Happy Birthday, Eric!!!
Eric is the master of mixed drinks in our house so in honor of his birthday, I’m sharing an easy margarita recipe for a date night in! I am SUPER picky about a FRESH marg without having lots of additives, bright weird colors, or too many sugars. If you are a little extra about your cocktails too, you’ll probably love this one. 😉
In honor of Eric’s 36th birthday I thought I would share 36 things I love about him! To start out this list I feel that I have to kick it off with a BANG giving an ode to his bar skills! He makes such delicious cocktails at home that now half the time I go out to restaurants and order a drink, I’m disappointed because he makes them so fresh, icy and shaken…the key to any good cocktail I’ve learned.
