Do you have a favorite drink for crafting? Maybe you always go for the Diet Coke or a glass of tea. Maybe you’re a coffee drinker or water chugger. Honestly, I’m all over the map these days. And lately I’ve been experimenting with new drinks.
The other day on my weekly Facebook live, I showed a new drink that I had mixed up for the evening. It’s becoming one of my new favorites! And some of you asked for the recipe so I thought I’d share it here. I don’t have a name for it so if you think of something clever, let me know!
You can make this as a mocktail or cocktail. Here’s what you need:
8oz cranberry juice
2oz lime juice (you can fresh squeeze but I’m content pouring it from a bottle)
12oz ginger beer (it’s non-alcoholic. I liken it to ginger ale on steroids! lol)
That’s it! Just mix it together and you’ve got a delicious mocktail. If you’d like to kick it up a notch to a cocktail, just add a little tequila and it becomes an amazing margarita of sorts.
Once you’ve got a drink ready, it’s time to create an elegant black and white card using the Ornate Thanks stamp set.
