More Spring Drinks

Here are two drink recipes that Ben and I tried out over the weekend. The first is a mojito, which is not new to us. The second is a strawberry lemon drop (this was my girlie drink) and it was so good! I forgot to buy grenadine (oops), so I muddled a real strawberry and added it to the drink which was AMAZING! But the drink in the picture is not the one with the added strawberry, because this idea came after the first drink was already made (and I'm not one to waste a perfectly good drink).

Strawberry Lemon Drop
  • 2 oz. strawberry vodka
  • 1 oz. sweet & sour mix
  • 1 large strawberry, muddled
Combine in shaker with ice. Mix well and serve in chilled glass. Garnish with strawberry.

  • 4 mint leaves
  • 2 oz. rum
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • lime juice
  • club soda
Muddle the mint leaves and sugar. Combine with rum and lime juice in shaker. Mix well. Strain into chilled glass with ice and top off with club soda. Garnish with lime.

This is a great article about how to avoid using sweet and sour mix, because let's face it, it doesn't exactly taste good but so many drinks call for it. Thanks for the article, Dan!
