 Happy Hour at Home: Long Island Iced Tea Cocktail


Our happy hour at home beverage was Montebello Original Long Island Iced Tea Cocktail. All you need to do is to add ice. My snack was a 100 calorie snack bag of Peas Please that we received at a snack food promotion. A good combination!

Hi there Roy. I agree with Alexandra - sounds like a winning combination. Later, when Bernie gets home, we're going to have a margarita on the deck, not sure what kind of snack we'll have....
