It’s no secret that I love using fresh fruits/vegetables in cocktails and with spring upon us one of my favorites is definitely Cucumbers! So, today I’m sharing this quick recipe for a Cucumber Melon Splash! When I think refreshing, cucumbers are a definite!
I used to work at this restaurant that kept liters of water infused with cucumbers in the fridge ready for table service. Honestly, I was surprised how just simply adding a few slices of cucumbers to the water really made all the difference on a hot summer day. Ever since then I’ve loved the thought of adding them to cocktails as well!
This Cucumber Melon Spritzer pairs fresh cucumbers, cantaloupe, cucumber vodka, and sparkling water for a satisfyingly light cocktail!
These Orange Creamsicle Mimosas are the perfect pep up this week! Bubbly Champagne meets sweet & creamy vanilla ice cream mixed with orange sherbet, and just a touch of mint.
It’s no secret that Champagne makes everything better! And this cocktail does not dissapoint! It’s the perfect take on a “Dreamsicle” – no blender required!
To start you’ll need a bottle of your favorite champagne! When it comes to using champagne in a cocktail, it does not need to be pricey! There are plenty of affordable, high-quality champagne options out there, perfect for this! So, grab your favorite bottle. (Note – You can also use Friexenet or Prosecco!)
Orange Creamsicle Mimosas
Start by scooping vanilla ice cream and orange sherbet into your glass. There are premade creamsicle ice creams you can easily pick up or you can add them separately!
Next, pour your Champagne right on top of the ice cream. Add a sprig of mint – this is not only the perfect garnish it pairs really well with the flavors in this cocktail too!
It’s that easy to make! Just scoop & pour. The ice cream sort of melts into the champagne and the flavors just get better and better.
Yesterday, I made this 5 Minute Homemade Salsa! It was so easy to make & it taste just like restaurant style salsa!
I used fresh tomatoes, limes, cilantro, onions, poblanos, garlic, and a little tomato paste. I threw it all in my Ninja Food Processor and in less than 5 minutes it was ready to devour!
5 Minute Homemade Salsa
I used one large tomato as well as some cherry tomatoes, because that’s what I had on hand. Start by removing any stems (tomato & poblano) and seeds (from the poblano). Next, dice your onion. The cilantro can be left as is, the stems are fully edible and good for you too!
Now, If you have the time and supplies – I highly recommend roasting your tomatoes and peppers via the grill or oven. I had a few extra minutes so, I lined a pan with foil and sprayed it with cooking spray allowing my tomatoes and Poblanos to roast for about 10 minutes.
This step is totally optional and you can easily go straight to blending your salsa if you’d rather. Either way will yield delicious restaurant style salsa every time!
Place the tomatoes, onion slices, cilantro, poblanos, crushed garlic, and tomato paste right into the food processor! Squeeze your lime right on top of the other ingredients, getting as much juice as you can out of it and then discarding the rind. Place the lid on tight and blend away.
You can also add salt, black pepper, and white sugar to taste. I used about a dash of each.
Once your salsa is mixed thoroughly it’s ready to serve! Super simple, fresh, and delicious.
Serve immediately or place in the fridge in a sealed container for 3-4 days.
