Casey’s Doctor Libre

Cocktail and Art for the Doctor Libre

Casey’s situation reminded me of myself, many years ago–young, divorced, and rebuilding my life after it all (only I didn’t have a young son to take care of). Back then my unofficial theme song was LeAnn Rimes’ Because I Can (aka One Way Ticket). With that song running through my mind (not to mention the art–the music notes are the opening bars to that same song) and the theme of possibilities and freedom and liberation, I created a twist on the classic Cuba Libre with a Tex-Mex vibe (she is from Texas, after all) and her favorite soda, Dr. Pepper.
