    1. I honestly never realized how many cocktails had gin in them till I started doing the Happy Hour Time posts! I had a cocktail last night called the Blushing Saint, it's amazing and I think it's mostly prosecco; I'm going to try to find out the recipe for that one for next week! Hope you have a great weekend!
