Fresh Fridays, May 28


Happy Memorial Day weekend! Before we get to all of the great potluck and BBQ food, I want to take a moment to give honor to those who have died while serving our country.

I deeply respect, honor and greatly appreciate their sacrifice as well as the sacrifice of their families. I hope we all take a moment to pause and give thanks for what each of these valiant men and women did for us.

Two New Drink Recipes

I have been having some fun with drinks lately and I wanted to share these with you!

Blueberry Gin Cocktail aka Blueberry Gin Gin Fizz

Get a load of this gorgeous cocktail, layered with fresh blueberry syrup, Ginger beer (or your favorite mixer), hint of mint and lemon, then topped with gin, Empress1908 Gin in this case.

Blueberry Gin Cocktail with skeweered blueberries, lemon twist and blueberries laying around.

Strawberry Refresher (non-alcoholic)

A light, bright and fresh drink that has two simple ingredients, making it so easy to make even for a crowd!
