blood orange + rosemary gin fizz
Friends, we have so much on our minds, and much to celebrate! Firstly, it's Friday, which is a good enough reason all unto itself. Secondly, Bird Food is in the final stages of development, and all the love you've showed so far has been amazing! Maybe best of all, it is now less than one month until the official start of Spring, and the end of this disgusting cold. Any one of these things is reason enough for a toast, but putting them all together makes it that much sweeter.
The only downside to the changing season, is that it marks the end of citrus season. So, just like all things, we should take advantage of the fleeting. Whether it be, weekends, good news, or weather that doesn't involve multiple layers, get it while you can, people. Cheers!
