Saturday’s are back underway this summer! All of our friends are vaccinated and ready to roll. Yay! We’ve been meeting most Saturdays for cocktails for a few years now. The pandemic and winter didn’t stop us. I’ll share some of our Winter shenanigans later. We adapted through pandemic with smaller gatherings, single serve munchies and cocktails to reduce sharing and double dipping issues. Now that everyone is safely vaccinated and it’s summer it can almost feel like normal.

This punch we partook in last week is based off the Kill Devil Punch Recipe. It got rave reviews…
