It may not be Spring or Summer but that doesn't mean we have to deny ourselves of rooftop vibes. I don't know about you but I'm going to fake it until I make it. Meaning, Im going to sit right here on my cozy couch, with Lauryn Hill playing in the back ground, sipping this delicious blackberry mojito, while pretending there is a warm breeze passing my way. Yes, I know I'm dramatic but you get my drift. So stop being shy, and get into this "Summer Time Fine" handcrafted cocktail as we patiently wait for the first signs of Spring to pop up. Might as well prepare for the season change while we wait right!?
