Task list for the day- See pretty pictures of delightful drinks!

Why, you ask? Because why not!

Well, last night, I suddenly had an urge to make myself a cocktail. That’s why I thought that you just don’t go and make cocktails. With more than two centuries of history behind the cocktail, there is an art to making a good drink!

So I didn’t make myself a drink, but I did my second favorite thing. Going on Pinterest & just drooling at some of the beautiful shots of cocktails sparkling with crushed ice. One thing led to another, & I decided that I need a compilation of my favorite drink pictures on my website.

Whoever said that drinks aren’t a piece of art, is in for a surprise!
