The reason I’m a little bit worse for wear this morning is because I worked my way through 3/4 of a bottle of wine last night. A couple of years ago that wouldn’t have affected me at all, but the older I get, the more I feel the after effects of alcohol. Anyone else get this? Anyway, when I get fed up with daily life or get overwhelmed with everything going on, I find that a total blowout (yes, 3/4 of a bottle of rosé counts as a blowout to me) results in me waking up in the morning mentally refreshed and with a much brighter outlook on life. Even if I do have a bit of a headache now.

    Nicola, I love the colour of this cocktail! Will have to try it out. I find the older I get, the harder I get hit bit alcohol too…but that could be because I just don’t drink much anymore, I’m just out of practice haha.

      Thanks so much, Kyra! I love any colour that even slightly resembles pink, so I’m all over grapefruits. Glad to hear I’m not the only one who can’t hold her alcohol the same way any more 🙂
