It seems the San Antonio Zoo needs to raise money. It had its ZooBall recently.
To make things a bit tastier, Nieman Marcus created a cocktail in honor of the event. It’s called the ZooBall Cucumber Martini, and it’s as delicious as it is simple to make.
Though the ZooBall has passed, you can still help the animals. Click here for information.
