Strawberry basil hard lemonade

great looking welcome to summer drink

My life situation since the “Musings of a post-grad life…” post has, unfortunately, not changed – I am still on the hunt for employment. Spending weekdays at home in front of one’s computer, browsing, filling out applications and sending emails may sound harmless and optimistic but it is far from it. It is tedious and nerve-wrecking. What’s more is that being alone with one’s fridge is dangerous.

Why spend yet another hour staring into the computer when I can be in the kitchen working on my next creation?

Stawberry-basil hard lemonade
