The original post for today was going to be a “delicious” (aka pretty) cocktail recipe to add to your Happy Hour rotation, or really just your board on Pinterest because let’s be honest who really makes fancy cocktails all that often?! I spent the afternoon photographing said cocktail (all with a super sick kiddo clinging to me) and when I was finished with my photos, I decided to take a sip of my labor of love because I thought I deserved it. So I took a big ol’ sip and it was GROSS. So gross in fact that I could not bring myself to share it with you.
