feel sorry for yourself. Then you have to take a deep breath, let it go, and move on. Here’s to saying no to taking onto other people’s emotional baggage. Here’s to pulling back, going internal, and allowing yourself to relax and let go. Here’s to knowing there’s every possibility that tomorrow will be better.
I’ve made you a real life drink today. Three ingredients, and you’re well on your way to a spicy, flavorful drink that will have you totally chilled in no time. We’re mixing up our favorite spiced rum with ginger beer and a squeeze of fresh lime. Pour it all over ice, and you’re done.
Let’s be honest, this is the way we really drink most of the time? I mean, how often do you actually want to stand in the kitchen muddling up fruits and herbs after a stressful day? Fancy Instagram cocktails are beautiful, but this is real life, and this Rum & Ginger Beer is a real life drink. No apologies.
Cheers, my friends, to confronting where you are in life right now, and making the most of it. A little rum should help.
