What better way to usher in The Buggy Blog Cocktail Hour series than with a special cocktail made for a very special birthday girl – I am talking about the one and only Miss Allie E!
At the beach we brainstormed cocktail ideas. We were all in agreement- absolutely no tequila (we saved that for The Box!), nothing too sweet, pink, and the drink to be named later should feature citrus and bubbly!
Voila, a star was born and aptly named the Shawkemo after the road Allie’s family lives on. The as pretty to look at as it is to drink cocktail was a huge success. I am happy to report The Shawkemo is the “new” official cocktail of Allie’s summer house.
1 part grapefruit juice
6 mint leaves per glass
2 thin slices of lime per glass
