Wine Slushies for an Unexpected Thirsty Thursday

Sometimes, at a certain point in the summer you need to just throw your hands into the air and make a wine slushie. We have arrived, friends. 7/11 free slurpee day came, went, and left me feeling incomplete, probably because those slurps just don’t satisfy the Thirsty Thursday criteria.

Back in my day it would rain at 3pm every day in the summer, and return to business/sunshine as usual by 5pm. Not so now that I’m back in the “sunshine” state. but whatever, it’s Thursday, it’s happy hour, and we can all drink like it’s sunny. Enter this mango cilantro mojito. Now, I realize that cilantro is a highly divisive herb, and that many individuals feel it might be the direct botanical descendant of satan, but I’m Read More →
