Lately, I’ve been doing a lot more cooking and drink-making during quarantine to keep myself busy! I’ve shared food recipes on my blog, but today I’m sharing a delicious drink recipe. It’s perfect for the spring/summer when you want something cool and refreshing!
I recently planted herbs, which make for great cocktail garnishes. My mint is growing quickly and has been a delicious additive to my iced tea! I was craving a refreshing mojito the other day but didn’t have any rum or lime on hand, so I improvised with Prosecco! I give you, the Raspberry Lemon Prosecco Mojito. Feel free to omit the Prosecco to make it a mocktail!
The below recipe makes 1 drink.
1 half of a lemon or lime (juiced)
Directions: Muddle raspberries and mint together at the bottom of a glass. Then, fill the glass halfway with Prosecco. Add in ice, juice from half of a lemon (or lime) and top with seltzer water.
During this quarantine, I’ve done a lot more cooking. Honestly, I forgot how much I enjoyed cooking and coming up with recipes, including this one I’m sharing today! Before quarantine, I packed my days and found myself “too busy” to cook and would end up grabbing food on the go more times than not. While I continue to order takeout from my local restaurants (support small businesses), I am also doing a decent amount of my own cooking (it’s time to use that food that we stocked up on).
Cooking or baking is a great way to tap into your creative side! This quarantine has taught me to enjoy the things that make me happy and fill my life with joy, cooking being one of them. Whenever life returns to the new normal, I hope to make more time for the activities that bring me happiness.
