I saw blood oranges at Trader Joe’s and just HAD to make a cocktail with them! I had a bottle of Savignon Blanc leftover from a dinner and decided to use that as my base for this cocktail. =) This was such a wonderful and refreshing mid-week drink!
Here is my recipe:
1 (750ml) bottle of white wine (I used Savignon Blanc)
3 Blood Oranges Squeezed/muddled
1/4 cup of Brandy
2 cups of 7- Up (or any lemon lime soda)
(and i wished i had some mint to muddle with the blood oranges or add as a garnish)
I’ve been making toddler meals for Charlotte these days and it has been sooo fun.
I try to put something with protein or fiber for the main meal with a fruit for dessert and a dairy or other nutritious element in the last little box. So far the meals have been hit or miss. Charlotte either loves the items I put out or tries to throw it all on the floor (plate included). I love watching c discover new textures and flavors.
Here are three plates I made below for Charlotte. Right now I’m working to inncorporate different foods and also try bringing back some items she didn’t like. I read that a baby is supposed to try it 7-10 times before you give up. Worth a shot if it means Charlotte will like broccoli! Lol
Woke up super early this morning bc of a sick baby :(. On the plus side it means I was able to grab some food this morning before the rest of the neighborhood woke up.
I’m obsessed with this kale, edamame salad (trader how’s) and a vanilla latte with half the powder (coffee bean). 🙂
Cheers to the freakin’ weekend!!
My new spring/summer drink! I love the lighter milk and the extra flavor the coconut milk gives without any syrups or extra calories. 🙂
Bikini season here we come!
Hope you are enjoying this day with loved ones. C was baptized today! 🙂 such a special way to celebrate her first Easter.
One baby tip for Easter:
We filled her eggs with healthy puffs and snacks so that she could enjoy the plastic eggs and hunt without indulging in sugars her body isn’t ready for :).
