Even though it’s Monday, I’m already planning for the weekend! We may have family coming over so, just in case, I prepped a refreshing cocktail to make sure it would be up to par…and it was. Fall may be upon us, but I’m not ready for apple vibes…still holding on to Summer tastes. This raspberry mint spritz is perfectly refreshing. It’s 3 ingredients – really two because one is a garnish. You know I’ve been loving Be Mixed (here and here) and trying out new ways to enjoy their mixes.
*tip: I love getting champagne/sparkling wine splits. If you know you’re not going to use a whole bottle, why open it and let it go to waste.
Be Mixed Cucumber Mint
Raspberries (for garnish)
I used a white wine glass (mainly because I like how it looks and it’s more spritz-y…just go with it) and added the Be Mixed Cucumber Mint and topped with rosé. Added a handful of raspberries as well as garnished with some. That’s it!
Note: You could add ice if you’d like or just make sure the cucumber mint and rosé are chilled.
Want to make it more boozy?
In a cocktail shaker, add ice, Be Mixed cucumber mint, and 2 oz of vodka). Shake well. Strain into glass and top with rosé.
Want more raspberry flavor?
In a cocktail shaker, muddle some fresh raspberries and repeat the above.
I love a good suit. Always have. I especially love the trend we’ve seen this year with shorts. It looks chic and automatically put together. When I was planning my day trip to London last month, I was trying to figure out something that would be chic, comfy, and versatile (just in case it was chilly..or rainy). I’d been eyeing this suit from L’Academie and decided it was perfect. And it was on sale…hashtag winning. I paired it with a simple white body suit. In doing so, I could take…
Nothing like a fresh salad during these warm end of Summer days! This cucumber tomato salad is so simple and one of my favorites to break out. It’s perfect when I need a great side dish or a light snack. Even though it’s light and refreshing, I think it’s a staple to be enjoyed year round. Bonus, only a few ingredients. You mix them up, let them chill and enjoy! Cucumber Tomato Salad Ingredients: 2-3 cucumbers 2-3 tomatoes (wedged if using large tomatoes; halved if using grape) 1/4 cup of…
I still can’t believe that Summer is almost over. I mean, seriously. Did we even really have one? We must have had too much fun, although I’m going to try to hold on for dear life. I’m keeping the Summer vibes going with this ‘under the sea’ like tablescape. You need at least one last Summer inspired dinner party or just a dressed up dinner for you and your family, right? I often wonder what BJ thinks is up when I dress up the table for us on random Tuesday…
I shared last week that one of the changes I’ve made in my diet, that I’ve noticed great results from, is adding more fiber. More specifically adding the appropriate amount of fiber that a woman is supposed to have every day. One of the easiest ways I hit that 25-30 gram mark is by eating GG crackers. One cracker is 4 grams of fiber and I typically will do 4 in the morning and 2-4 for a snack in the mid to late afternoon. I drink a ton of water…
