You’ve heard the phrase “try before you buy”, well I feel that way when it comes to food and drink. I want to hear if something is good or bad before I try it. So if it’s yukky, you’ll be sure I will NOT be posting it. Even if it LOOKS good but TASTES bad, it won’t be here. Pinky promise!
So with that being said, I had something else lined up for you today, and I made it before “making it” like I do for the blog, and it was awful! Like the worst cough syrup EVER. I said NO WAY am I serving that up to my tribe! So instead, I went to my bar and pulled out these three ingredients to create something that tastes like candy (I’m a bad mom… my daughter tasted it! and…. she did say it tasted like candy, hence where the name CANDY comes in… that’s not a good thing to hear from a teenager is it??? )
First and foremost, if you don’t have a home stocked with LaCroix water, you should. Zero calories and a hint of flavor is perfection alone or mixed with something else, which is exactly what I did. I pulled my LaCroix Cran-Raspberry out, a little Malibu (my all time fave), and cranberry juice.
Wait let me tell you the specifics below (insert sarcasm).
Cranberry Candy Splash
- 2 parts LaCroix Cran-Raspberry water
- 1 part Malibu rum
- 1 part cranberry juice
- lime for garnish
Pour ice in your glass and add your LaCroix. Add Malibu and top with cranberry juice. Garnish with lime slice.
Complicated stuff, I know.
So, we’re in the thick of August, and it’s hot outside. Are ready for summer to be over or do you love it still?
Happy weekend loves! Cheers to you!
