Why Did I Choose To Write About It?

As you all know each and every post of mine has a story behind it. Similarly this post also has a story.

I once went to my friend’s house. He welcomed me and we both talked and had a great time then he offered me a glass of vodka with a lemon wedge.

I asked him, “Hey what’s this lemon wedge for?”

He said, ” See, just squash the lemon into the tequila and drink you will enjoy……”

I did it and really it had a good taste but something was missing. So, I thanked him and went to my house.

The next day I thought of making some myself and through some error and trial created a great one with sugar and mint in it.

Then, I thought, “Why not browse the internet and see how many more ways can we make it?”

But to my disappointment I didn’t find much information regarding it.

So, I thought of writing an article about it. I hope you definitely enjoyed making it.

I can understand you definitely enjoyed it and want to taste something sweet…….. NO WORRIES!
