It’s Thirsty Thursday, with a Cucumber Mint Gin Fizz! On a Sunday.

 How to make a Cucumber Mint Gin Fizz from @kitchenmagpie

So, you know. Karlynn and I aren’t exactly the nine-to-five people that have our stuff together. She was home three days this past week and while she certainly did nag  remind me that I had to get a drink post up this Thursday, life got in the way.

Life driving through this in Glacier National Park on Thursday, to be precise.

Really roughing it, aren’t we? Now of course Karlynn made me stop everywhere and we are still coming back through Glacier National Park on the way home in 3 or 4 days. She needs more photos, as 486 photos of the same mountain aren’t enough, apparently.

Now, on to the Cucumber Mint Gin Fizz. When Karlynn first told me about it, I really wasn’t interested. But let’s face it, what Karlynn says goes, especially when it’s her website, so I made them anyways.

I’m not admitting that she’s right, but I might just be a cucumber in cocktails convert. It could also be the gin, because gin = win. How to make a Cucumber Mint Gin Fizz from @kitchenmagpie

So happy drinking everyone, sorry this is so late! I’ll try to get a new drink up this Thursday ON TIME.

    I had a lady at the bar tell me that gin was bad for her legs. I asked if it caused them to swell or if it had to do with circulation she told me gin made them spread. Bartender a couple gin tonics please
