Pour Up, Drank.

I consciously uncoupled myself from my job on Monday. So, in the spirit of things, let’s have a drink! My favorite alcoholic beverages are those that are refreshingly citrus filled, very cold, and have just a hint of sweetness.

Classic Pimm’s

  • 50ml Pimm’s liquor
  • 150 ml lemonade
  • Fruit of choice
  • Garnish

Mix in a high ball glass, adding crushed mint, orange slices, and even strawberries if you like. Pimm’s originates from England as a gin based digestive aid, and I feel like it absolutely has some healing properties!

White Wine Sangria

  • 1 bottle white wine
  • 2/3 cup white sugar
  • Two oranges
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 cups ginger ale

Slice up the citrus fruit into small chunks to release their juices into the mixture. The wine I used today is a two-dollar bottle, available from Trader Joe’s. I may not be a sommelier, but I think it does its job just fine.

Both of these recipes are great for either lounging by the pool in the summer heat or frantically banging out applications for employment!
