I’ve never been a vodka lover. It may be because my love has always been for wine. I recently just got back from Chicago, and tried one of the greatest spritzers ever, and yes it included vodka! It’s okay to have a cocktail every now and then right? I recently stumbled upon a great website recently where I seen a wonderful, refreshing recipe for a lemonade vodka mix. The wonderful website Epicurious, has some amazing recipes. I asked the bartender in Chicago if he could try to make it without the sugar added, and he did! Viola! I have to say it was pretty amazing. It was so tasty, that I have to share the recipe with you. This is a great recipe for parties, cookouts, or even to make yourself on a hot summer night. This recipe will fill six- 8 oz. glasses. I did not add the sugar to my drink, as it calls in this recipe, but was still amazing.
1 cup packed mint leaves
2/3 cup packed sugar
1 cup fresh lemon juice
1 1/2 cups vodka
Combine the chopped mint & sugar in a bowl with the vodka. Cover and refrigerate for atleast 30 min. Strain the mixture into a pitcher. Fills 6 8oz. glasses with crushed ice. Pour mixture over. Garnish with the mint leaves. This is one refreshing drink.

The holidays are so difficult with all the great food, desserts, champagne, and sugary wines.. One thing you want to remember is the booze rules for avoiding that hangover! No one wants to feel crappy, and it’s all about the pace! I love wine .. And it’s one of my loves… But you can enjoy your favorite holiday drinks without over doing it! Booze rules:: sip don’t chug.. You chug.. You feel like crap.. Wine and alcohal is meant to be sipped. If you want to chug.. Grab some water!
Limit yourself to 2-3 drinks.. Any more than that. You will crave the junk food… Always eat before drinking. You will not drink as much and will have a more full feeling when it comes to food.
Alternate each drink with mineral water. Hydration is key!
Try to avoid those sugary drinks.. They seriously are a dessert as a liquid!
Choose red over white wine .. It’s more heavy and therefore you don’t drink as fast!
When you get home.. Before bed.. Try to drink some coconut water.. Has key elements for hydrating. Drinking ginger kombucha does well too! Cheers to a healthy festive holiday!
