The Ann Richards – A Cocktail from The Goodetime Gals

The Goodetime Gals are known for their fabulous rapport, but when it comes to drinks they have very different preferences.
Cameron likes a strong scotch, while Lindsey prefers a champagne cocktail or white wine spritzer.
The combination of their tastes produces ingenious concoctions like the Ann Richards, a summery drink perfect for unwinding. After trying one at Cameron’s house I was inspired to make my own at home, and the Gals generously offered to share the recipe with our readers.
