Yeah, its’ cold outside.. well for many parts of the world.
Here on the west coast of the United States, it’s been Spring since mid-December!
Chilly cold nights, warm sunny days, no rain, no clouds.
So it’s not incomprehensible that one might whip out a cool drink and wander into the backyard.
Our neighbor’s chickens have the right idea.. spending the afternoon pecking near the orange tree.
We served this refreshing drink at my Cafe, and it was one of the top 3 sellers.
