Kem's Kandy for the Weekends

I wanted to share some special ideas to do this coming weekend (or any upcoming weekend)!  Some of them may be new recipes, or home improvements, or maybe just a day at the park.   I am always looking for fun projects or new ideas, so please, feel free to share!

Strawberry Mint Cooler
What better way to kick off your weekend than with a fabulous cocktail recipe?! If you’re trying to lay off the hooch, the second version is sans alcohol.

For the alcoholic version you’ll need:

  • 1 bottle Sake – any kind will do
  • 1 bottle Champagne
  • 1 pint strawberries
  • 6 meyer lemons
  • 3-4 springs of mint
  • Vanilla Stevia
Slice your strawberries into vertical slivers, tear mint leaves roughly, and add both to a large pitcher. Squeeze the juice of 6 meyer lemons and gently muddle (muddle = mash) the ingredients using a wooden spoon. Add equal parts sake & champagne, and lots of ice.  Squeeze a dropper full of vanilla stevia into each glass before serving.  Voila, you’re done!!

I’m not drinking this month so I opted for an alcohol free version by simply substituting sparkling mineral water for the sake and champagne.  It’s absolutely delicious and will make you feel like a million bucks every time you take a sip!   This recipe is great for entertaining too – your guests will be raving about it for weeks!!

 Making a map of your family travels! How cute is that?  Visit the above link to learn how it was made.  Super easy and super inexpensive!

And lastly, I think I shall use my Sunday to unwind and watch as many Harry Potter Movies as I possibly can.  

Stay Sweet,
