Simple Spring Cocktails with Lemon Love
Weekends are allll about balance for me. After working really hard all week, I thoroughly enjoy getting together with friends and enjoying a cocktail or two on a Friday night. Who doesn’t? What I definitely don’t enjoy is the headache and hangover one is usually greeted with the next morning after enjoying said cocktails. I learned not too long ago that the hangover symptoms are mostly a result of a battle between the alcohol and the sugar found in traditional cocktails. The answer? Cold-pressed, low sugar cocktails with Lemon Love!
