cheers to spring! | three fresh ways to toast the new season

FOOD, RECIPES, SEASONS, SPRING

cheers-to-spring-Recovered

The kids and I picnicked in the yard earlier this week, afterward pushing our plates aside to sprawl across the blankets in the warm sun. Each day it seems we find new plant life sprouting around this old house, and the kids pick wildflowers by the handful. Both make me so happy. Since our kitchen isn’t fully functioning yet we’ve continued eating almost every dinner at my sister’s house. Only now, we can take our meals to the backyard, and the kids run off to play as soon as their bellies are full. We’ve been using the fresh herbs in her backyard to make our dinner cocktails, playing with the flavors. Each one tastes simple and fresh. Since several people have asked about these drinks after recently posting a few on Instagram, I thought I would share three here before the weekend. Enjoy and happy Friday!

one // freshly squeezed grapefruit + 2oz. gin + a splash of sparkling water + a chopped basil leaf

two // 1/2 orange + 1/2  grapefruit (both freshly squeezed) + 2 oz. of tequila + a squeeze of lime + a few sprigs of muddled mint
