Basil Whiskey Sour

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted! Life has been quite exciting lately and Levi and I spent two months hanging out in Arkansas with my brother and Levi’s cousins…needless to say, he had a blast! We had a great time hiking and bit of a scary time living in tornado alley haha.

I’ve been looking forward to Spring (I need to see a little greenery and sun please!) but currently am looking out the window at 8 inches of snow. *SIGH*. I guess groundhog Punxsutawney Phil was right this time!

If you’re tired of winter, like me, try my Basil Whiskey Sour recipe below for a taste of spring!
