Today is Ed's birthday! So we're celebrating with his very favorite go-to cocktail, the Jack and Coke. For this month's installment of our AHP Cocktail Series, we're also sharing my choice, the Pimm's Cup. We've added the word "winning" to it because our dance Nationals will be later this month! If you missed our first recipe, or want a refresher of why we do this in the first place, make sure you check out March’s Cocktail Recipes. And don’t forget to sign up for our newsletter! Our subscribers always get email reminders when these posts go live, and I always try to include a little something extra just for you.

Today, we're packing up and getting ready to leave bright and early tomorrow morning for the beach. This year's dance recital is over, which means it's time for the National Competition! Our whole family will be spending two weeks in Florida. One of those will be mostly consumed by dance (which is fine by us!), but we intend to totally morph into lazy beach bums for the other.
