It’s Recipe Redux time again :) The only complain I have about the Recipe Redux is that it’s making me realize how FAST one month goes by. I feel like it was just yesterday that I was sharing the watermelon-feta-mint skewers but here I am, preparing July's theme. WHERE IS TIME GOING?
The only positive thing about time going by so fast is that in one more month I’ll be heading to California for a 10-day vacation! If you follow me on Instagram this is old news, if not, let me share my excitement since le boyfriend and I are road-tripping California at the end of August! We’ve been saving most of our summer salary from the summer camp where we’ve been working at and we already booked flight tickets and rented a car. I will share all our adventures over here when it happens.
Going back to Redux, this month’s theme was about showing how we like to cook, bake or mix-it-up with spirits, extracts and other alcohols. I’m not an alcohol fan, but when I found out wine actually has some benefits if drank in moderation (150ml a day for women, 300ml a day for men) I decided it was time to take advantage of le French boyfriend. He’s not a wine expert, but we are determined to accomplish the mission of teaching me to drink wine. So far we haven’t made much progress, but I'll keep you posted ;)
The only way I can actually drink alcohol is when it’s mixed in fruity drinks. Let’s say, I have no problems with drinking a strawberry daiquiri or a light sangria. So, I decided to mix a bunch of phytochemicals and create this delicious and healthy Strawberry Wine Daiquiri.
