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.
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
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.
Get it Girl Smoothie
With adjustments from The Kitchen Beet’s original recipe:
1 C water, 1 C each spinach and kale, 1 grapefruit, peeled, 1 C frozen blueberries, 1 TBS chia seeds, 1 heaping TBS hemp powder and coconut oil each and a swirl of agave nectar and juice of one lime. Blend to combine then girl, go get it.
Chia Seed Refresher
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
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!
