Hi.

Welcome to my blog, hope you have a nice stay!

Minty Raspberry Twist

Minty Raspberry Twist

Spring is here, so let's drink a Spring inspired cocktail!  I recently went on a vacation to Florida for 2 weeks with my husband and children.  We went to Disney, a chocolate factory, the pool, Ripley's Believe It or Not and shopping of course.  While in Epcot I become inspired by the amazing flower and edible gardens.  It made me want to race home and start planting!  Of course it's a bit too early for that so I did the second best thing, make a drink with garden inspiration.

MINTY RASPBERRY TWIST

First, grab some fresh mint from your garden, indoor pots or store bought.  You will need at least 5 mint leaves to give it a good minty flavor.

 Next, grab a few raspberries and put them with the mint in whichever glass moves you for the moment and muddle away.  If you don't have a muddler, you can use anything that will mash and blend.

I decided to use rum to give sweetness to the drink.  I put 2 shots of Bacardi and mixed well.

I was at Fresh Market today and found this amazing cucumber soda.  I love cucumber anything, so of course I had to have it.   It gives a fresh crisp flavor to the drink.  Fill your glass with ice and pour the cucumber soda on top.

And you're done, enjoy!
