This 4th of July, do something creative that brings you joy. Being creative doesn't mean you have to paint the Mona Lisa. Just do something that makes your heart sing. No matter how simple, activating your brain is known to be like therapy. Think about it, you could actually turn something like making dessert into FREE therapy. 💜
This blue cocktail is my own special concoction. It's pretty so, of course, I like it.
Combine in a shaker a one-shot of tequila, juice from two lines and ice. Shake. Pour into a martini glass. Lastly, pour about 1/2 a shot of blue curacao. Need something red? Garnish with raspberries or pomegranate arils. Sip.
