Thirsty Thursday – Blackberry Ginger Ale

I’ll have a What I’m Loving post next week. I just finished Hollow City, Ransom Riggs’ sequel to Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, late Tuesday night and the story was still too fresh for me to write about! Until then take a look at what I found at my Target today.


Blackberry Ginger Ale. Doesn’t that sound scrumptious? It sounds yummy all on it’s own really, but the first thing I thought of when I saw it was, “I bet that’d be a really great mixer.” And wouldn’t you know I was right? No fancy recipe at all this week – I just put some whiskey in a glass and put the purpley ginger ale on top. It is really very good this way. It would be equally delightful with any manner of liquor, such as rum or vodka. Speaking of vodka I did find a recipe while doing research online that would be very good with this – it’s called a Blood Orange Collins. It specifically calls for Stolichnaya Cranberi vodka but I bet it would work with any vodka really, since you’re getting a berry note from this ginger ale. Somebody try it and report back to me how good it is!

Short post today – I’ll be back tomorrow with spring outfits, and Saturday with another DIY skincare item! Until then, have a lovely day.
