21st Birthday

Well, I'm finally 21. 

{as of july... I'm a bit late on this... }

I'm not much of a drinker...

But here is what we made to celebrate!

Summer Berry Sangria

{borrowed, adapted and enjoyed from Sandra Lee's Semi-Homemade Cocktail Time}

1 750ml bottle of white wine
{I used cupcake vinyard's chardonnay}
1/2 cup cognac
3 cups lemon lime soda
1 1/2 cups {or as much as you want} frozen or fresh berries
{I used blueberries and strawberries}

1) Mix together in a pitcher.
2) Let chill for 1 hour then serve.


A Caperinha 
{The official cocktail of Brazil}

1 oz cachaca rum (Brazilian)
raw sugar

1) Place the sugar and cut lime in the bottom of a glass. Grind up with a wooden spoon.
2) Pour cachaca rum over the lime and sugar.
3) Serve with ice.


The sangria is really nice and light, not too potent, the A caperinha on the other hand is rather potent, but very lime-y :) 

Other than that we played board games and chatted. It was really low key but perfect :) 

What's your favorite alcoholic beverage recipe?

All For Now,
