This is your friendly reminder that we lose an hour of sleep this weekend. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news! But, what it does mean is we have MORE daylight. We’re going to spring forward.

In the light of the shift of the light, I created my own concoction with a citrus blend juice, a tropical vodka, and fresh strawberry puree. I also wanted to create a fun look in the cocktail’s presentation, the layering of the fruit puree with the liquor elixir.

It tasted almost like a buzzed up smoothie!

I can’t complain. {wink!}

Spring Forward

  • 2 oz Orange Pineapple Juice
  • 2 oz mango vodka
  • 1/2 container fresh strawberries, washed
  • ice

Puree strawberries. Set aside. In a shaker mix the juice and vodka with the ice. Pour halfway up into martini glass. Top with the strawberry puree, pouring in a spiral motion. See the layers remain separate from the sides.

It’s a fun cocktail to look at and even more fun to enjoy as the weather begins to warm up. It’s not an over the top tropical drink, but it’s beginning to get us in the mood for the warmer weather.

Are you looking forward to the time change and more daylight?

Cheers to the weekend! You made it. We BOTH did!
