Don’t Judge Me Mondays: Lime Vodka Soda
I hope you all enjoyed Thanksgiving last week! Derek and I went to my parents’ house for Thanksgiving dinner and had a great time. It was a relaxing day and it was nice spending it with my family. I was asked to make a bread item so I decided to make something special since my parents were doing most of the work hosting and made croissants. They take some time but are totally worth the effort and the recipe in the America’s Test Kitchen cookbook is fool-proof!
I’m sure many of you had a long weekend so today may have been especially brutal. After all that eating, I wanted a cocktail that was light, refreshing, and above all, easy. I also wanted something with a bit of fizz. Let’s be honest, as I get older my stomach sometimes needs some TLC after a big rich meal. Vodka with a tart citrus twist ticked all of the right boxes!
Let’s get to it!
You’ll start by filling your glass with ice. Now fill your glass halfway with the club soda.
Squeeze the juice of a lime quarter in and pour in the vodka.
Now top with the rest of the club soda and give it a quick stir. If you’re not a lime fan, you can swap it out for lemon.
Garnish with a lime wedge and enjoy. You can take this moment to be thankful you made it through the first wave of the holiday season. 😉
