It’s been a busy week here at SMP Living, chock full of lovely things of the very best kind, but I have to admit that I’m ready for the weekend to show it’s face! And what better way to kick off the end of the week than with a cocktail that’s equally as pretty as it is delicious. The talented ladies at Spoon Fork Bacon have done it again with their crazy innovative, beyond fabulous concoctions; this time with a hibiscus infused vodka cocktail. And to that, I raise my ruby-coloured glass in a toast! Happy almost-weekend my dears.
