Friday Positivity - Yummy Drink Recipes For Your First Post-Quarantine BBQ

We are now experiencing, at least in Minnesota, a phased reopening of restaurants and bars.

While it's still essential to practice social distancing, this seemingly small change opens the door to summer possibilities I had all but given up on. Driving through the streets near our downtown office in Minneapolis, one can see patios filling up and people gathering in small groups. What once felt so far away is starting to happen before our eyes.

If the nice weather and steps toward normalcy haven't been enough to boost your positivity levels, dont worry. I've still got something fun for you this week. 

Here are a few drink recipes to kick start your summer BBQ season (or to enjoy by yourself in the sunshine, no judgement here! from Distillery Trail
