It's Friday! Saturday Mocktails, Sunday Morning Brunchtails, Hangover Cures!

Ha! Ok, I am not encouraging anyone to be a weekend lush, especially those with children.
These drinks are for a lazy weekend, no kids around ( fat chance!) and it's just you, with friends or you and your special someone. These are drinks designed to give you a nice buzz while hanging out on the deck in the summer.
They are all great for brunch too! Now that's a great excuse to invite people over and serve something yummy and delicious!
