Fun Water Recipe: Blackberry Mint

Comments Off on Fun Water Recipe: Blackberry Mint

If you are like me and you crave mojitos in the summer time (well let’s be honest, all year round) then this recipe is for you. I wanted to recreate the mojito flavour for my fun water recipe this week and I must say, it turned out pretty darn great!

At first I was a little worried that because I am not using sparkling water or soda that it would taste too flat, but to my surprise it was super flavourful and tasted magnificent!

simply perfect water recipe with lots of flavour blackberry mint lime mix

Here is what you need: (per glass)

• one glass of water
• small handful of blackberries (about ten)
• three or four wedges of lime
• 5-10 mint leaves depending on taste

I placed the mint, lime and blackberries in my glass, grabbed a fork and muddled the berries and mint until the berries were almost all liquid. This step is key to releasing the flavours, however the blackberries have a lot of seeds, so if you do not want them in your drink I would suggest muddling the berries in a small hand strainer over your glass instead.

Once you have the three key ingredients, add your water, ice and style with a fancy straw to make it nice. (*side note: I used half a lime in my drink and found the lime flavour to be pretty powerful, I did still like it but would recommend just a few wedges instead)

Enjoy!

  • "Big Grandpa died Mom and we need to go get him back." Sophie said as she pulled at my arm from my bed. I lay down not feeling well trying to explain to Sophie about heaven and she said, "Mom, I don't want my parents to die, get better mommy." Oh my heart.

This weekend, we lost my grandfather. He had been sick for a little while, though I really did think his stubborn character would pull him through for more days here on earth. He's resting now, in heaven with our Heavenly Father. There is so much peace in that, though it is never easy to say goodbye, I am especially thankful for God's love and his sacrifice.

For anyone else mourning a loss right now I'm praying and sending love to you tonight. Especially those with little ones who we want to be honest with, that we have the words to let them understand in the most suitable way.

  • For a minute I thought Ezra was only a head shorter then me. We still have time people, notice the feet on tip toes in his shoes... not quite there yet. (Soooo... it's been noted that I'm wearing heels and he really IS THAT TALL NEXT TO ME!)
  • Weekend started early with a little trip to the island with my sister @roxannredekop. The weirdest part about being away from the kids is always bedtime. We are tucking into bed early tonight and I can't help but feel weird knowing that the wee ones won't be around in the morning.
  • The whole family gathered for a taste around my latest @DQcanada creation. Sophie kept asking if it was for Evelyn's birthday, which I think it would have been perfect for since I custom designed the top border with florals.⠀
•⠀
So here's how I made it. I went into dqcakes.com and found this heart shaped cake. It originally had balloons and "Happy Birthday" on the top with a plain white border around the edge. In the personalization option I simply asked for no words or decor on the top and a floral border in purple around the outside top border. Voila! You can do it to! Head to the link in my profile and play around with the different styles and options available on DQcakes.com⠀
