It’s hard for me to believe, but The Spicy RD Blog is 1 year old today!

And, honestly, I wouldn’t have kept up The Spicy RD blog this past year without the support, encouragement, comments, and most especially shared laughs with all of you, my awesome readers, so THANK YOU from the bottom {and top :-)} of my heart! You guys ROCK!

And, what better way to celebrate my 1 year blogoversary, than with a healthy-ish cocktail!

Not just any cocktail mind you, but one that’s got a hint of spice, like fresh ginger.
