Plum Vodka Fizz

We're coming into another heat wave at my house, 102F today and 108F by the end of the week! Luckily they gym I train at stays pretty cool because there's no way they'd turn on the AC. The building is 53,000 square feet (and there is no AC, I'm just speaking hypothetically). The building used to be a cannery back in the day and my coach (the owner) put in a couple of those Big Ass Fans (that's the actual name) so it's bearable! The part that sucks is getting in my car to drive home afterwards. Luckily there is AC in it! And I always have an ice cold FITAID to chug when I'm done. As I was chugging my FitAID on the way home the other day and thinking about how tan I could get in this heat (if I could bare laying out in it) I started imagining myself at the beach with a cocktail in my hand. You know, what we all day dream about right? So when I got home that's exactly what I did. Okay not exactly, I don't live at the beach anymore, but I do live on the river. So I made this cocktail, walked down to the dock, and enjoyed the sunshine. I had to jump in the water constantly to cool off, but it was perfect.
