Hey Stranger, remember me?
I know, I know – it’s been quiet around here. I’ve seen all those comments and emails enquiring where TF I’ve been and when I’m posting a new DIY/recipe. I’m right here bbz – but between starting a new job (helloooo life update #surprise) and doing pop-up markets every weekend (shameless plug: come visit me at Artists & Fleas if you’re ever in NYC), the truth is that I find myself spending the little free time I have binge-watching Netflix. But the good news is I’m settling in to a routine so life is finally calming down.
So what do you do when life calms down and you have a quiet moment? You shake up a cocktail, duh. 5 ingredients and no expertise required to transport you to a summer paradise with this drink.
what you need:
- 5 blackberries
- Juice of half a lemon
- 1 tbsp honey
- 1 shot of gin
- Ginger ale
step one: In a tall glass, add the blackberries, lemon juice and honey and muddle together (use the back of a spoon if you don’t own a muddler).
step two: Add the gin and top with ice.
step three: Fill top off the glass with ginger ale, stir well and serve
I’m sipping on this cocktail hoping to find some inspiration for new DIY posts, but somehow all I can think of is laying on a beach with a fruity drink in hand. I’m not complaining!
Do you have any ideas for future DIY and recipe posts that you’d like to see? Tell me in the comments or message me! always love to hear from you.
