May is a busy month: from the Kentucky Derby to Jacksonville’s THE PLAYERS CHAMPIONSHIP, there is something to every weekend.
May is getting off to a busy start, especially here in the South.
Between the NFL Draft Thursday night, Tee-ing Off Downtown to kick off the week of The Players Championship golf tournament on Friday, and the Kentucky Derby on Saturday, there’s hardly a moment to spare.
It’s important to take a moment, relax, and enjoy this fabulous weather we are having. You wouldn’t want to get sick and have to miss work next Friday. But, then again I hear, the best medicine is served cold along the greens of TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra.
We recently painted part of our patio Black Forest Green and I love the new backdrop to outside gatherings.
Fill two-thirds of your glass with your favorite beer, add one-third C of Ginger Ale, and top it off with a touch of Gin and a squeeze of lemon. [Beer Cocktail, Jacksonville]
If you aren’t going down to your local NFL stadium for the DRAFT PARTY, this is a great night to make a “Beer Cocktail.”
Grab your partner’s favorite local brew, for Matt it is Jacksonville’s Intuition’s People’s Pale Ale
, your favorite Gin, ginger ale, and a lemon or two. It’s quick, festive, and a fun way to celebrate the Draft… even if you don’t like football.
2/3 C – Chilled Local Brew
1/3 C – Ginger Ale
Top it off with a touch of Gin and the squeeze of a lemon.
If beer isn’t your thing… there is always champagne!
Now, sit back and enjoy the evening.
The patio walls are painted BLACK FOREST GREEN by Benjamin Moore.
