The election this year seems to be stressing everyone out. I often wonder how we all put up with the trash talk in politics. We’re taught not to treat others how you would want to be treated, yet politicians do the exact opposite. My girlfriends and I may not agree on who we will vote for but one thing we do agree on is to make time for friends!
This weekend we are making it stress free- no politics- just family and friends! Instead of talking politics, we’ll be celebrating the countdown to the Presidential Election with some patriotic-themed cocktail recipes, as seen below, from zero-calorie, Sparkling Ice.
Join Us and happy voting on Tuesday!
