To add a little extra fun to my popsicles, I booze them up in a multitude of ways. There are obviously so many variations you can make, but I always like to make sure that the ingredients I use taste great and aren’t filled with sugar and artificial elements. That is why I love to use SunRype Slim beverages as the perfect popsicle base, as they don’t have any artificial colouring, flavours or contain any aspartame, plus they only contain 10 calories per serving (250ml), how great is that!.Read more
This past weekend I made a delicious cocktail using some fresh organic Ontario strawberries I picked myself! Since I was at the cottage on Georgian Bay I of course used some Georgian Bay Vodka but you can use whatever you have. I thought this was such an easy yet delicious cocktail I had to share it with you.
3-4 Strawberries (leave one for garnish and muddle the rest)
1 Oz of Vodka (I used Georgian Bay because it has hints of Vanilla)
4 Oz of Tamarind Jarritos Soda
Muddle the strawberries and pour into your glass, top with vodka and Tamarind Jarritos Soda. Garnish with a slice of strawberry!
*You can chill the vodka and Jarritos soda to ensure the drink is cold and refreshing.
Recently while on vacation in Todos Santos, Mexico my friends and I came up with this drink which we dubbed 'The Mexican Screwdriver'. Since we had all this fresh citrus fruit available to use we had to take advantage! This is what we came up with and it is delicious! I think I drank about five of them one day beside the pool because they were so refreshing and totally hit the spot. Enjoy!
2 Oz of Vodka ( I like Tito's Vodka because its Gluten Free)
4 Oz of Freshly Squeezed Orange Juice
1/2 Oz of Cointreau
1 Oz of Freshly Squeezed Pomegranate Juice
Mix all Ingredients in a cocktail mixer. Give it a shake and add to a glass filled half way with ice. Serve!
