I’ve been catching up on a lot of household chores this weekend, and our new place only has an AC unit in the living room so I’ve reallllly been feeling the heat wave we’ve had in Southern California. To combat this, I decided to make a wine cooler beverage that my Hawaiian friend had made a few years back. It’s just perfect for hot weather: fruity, cool, sparkling, and with that nice citrus kick. I was able to use the glass straws I’d gotten from Glass Dharma in the drinks too, so incredibly beautiful! They add a really fun and elegant touch to the drinks when you serve them, plus they’re reusable so it’s good for the environment. They come in a bunch of different styles and sizes, I’m super excited to make boba tea again sometime soon so I can use the big glass boba straw! And to make it even better, the nice people over at Glass Dharma have volunteered to give away a $25 gift certificate to a lucky reader!
