In June I discovered the Capital Gin Distillery, right here in Pretoria.  Kelly has 3 amazing gin releases and my favorite was the Pink Lady.  Feminine and floral, perfect sipping gin.  So soft and easy drinking with hibiscus and thyme.  With Spring around the corner, I had to make use of this perfectly named gin to build a Spring Cocktail.

Following from yesterday’s Mother’s Day Part 1 Gift series, here is the Netflorist Mother’s Day Part 2.  There were just so many beautiful gifts, I could not choose which I wanted of Mother’s Day.  Part 2 has a combination of alcoholic options, gifts and naturally flowers.  What I love about Netflorist is their personalizing options.   You can not only personalize gifts, but also whisky, wine and champagne.
