Sunday Ramblings

Sundays… I never know what to do with them, and usually spend them alone. Like most people, I use Sunday to catch up on my week, get ready for the next one, clean the house and maybe start a new project. Seeing as its Canada Day I’m going to use it to get ready to host a few people for drinks before we head downtown.
My to do list:
Plan outfit
Paint nails
Clean house
Buy mixers
Decorate
Scour Pinterest for ideas
Go for a run

Drink ideas for the night:
Going with a red, white and vodka theme, here are some drink ideas for the night…

Strawberry Cranberry Vodkas
a simple Canada Day vodka cooler
Chop 1.5 cups of strawberries, add to pitcher
Add 1 cup of ice
Pour in 6 ounces of vodka
Fill pitcher with cranberry juice

One part cran
Top with one part sourpuss
optional swirl with whipped cream and top with a berry

And lastly…
My own Canadian mojito!
Muddle fresh mint leaves with simple syrup in martini shaker
Add ice
Free pour some vodka – or white rum if you want to be traditional
Add equal parts either raspberry cordial, cranberry concentrate, or cherry concentrate and shake
Pour into glass and top with soda
— or… Shake after the vodka and top with a raspberry soda.
Enjoy!
