Hello everybody and pleased Monday, this is Liz &amp Jewels again! You may possibly have missed us, we took a little break from our Food in Motion series. It ended up getting a lot of work creating foods video clips, to be truthful, and with the two of us being so involved in guide creating, teaching and our modest young children, it&#8217s just not achievable to generate movies as well. We&#8217ve determined that for now, we&#8217ll discontinue Foods in Motion and go back to straight up, pinnable, yummy recipes.


I know this is a humorous post for the 1st issue on a Monday morning BUT hey, it&#8217s by no means to early to believe about cocktails correct? 🙂 And when it comes to cocktails, we are such girls! We like sweet, fruity, light, creamy… Not so considerably smoky, bitter, and powerful. We like when our cocktails tastes like a drinkable dessert. When we have pals above, we like placing on a tiny present by producing anything memorable. For instance, these super cute berry ice cubes. They are incredibly effortless to make but the consequence is wonderful due to the fact as they melt in the cocktail, they modify the shade of the drink &#8211 like a slow sunset. So lovely… This is the ideal drink to start a entertaining evening with your friends.

Slow Sunset Ingredients (for two servings):

Fruity Ice Cubes

  • one cup of frozen blueberries, raspberries, or even sliced mango
  • a couple of mint leaves
  • water
  • ice cube tray

Put the frozen berries into a food processor with a small bit of water (about half a cup). Puree until finally smooth. Pour into an ice cube tray and cover every cube with 1 mint leaf. Freeze for at least three hours.



  • one cup of sparkling water
  • one cup of rum (I like the sweeter sorts, even the Malibu Rum with Coconut Liqueur)
  • juice of 3 limes
  • 4 tablespoons of brown sugar
  • mint leaves


Stir every thing with each other. You do not want to shake it due to the fact you would drop the carbonation. Serve with the berry ice cubes and take pleasure in with a pal! If you try out this recipe, let us know what you feel and how you modified it at all, we often adore to see how folks recreate cocktails to their liking. Maybe a shot of vodka would be good in this also?
