Dry Summer (and a Toast to the Summer Solstice)

Here is the thing. I’m moving. That means I’m packing. My house is a mess. And after two months working full time, I have this blogging frenzy, again... Call it feeling good. Happiness. Summer.  So, I’m sharing this tequila cocktail just because of the picture, which by the way is not mine. All my photograph stuff is packed. But when I saw this drink I couldn’t wait to mix and shake it. It’s a must. A drink for serious people (and thanks to my friends Carolina Rincón and Alejandra Rísquez, who on behalf of Tequila Don Julio, pitched me the recipe and the pic!)
