One of the things I love most about Brandon is that when he does something, he does it exquisitely, especially when it comes to food and drinks. The man can cocktail craft like a pro and I consider myself pretty darn lucky to be the first to reap the amazingness.

We Love Great Cocktails

We love great cocktails. There’s so much fun to be had creating and enjoying them with each other and friends. And lately, we’ve become pretty particular. If I’m going to drink a cocktail, I want it to be great! I don’t want some overly sweet pre-made mix in it. I want a well-balanced and thoughtfully-crafted cocktail that I literally ooh and aah over as I drink it or I’m sending it back.

Okay, okay, now you know how passionate we are about our cocktails. So you can trust me when I say this lemonade cocktail is delicious.

    1. Hi Christina! It was roasted/dehydrated in the oven. Place a baking rack on a baking sheet and spray the baking rack with non-stick cooking spray. Arrange thin slices of lemon on the rack and bake at 275 degrees for about 45 minutes.
