ginger mint limeade

August 22nd, 2013

One of the things that has dramatically changed since I became a mom is the lack of booze in my life. Not that I was drinking all the time before, but I certainly enjoyed a good drink after a long day. Or a lazy day. Ahh, one day, but for now I have to live without it because lack of sleep and general exhaustion has me loopy enough. But a girl needs a little excitement, so lately I’ve been treating myself to one of these lovely bevies at lunchtime. It’s just the right amount of zesty refreshment to perk up my afternoon. Plus, I have an hunch that a little bit of gin in this would make one heck of a summer cocktail.

Cheers! To sunshine, summer, and a bit of pep!

2. Add the ginger syrup, then fill the glass with ice.
3. Top it off with seltzer, add a straw and stir. Enjoy!
