“It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere” (not so original, but an oldie-goldie)

To borrow an old line from the Jimmy Buffet song, “It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere,” so pour something tall and strong. In this case, it’s the Cranberry Lime Refresher and it’s easy to make.

Hospitality starts on your back porch. Add some veggies, dip, and some salted nuts. Then say “hey!”
