Dark and Lively Cocktail

Who’s ready for the weekend? I am.

Wind down with this mouthwatering elixir, dark and lovely cocktail, which is a flavorsome choice for both me and my hubby. We aren’t drinkers by any means but sometimes you just need something delicious and enjoyable to transport you into the weekend.

A smooth blend of Grand Marnier and Appleton’s Rum sets the basis for this amazing drink. Add the Ginger Beer and Lime for just a little spike. Throw in a few ice cubes for coolness and there you have it “Annie’s Dark & Lively Cocktail.
