CUCUMBAR MINT GIN COOLERS

Posted on

The weather is getting nice, the days are long, (which means the evenings are really long), and my hectic schedule is begging me to drink a cocktail more often.

My favorite part is the pretty green color they turn. It’s not scary green, but fresh, healthy green! Like I feel like I am drinking a green juice with booze- they must neutralize each other
