Hello. Welcome to Day 18!
I know that this post is later than usual but I have good reason. I went to my first combine/crossfit (whatever you want to call it) class yesterday and all I feel like doing is laying in the tub and crying. Seriously people, someone could use me as a surf board I am so stiff. It really is funny, in a sad sort of way.
But don’t pity me, rejoice for yourself because I made my self a stiff drink and am here to share it with you! Yay, a lovely, lush Tuesday!
Best part about this cocktail is it is flexible to fit the needs of your liquor cabinet and the other ingredients you can find at a liquor store or grocery store easily! A big pet peeve of mine are the cocktail recipes that are made with a million and a half odd ball things that firstly, I don’t know where to find, and secondly, when I do find them they are way to expensive to buy for one specific cocktail. Am I right?
1 oz. Ciroc Red Berry Vodka
Club Soda — I like soda, if it is not your favorite try a lemon-lime soda.
1/2 cup Greandine
1 cup Water
Note: If you want to drink this lovely now, scratch the ice cube steps and just add a splash of grenadine to your drink.
Grenadine Ice Cubes:
Step 1. Bring 1 cup water to a boil, then remove from heat.
Step 2. Add 1/2 cup grenadine and stir.
Step 3. Pour into heart molds and freeze.
Note: These grenadine ice cubes do not seem to fully freeze so they need more freezer time than traditional ice cubes.
Step 1. Pour Red Berry Vodka in glass, according to your level of thirst, and top with club soda.
Step 2. Toss in a couple grenadine ice cubes and raspberries.
Step 3. Lift glass to lips and drink.
Note: If you want your drink to be especially pink, put raspberries in the glass first and pour vodka over top. Let them steep a wee bit and then pour soda over top.
P.S. This is scrumptious. I am not a cocktail person and I consumed the one in the picture before I was done taking pictures… This is a judgement free zone, so stop thinking what you are thinking. 😉
