quarantine pastime: mixology

some people picked up baking or sewing, and i decided to figure out how to finally make a few mixed drinks–ha! by no means am i any where close to knowing what i’m doing, but it’s been fun trying to figure it out. i’ve definitely had the help of some friends, and google along the way. side note: all of the drinks i’ve made use rum, but feel free to swap rum out for your spirit of choice! if you make any of these, let me know! xoxo
