It’s not the heat (although I’m not a big fan of heat), it’s the humidity. Humidity is not really a thing in L.A., but for some reason it’s here and it brought along it’s best friend, the mosquito. The humidity is bad enough, but waking up every morning with mosquito bites? Unacceptable! Therefore, I’ve been soothing my pain with my new favorite cocktail: Bourbon Arnold Palmer.

Let me make something clear…the Bourbon Arnold Palmer will not soothe the welts on your skin, but it will keep you calm so you don’t angry-buy every bug zapper/spray/net available on Amazon.

If you’ll excuse me, I’m off to make some more. I feel my mosquito-rage rising.
