Happy Memorial Day! A big thank you to those who serve and served our country. 🙂 To celebrate, try this light and refreshing drink.

New Years is by far my favorite holiday. Growing up we would have big parties at my Aunt Rosie and Uncle Joe’s house in Brooklyn with all the extended cousins. It was so fun!

It’s that time of year again — MDW, or as most people say, Memorial Day Weekend. It’s considered the unofficial start of summer.
