Hello. I saw your blog and followed you here from Snick's World, hope you don't mind!

Your post today caught my eye. These recipes sound fantastic! We are in process of adding a bar and are always on the lookout for new drinks to try. My husband and I once spent an entire Summer making shots from a POSTER on the wall at a famous (red) burger place!

Thanks for sharing! :)

And...Nice to meet you!
