New Orleans is definitely showing signs of spring this week. Just last night, I came home to see that the daffodils we had planted are blooming!! I just love this time of year. It's perfect for porch sitting and cocktail sipping. There is nothing better on a warm spring night than a cool and refreshing drink. This jazzed up beverage sounds too good to be true! It's like a mojito met New Year's Eve. I cannot wait to try it this weekend!!
