Quick Notes

Nobody will admit to having a favorite among their children, but I have to say this is my favorite drink from this St. James Winery series. I’m a sucker for tequila. This is a drink that makes me wish it was hot outside. I want Jimmy Buffet. I want Bob Marley. I want a bonfire and stringed up lights and lots of friends listening to reggae music outside. I want to drink Bleu Cactus’s by the pitcher.
