H2oh!

I love Jesus, but I drink a little. – Gladys Hardy

I just want you all to have the best day, please, I give this video clip to you as a gift: Ellen and Gladys on the phone

If you follow me on Instagram you might have noticed all the drink concoctions coming across my feed. Today, I give them to you.

Rosé Water

Strawberry/Mint water is pink! after a 24 hour steep. Who doesn't love a little H2O Rosé?

Fill a pitcher with water
5-8 strawberries, sliced
5 large fresh mint leaves or 10 smaller ones

Let it steep over night in the fridge for Rosé Water the next day (it has a delightful, fresh taste to it with the mint and a lingering faint strawberry)

Cinnamon Ginger Tea with Coconut oil

Cinnamon-Ginger tea. Only it looks like hot chocolate, yes? Because I took the crazy train to town and BLENDED my tea with coconut oil. Frothy little liar. I might need help. #comebacktomeliver #andpancreas #andsanity

Boil one cup water
Steep one cinnamon stick with one inch peeled fresh ginger, add 1 tbsp coconut oil and blend to combine. Sip decadently.

Chia Seed Refresher

1.5 tsp chia seeds, juice of a lemon or lime (and optional honey to taste) plus water. Stir and let sit for 10 min. Stir before you drink, enjoy the little bubbles of chia. It's so good, you guys. Mini bubble tea-esque.

1 C room temp water
1.5 tsp Chia Seeds
Juice of lime

Stir to combine, let sit for 10 minutes then devour. And giggle. (You’ll want to keep stirring so the chai seeds don’t settle. I use a straw and pretend I’m in a lush garden with a sunhat on.) Pictured with a cucumber garnish: you’re so fancy.

High-Five Grapefruit Gin and Tonic

That's the #highfive for the day. Grapefruit gin and tonic with lime and mint. Because I said so. #yardwork #homesteading #saturday #allthefun

Here’s how I feel about Gin and Tonics: Strongly. So let’s start strong, shall we?

In an 8 oz jar (everything is better in a jar) fill 3/4 with ice
Then fill half with Grapefruit San Pellegrino
Top it off with your choice of gin, I’m partial to the lime gin
Slice up a lime and toss 3 perfect circles into the drink, swirl
Then stab 3 stems of fresh, blooming mint in the top and high-five those petals.

You did it. Well done.

I’ll continue to raise my glass to you: Cheers!
