I’m going to go out on a limb here and assume that everyone has done exactly what I’ve done during the pandemic which is binge watch the entire Netflix repertoire while ingesting a stupid amount of pizza and alcohol (a hero of Covid, I am not folks). At this point in the game though, I just need some normalcy. Let’s make the next drink fancy. Let’s change out of pyjamas pants. Let’s, dare I say it, put a bra on (’cause y’all know my boobs have been down to my knees ever since this all started). Basically, if you’re sporting an extra 15lbs and double fisting boxed wine at 2pm, you should mix yourself this deliciously refreshing Blackberry Tequila Lemonade instead.
