And no, we aren’t just drinking heavily because it’s storming out every weekend and our kids have the flu and we feel sorry for ourselves.

*Cough*

We just…are really interested in mixing cocktails right now.

Jell-O Gallery And Museum shout-out!  If you haven’t been, you should make plans to go. It’s bliss.

But now, time for cocktails.

“Interesting. You can definitely taste a melon flavor.”

“Really?”

“Yes, but for some reason, it doesn’t quite go together.”

The Verdict: Interesting

From The Tasting Notes –

This was an interesting combo. It started out strong, then went floral, then ended on a bitter note. It had a slightly “off” flavor for some reason, but not too bad. Almost like it was too sour.  Maybe we need to go lighter on the lemon juice next time? And it DID taste like melon, even though no melon flavor was added to it!
