Today, I had a major cardio workout with pottie training my two-year-old. I guess I should not be talking pottie talk, especially when I am mixing cocktails. But, if you can imagine, I am a mother of three and these situations arise everyday. I had an experience today that was a total disaster – can you imagine that? I don’t know about all you parents out there, but my 2 1/2-year-old does not understand that the training potty needs to stay in the bathroom. I will spare all the nitty-gritty details – but, yes – this is why cocktails need to happen after a chaotic day like today. Bless you Cinco de Mayo!
This lip smack-ing concoction is perfect to wet your whistle and relax your inner being. A Plum Beer Margarita is the solution for a refreshing cocktail. This mouth-watering drink is full of oomph, and rich flavors . I know that you will want to keep this in your drink bible.
