Hey there! A few weeks ago we made some yummy nibbles for our March Madness gathering. Well, you certainly can’t have nibbles without drinkies. If you are like me, you like easy to create drinks made with things that you have at home. I pulled two beverages recipes off the internet and then changed them to fit my needs. Then I created a wine spritzer that anyone can assemble. I always have vodka on hand so when I found this Basil Lime Gimlet drink (that called for gin) I swit
