day 154: august is cocktail month!

365 projectJoanne ShihComment

It's a new month! This past weekend was sorta crazy so I waited til I had a bit more bandwidth to blog about my new monthly theme. It's.. COCKTAILS! (As if I didn't put it in the title already.) Tasty cocktails are near and dear to my heart (ever since my older cousin Jason introduced me to the world of NYC speakeasy bars when I was a wee 21-year-old) so I thought it'd be fun to devote a month of my 365 project to them.

First up: a paleo spin on the classic margarita. We actually made these back in May for a Cinco de Mayo party we threw at our apartment. Not using a margarita mix = sign of being a true adult?

I had fun with a little watercolor for this one. I'm not sure how often I'll do watercolor but it'd be cool to get better at it!
