I am very fortunate to have some pretty kick ass business buddies one of whom is a whiz with inventive cocktails (she’s also a major foodie), so we obviously get along. Alyson Thomas is the very talented artist behind Drywell Art (you’ve probably seen one or two of her well known pieces around). While perusing her blog, I came across this delightful sounding summery cocktail recipe. She was kind enough to let me re-post this fabulous recipe here. Get cocktailing people and be sure to check out the Drywell blog. Cheers!

There comes a time when things are up for debate, such as if pineapple belongs on pizza or if the center of a brownie is better than its edges.
