BITCHIN’ BASIL LEMON DROP

IMG_6877Happy Friday, friends! Have anything fun planned for the weekend? If you’ve got people over, or if you just want to treat yourself to something other than your customary glass of wine, we’ve got the perfect little cocktail for you! Meet your new pre-spring favorite, the bitchin’ Basil Lemon Drop.

This little gem is made with Crop Organic Vodka & if you feel like you’ve heard us talk about it before, it’s because we are in love. I didn’t really know the difference between organic and non-organic alcoholic beverages, but now that I’ve tried Crop, I can’t go back. Give it a try & I promise you’ll taste the difference.

Either way, it’s Friday & we think you should celebrate! Give the Basil Lemon Drop a try & let us know what you think! IMG_6843
