Friend Friday: Food (& Drinks)

I love Summer and I love summer food and drinks. When I think summer I think bbqs, lemonade, and macaroni salad. I'm not the best chef in the world, that's why I have my bf (he's the cook) but I do enjoy making deserts and mixing up cocktails. This Friday we were asked to share the recipe of our favorite seasonal dish.. the one we love to make and love to eat this time of the year. I don't know if I really cook anything each time this year (unlike every Christmas I make my xmas cookies and chocolate covered pretzels). But like I said I do enjoy mixing up some drinks and making deserts so I'll share some of my favorite cocktails and deserts with you that are easy-peesy.

Friend Friday: Food (& Drinks)

Spiked Lemonade

What You'll Need:
Absolute Citrus Vodka (or whatever Citrus Vodka you prefer)
Simple Syrup (follow these instructions to make your own)
Lemon Juice
Optional: Lemons to garnish

This, of course, all depends on how much you are making but we were able to fill a 1/2 Gallon Jug with the following amounts:
2 Cups of Lemon Juice
2 Cups of Simple Sugar
1 Cup of Absolute Citrus Vodka

Coconut Sorbet and Fruit
If you like Pina Coladas ....and getting caught in the rain...
But seriously if you like anything Coconut there are some amazing coconut sorbets out there and my favorite is the Ciao Bella Gelato Coconut. Anyway, my boyfriend and I had some coconut sorbet in the freezer and some fruit in the fridge and thought lets through it all together for desert! BAM best idea ever!
What You'll Need:
Coconut Sorbet (suggested- Ciao Bella Gelato)

Cut the leaf parts off the strawberries and then cut the strawberries in halves. Scoop out the sorbet into a bowl and garnish with strawberries and raspberries. Sit back, relax, and feel like your in the Caribbeans. Best way to really indulge without feeling guilty!
