I came across this recipe (or I guess a picture of a drink at least) on Pinterest the other day. Seeing how simple the recipe was and that I already had the ingredients I knew that I would try it soon. At least I had everything but the superfine sugar the recipe called for…but stevia goes in my coffee every morning and I thought that would be a great substitute. I don’t care for sugar or salt rims on my martinis when I order them out so I skipped that step. I also wasn’t feeling fancy enough to carve a pretty lemon peel for the glass. All that matters is that is was a great way to relax after class on a Wednesday night! Cheers!
