Muddled blackberries, lime, vodka, and ginger beer. Be still my Monday-weary heart.
Happy Monday! May I interest you in some vodka?
Wait…what? Don’t try to tell me you weren’t thinking the same thing.
But really…wouldn’t Mondays be just a little less difficult to get through if we all took some time for happy hour? It doesn’t have to be for a cocktail, if that isn’t your thing; I would happily (read: exuberantly) drop everything on a Monday afternoon for pie happy hour. Or ice cream happy hour. Or burrito happy hour…
You get the idea.
But this week, when we were teased with a taste of warm weather over the weekend only to be thrown back to jackets, close-toed shoes, and a snowflake icon on my Weather Channel app (curse you, Weather Channel!), this is what I want for my imaginary mandatory Monday happy hour: a Moscow Mule kissed with blackberries.
