5 Reasons to Raise Your Glasses

5 Reasons to Raise Your Glasses

Here's to the weekend!

April is a very promising month. By now, winter’s dismal weather and oppressive lack of sunlight has all but given way to the warmth, bounty, and beauty of spring. Sure, there is the occasional bout of inclement weather, but that’s easy to ignore, knowing that the world will soon reawaken and be transformed into a verdant paradise that’s bathed in sunlight and teeming with life. Of course, as a child of nature yourself, you’ll feel drawn to the outdoors so that you may enjoy said paradise to the fullest. But you’ll need to exercise caution. The act of enjoyment can be quite draining and may result in occasional, mild thirst. Always be sure to take precautionary measures to prevent such a thing from happening to you. Our recommendation? Always have the ingredients on hand to make at least one of the following five thirst-quenching beverages.

It's going to be far too warm in the coming months to bother with bacon and eggs for breakfast. Opt for a lighter, tropical smoothie instead.
