While reading the book The Secret Lives of Wives by Iris Krasnow a few years ago, I came across an adorable story from a couple who had been happily married for over twenty years.
Their secret to a lasting and happy union?
Although this particular couple worked together, ate together, and even worked out together, they both maintained that one of the best parts of their day is when they took some time every evening to freshen up and join one another for a before-dinner aperitif.
Their story has always stuck with me for some reason and now that I’m almost (finally) done breastfeeding my third child, I am inspired to start a little sexy summer cocktail hour of my own.
So here’s a round-up of some of the fun (and aphrodisiac-laced) drinks I found that may just jump-start me on the road to happily ever after. Or at least a happy morning after.
