Well, we made it through the first week of the year! And I'd say that under the circumstances, we all deserve to celebrate.

For your weekend enjoyment, today I bring you a simple and refreshing concoction created by Carolyn that would be delicious to sip on by the fire or to enjoy while soaking up some sun at the beach! It calls for just a few ingredients and is super easy to make, making this a recipe to keep in your cocktail repertoire.

And for those of you who want to skip the booze, I've created a mocktail version of this tipple as well, which is just as delicious without the alcohol!
