Bottoms Up Ya'll!

In honor of FTLOB’s Thirsty Thursday Blog Hop, I have decided to post something for this upcoming holiday. Labor Day weekend is right around the corner and though it may mark the end of summer, the beginning of school and the changing of seasons, its a great way to take the summer out with a BANG! So get yourself to a BBQ or host one yourself but whatever you do, please make sure you have some super tasty drinks for all of your guest!

Take a look at this yummy drink; doesn’t the photo just make you want to run out and buy the ingredients to make it?!?! I know I sure want to! This is definitely an end of summer kind of drink!
