Lime Cherry Fizz

Friday, July 1st, 2011

What is a birthday week without a cocktail? A boring birthday week. My sister and I developed this one during her last visited. We’ve both been liking lighter cocktails without the heavy mixers lately and this is a super fun, really light cocktail. A bit of cherry, a hint of lime and bubbles. Because everything is better with bubbles.

Sour Cherry Fizz
1.5 Ounces Cherry Vodka (I use Three Olives)
1.5 Ounces Club Soda
lime
ice

I just pour the vodka and the club soda over ice and then add the juice of half the lime, but this would also make a fun martini-like drink. Just mix the vodka, club soda, lime juice and ice in a shaker, shake it up and strain into a fancy glass. I prefer stemless glasses because I am clumsy…

Strawberry Yogurt Parfait

Friday, April 8th, 2011

This is one the dumbest, easiest and most delicious dessert ever. It takes a minute to make and is fun for all ages. These sat for just over an hour in the fridge and the graham crackers stayed crunchy. I think this would be a fun addition to an Easter brunch or dinner. It’s almost full-on strawberry season. WOOT!

Strawberry Yogurt Parfait

Serves 3 (recipe easily adjusts up or down, I just happen to make 3)

3 graham crackers

6 ounces greek yogurt (plain or honey flavor)

3-4 strawberries, rinsed, cored and sliced

1. Crumble one graham cracker in the bottom of each single serving dish.

2.Top with 2 ounces of yogurt, spreading it out a bit

3. Top with strawberries and a teeny dollop of yogurt

4. If the strawberries are tart, sprinkle with raw sugar or a little bit of honey.

4. Stuff your face
