Cherry and Lime Gin and Tonic

We had a September picnic in the park!!!  It was so beautiful!  I am going to have so many picnics next year and a few more this year.  AND we had dogs!!!!!!!

They are my friend Kelsey’s dogs.  You will get more photos later.  I promise.  But now on to cocktails!!!

I have a ton of mason jars around, so I decided it would be super awesome to use them as glasses.  And don’t they look really cool!  I love them.

I am not a big gin and tonic fan, but with the cherry and lime, it was delicious.
