I'm covered in paint. It's hotter than usual here. I needed a refresher after doing some painting....I'm converting a room into my home office which is really exciting! I posted this on Instagram and Facebook, but it's too good not to add it to the blog!
I put a twist on the traditional Lemon Drop! I added mint....& served over ice with extra sparkling water. Here's the post from Instagram...
✨ 1 1/2 oz vodka (omit if you want a "mocktail"
✨ 1 oz pure cane simple syrup
✨ juice from 1 lemon (2 tbsp)
✨ 4 large mint leaves (torn up)
✨ sparkling water
Fill a shaker 1/2 way with ice (I used 1/2 cubes, 1/2 crushed).
Add all ingredients EXCEPT the sparkling water.
Muddle the ingredients to really crush up the mint (if you don't have a muddler you can use the end of a wooden spoon)
Shake vigorously & pour into a glass (I used a large stemless wine glass. (I poured 1/2 without the strainer to get some mint & ice, then strained the rest.
Top with sparkling water!
Enjoy! So tasty & refreshing!
Like my new nail polish? I'm loving pastels right now! I always put all of my favorite things in my Happy WifeStyle store....so you can
along with all of my other favorite things!
I've even expanded my store to include "HusbandStyle" and "StellaStyle" so you can shop all of my family's favorites! Great for gift shopping, because I only add my FAVES. ;) Enjoy!
