I always enjoy a visit from my mother. We always stay busy. Fun fitness classes. Walks downtown for Starbucks. Trips to the fabric store to redo some chair cushions. Always doing something.
This trip turned out different. Mom broke her leg in a spin class. The Doctor said it is the hardest bone to break. My mom doesn’t do anything small. If she is doing something, it is all or nothing. Well it has been a challenge this trip for the both of us to find a balance. Mom still thinking she can go to the gym and just pedal with one foot vs. the fact that crutches are difficult to maneuver around.
I have been creating interesting meals by cleaning my fridge as we were all leaving for spring break in a week. Lots of meals. Meals that would make DH and the kid happy as well as mom. Sadly I was too tired to create a drink on Wednesday, but come Friday I needed a margarita. I bought the Kirkland brand which was yummy but wasn’t enough to stop the voices in my head.
So being that I still had a bowl of those darn cuties, which weren’t going to travel, and wouldn’t last till we got home, I needed to find something to do with them. So. I juiced them and made another cocktail.
The Cracked Fibula
2 shots of Kettel Vodka.
2 shots of blue coroco ( orange liquor.)
2 juiced cuties.
1 can of La Croix orange.
Take a tall glass. Pour in the liquor and vodka and cutie juice. Stir. Add a bunch of ice. Top with La Croix.
I like using La Croix as a mixer. No sugar and light flavor. If you find this a little tart you can use 7 up instead.
If you would like to make a pitcher of this I think slicing the cuties like you would a lemon slices would make the pitcher look nice.
I am off to Florida for spring break. I will find a new drink for next week. Then the week after that herb planting will start..
Hope you have found some sun..
