Rosemary Lime Cocktails

When it's "that time of the day" and you finally get a chance to kick off your shoes and put on some music. When you can plonk yourself down in a comfy chair and close your eyes. When you can take a deep breath... IN... and OUT.  Make sure you have one of these in your hand. Oh, and a bowl of pretzels within arms reach.
