I've always loved a good drink in front of me. When I settle in at night and let the stress of work wash over me, I rarely do it without a beverage by my side. I often write about my love of Beer or Wine or that I issued a labor of love to turn a piece of junk into a stocked bar cart in our apartment so that a nightcap is always available. However, most of the time, my relaxing drinks have no alcohol in them at all. I mean weekdays aren't for hangovers or empty calories- they're for exercise, nose-to-the grind and sleep... so rather, I sip on Mocktails.
A Mocktail is just like the name entails: a blended/mixed drink that looks like a fun, summery cocktail but with a Virgin twist. These are super easy to make and you can do it with just about anything, but based on the produce I currently have in the house- here's the Mocktail I've been making for about two weeks:
|^Grab your cast of characters|
|^Basil, Club Soda, ample Lemons & Limes|
|^So much natural beauty!|
|^Start chopping up all that basil goodness.|
|^Sprinkle Basil chunks over the ice cubes.|
|^Squirt some citrus over the basil & ice.|
|^Drop some lemon/limes wedges into the glass.|
|^Fill glasses with club soda.|
|^Now, make use of these extra wedges.|
|^Adorn rims with all that yellow and green.|
I hope you give it a whirl!
