One of the perks of midlife is sharing cocktails with your adult children! We’ve started a tradition of having a “signature cocktail” for all our special family events. The joke in our family is we spend more time planning the cocktails than we do the food! We served this Berry Lemon Cocktail from Melissa Kaylene for our Father’s Day brunch and have continued to enjoy it throughout the summer. It is filled with fresh raspberries and blackberries and is so light and refreshing. Enjoy!
