Grown Up Lemonade



There is nothing more refreshing than a glass of ice cold lemonade on a hot, summer day! The addition of a few ingredients can elevate your favorite childhood drink into an elegant cocktail. We are loving this recipe from Dig This Design :

Fresh raspberries
A couple sprigs of mint
4 oz cold sparkling wine or lemon flavored sparkling mineral water
2 oz Limoncello liqueur, cold (I keep mine in the freezer; it doesn’t freeze because of the alcohol content)

Put your glasses in the freezer if possible, or at least the fridge so that they are cold.
Put the raspberries on a plate; separated from each other and place in the freezer at least 15 minutes before serving time.
Gently ‘smush’ a couple of small mint leaves and add to each glass along with 5-6 of the frozen raspberry ice cubes.
Add limoncello, then the sparkling wine or water.

Cheers to the weekend!



The Perfect Pin: Cheers to Chocolate!

Cheers to Chocolate for Valentine's Day!

Why? Because, of course, our Valentine cocktail MUST include chocolate!

Yummy recipe from Garnish With Lemon blog:

  • 1½ ounces Godiva chocolate liqueur
  • 1½ Creme de Cocoa
  • ½ ounces vanilla vodka
  • 2½ ounces milk
  • Hershey’s Syrup for glass
  • Fill a martini shaker half full with ice and add the Godiva Liqueuer, Creme de Cocoa, vanilla vodka and milk. Shake vigorously to mix up. Swirl the inside of the martini glass with the Hershey’s syrup and then strain the chocolate martini into the glass. Serve immediately.

Cheers! xoxo
