Happy halfway through the week! This is just a mini post to share a refreshing little number I made the other night. I only had a tiny little bit of my favorite ginger ale left to go with my big ole bowl of popcorn, and that was not going to work. So, I pulled an orange out of the fridge, juiced it, and poured that and the ginger ale all over a glass of ice. Oh, it was good.
