There really is nothing better than a beautiful spring Saturday and happy hour at 5! Last Saturday, we worked in the yard, I painted, napped and just enjoyed our day. Brian started cocktail hour around 5 with this delicious Tom Collins. I LOVE these in the spring and summer. So light, crisp and refreshing. Exactly what my weekend needed... so I guess I'll share the fabulousness with you in the form of the recipe.
