First off, Happy Friday. Congrats on surviving the week.  Second, we need a new cocktail and man, have I got one for you. Third, I’m in L-O-V-E with this blog Spoon Fork Bacon. It’s pretty much perfect in every way. Now, on with the booze…

Kiwi Capiroska is like a Caipirinha. Both are Brazilian. Since the hubs is Brazilian we have to represent in my house. This is the perfect drink to send summer off with a big, wet kiss.

Cheers, lovlies.
