Mama Needs a Cocktail

 Quarantine is exhausting.
.
strawberry lemon tequila
.
Way back in March (i.e. a few years ago), overnight I became chief caregiver, teacher, cleaner, cook, household manager, and husband-taker-carer, in addition to running MiliMili with Rose. It has been... a lot. 
.
And the highlight to many of my days? BEDTIME. 
Love those kids dearly and unconditionally, but 8pm can never come soon enough.
Thank freakin' goodness for sleep routines and schedules.
The next best thing after bedtime? My evening cocktail. (On weekends - it's a naptime cocktail.)
.
Since I have a lemon tree and a gazillion lemons this time of year, this recipe from Caroline Chambers was the perfect refreshing use of my current ingredients.
