Do you ever have one of those days, weeks, or months where you just need a moment to sit down, relax, and have a refreshing cocktail with your girlfriends? Well this
week month has been one of those times. You see, I’m officially in my mid-twenties (I guess I have been for months now) but things are really starting to change all around me. I have friends getting married, moving away, and starting new careers. And here I am at the same job for the past 3 years, with the same boyfriend (he’s a keeper though 😉 ), and living in the same apartment. Don’t get me wrong, I love my job, my boyfriend, and my apartment — but it just seems strange watching people move on with their lives while I’m happily settled.
I think the hardest part for me is accepting that change is inevitable. I know we are all growing up and at different stages of our lives and that’s totally OK. But part of me just wants to go back to the days where I could come home from work on a Friday afternoon ready to go to happy hour or dinner with my girl friends. We would spend hours catching up on everything going on in our lives while sipping on a refreshing beverage (or two…OK maybe three).
Dealing with Change
I think one of the ways I’m dealing with this inevitable change is through this blog. This little blog has challenged me in so many ways and has brought so many new opportunities, experiences, and friendships into my life. If you’re like me and struggling with change, I would find an outlet to harness your energy and creativity. People change, grow, and move on, but that shouldn’t stop you from growing as well. And we shouldn’t ever feel guilty or sad for not being at the same stage in life as someone else. We are on our own path so there’s no need to compare ourselves to others.
Drizly Alcohol Delivery App
Ok, well now that I have that off my chest. I’m sure you’ve all been waiting for this Grapefruit Mule recipe. Mules remind me of days spent at The Patio with my friends basking in the summer sun. I can’t get enough of the refreshing hints of ginger beer and bubbles! For this particular mule, I actually got a little help from my friends at Drizly – a Boston based alcohol delivery service. That’s right, they deliver alcohol right to your door kind of like Door Dash or Grub Hub but for adults. All you have to do is download the app, place an order, and it’s delivered within an hour. Mine came within 20 minutes, they scanned my license, and I had alcohol for an afternoon impromptu happy hour with my friends – pretty cool. For this mule, I ordered Tito’s Gluten Free Vodka, Ginger Beer, and Tropicana Grapefruit Juice. I had my own Grapefruit, Lime, and fresh Basil already at home.
Follow the recipe instructions below and enjoy this refreshing cocktail all summer long with your besties! Also, if you are in San Diego, feel free to take $10 off your first time Drizly order ($25 min purchase) with promo code WELCOMESD.
