With all the cold winter weather lately, we needed a little bit of a pick-me-up and reminder of sunny days spent on the river. The only wintery thing about this drink is the snowball used in place of crushed ice! The dragonfly glasses are another reminder of warm summer days and can be purchased on our Etsy store HERE
