Raspberry Gin Fizz

This Raspberry Gin Fizz is a delicate berry-filled cocktail splashed with a hint of soda water and lime for a light, refreshing drink. Most of the ingredients you already have on hand in your kitchen!

Everyone needs a really good brunch cocktail in their repertoire. A cocktail to serve guests at a brunch party (my FAVOURITE kind of party!) or just for sipping on your patio on a lazy, warm Sunday morning.

Earlier this week I was ruminating over the fact that my raspberry bush is behind by a whole month! For this cocktail, I’ve bought raspberries from the market, but I anticipate making this cocktail again and again (and again!) with raspberries from my garden.

 Rosemary Gin Fizz cocktail | Breakfast for Dinner

Happy Christmas Eve Eve! Only one day to go until Christmas!

Tomorrow morning J and I are catching a very early plane to Mexico to spend a week in the sun with my family. We aren’t doing any gift exchanging this year – our present to each other is the vacation together! I can’t wait. We’ve had such a rainy, snowy, and cold winter so far – it will feel so good to be blasted with some heat.

This will be my last post until 2017. And what better way to celebrate than a Rosemary Gin Fizz cocktail?! Cocktails may not be breakfast food, but they are certainly appropriate at a brunch party – or any other time of the day after that. 😉

Simple Homemade Apple Cider

Only 5 ingredients and 30 minutes to this Simple Homemade Apple Cider.

What do you normally drink in the morning? Coffee? Tea? Water? …?

I am a coffee drinker, myself – not because I need my cup of joe, nor because I’m addicted to the caffeine, but because I like the taste and it’s a nice ritual. There’s just something about heating up our espresso machine, listening to the ssssssssssshhhhttttttt while steaming milk, pulling a foamy shot of espresso, and then pouring it into my favourite thermos.

But, there are some days when I don’t want a coffee with my breakfast – I want something more special. Something more seasonal. Something like Homemade Apple Cider.
