YOU GUYS IT’S SPRING OMG EVERYBODY!
(Sorry, but I had to yell that at you. HAD TO.)
Today we have a deliciously grownup Strawberry Lemonade from Janessa, perfect for the impending bucket-loads of strawberries that will be hitting the markets.
And, a few links to recipes from the Bazaar Spices blog, written by yours truly:
Braised Collard Greens with Black Cardamom and Coconut Milk – I know you might not feel like braising these days, but trust me and just do it one last time before you start quickly blanching things and eating salads.
Smokey and Sweet Roasted Nuts – These are ADDICTIVELY good, and now that I’m on my own blog and not that of a professional establishment, I can be immature and giggle. Anyways, go make these nuts. (Tee hee).
And now, Strawberry Lemonade!
Strawberry Lemonade (My Way)
FOREVER ago, Kara asked me to come up with a unique-ish drink. I did, took pictures, but forgot to write about it. When cleaning up and organizing iPhoto a couple days ago, I ran into these pictures again. I figured there is no harm in sharing it with you all now!
I love strawberries. Fresh, juicy strawberries make me happy. Unfortunately, when making this drink, we didn’t have any. Frozen strawberries aren’t the same, but they worked fairly well.
Ok, so either thaw a handful of frozen strawberries and chop them, or slice the yummy fresh kind. Add a little bit of sugar (probably 2 teaspoons) to soften the berries as well as provide a delicious bit of juice.
Next, measure 1.5 ounces of vodka using nifty shot glasses.
Fill a cup with ice, add some of the strawberry mixture, and the vodka, and top with lemonade.
Ta-da! Easy, and delicious! I added a bit of basil to the top of my glass. It was aromatic and mmmmm.
