I'm back from my cruise, feeling rested and energized, with a whole load of wonderful memories and interesting tales to tell. Good times just breeze past you, don't they???? The sun, clear blue waters, white sand and the salty breeze have had a magical effect on me and I feel inspired and raring to go like never before.
The downside of travel is unpacking and picking up the pace again. So unpacking and doing laundry yesterday was no fun. So by afternoon I needed something refreshing to drink. Looked in the shelves of my fridge and sitting there were lemonade and ginger ale. A light bulb went off and thought of adding some jalapeno too. So came up with this portion and it tastes delightful. I love anything that has a zing to it and this sure does. The ginger ale adds the much needed fizz and the jalapeno adds the tinge of heat . It's a concoction you can whip up in minutes and looks deadly.
|Lemonade with a twist|
2 cups fresh chilled lemonade (keep a check on the sugar you add here as the ginger ale has it's own sugar content)
3/4 cup chilled ginger ale (I used Seagram's)
3-4 slices of jalapeno (more or less depending on the heat that you can take)
1/4 " crushed ginger
a pinch of salt
Add all the ingredients together and let it sit in the refrigerator for 15 minutes. Once all the flavors come together, pour into glasses and make sure you use a straw to sip into it (you don't want the jalapeno to get in the way of you enjoying your drink). Go ahead and make yourself a glass before summer fades away !!!!
|Love the punch and flavor that a jalapeno brings to any dish|
Stay tuned for more on Travel talk coming up this week.
