As you know, I have kind of been in a Zen like state this holiday season. I have really been trying to simplify around here, and focus on the joy and love. I think I have streamlined how to plan ahead to really enjoy some of the activities that come along with this time of year.
One of them being holiday cards.
This year, I thought it might be fun to make up a little cocktail and turn up the tunes while my honey and I addressed our envelopes. I decided to make Jingle Juice.
There are a million and one recipes for Jingle Juice, and some of them seem pretty intense with several kinds of fresh squeezed fruits and simple syrups and slices of things. I decided I would even make my Jingle Juice Zen like, and stream line that too.
Easy Jingle Juice (make 1 cocktail)
1 oz raspberry flavored vodka
2 oz cran-apple juice
2 oz orange juice
lemon lime soda
In a small glass, add ice, and set aside.
In a cocktail shaker, add more ice, vodka, cran-apple juice, and orange juice. Shake for one minute. Pour into glass. Top with lemon lime soda. Serve immediately. (If you’re not into vodka you can leave it out.)
Don’t tell me this won’t make addressing those cards just the teeniest bit more enjoyable?
