Sailor's Soda (21+)

Am I the only person quarantine has converted into a mixologist?

Since being home and having ample downtime, I have taken to mixing up cocktails with ingredients on hand and others I get my hands on through grocery delivery/mail ordering such as juices, syrups, etc.

Which brings me to the concoction shaken today: Sailor's Soda as I like to aptly call it. I tincture of vitamin C ladden juices and gin the beverage could have boarded pirate ships of the olden days and cured scurvy (or so I'd lkke to think).

Check out the recipe below. It's bright and easy on the palate but definitely packs a punch!

2 oz pineapple juice
1 oz guava nectar
1 oz lemon juice
1/2 cut up lemon
1/2 cut up lime
1/4 tsp of sugar or sugar substitute
2 oz gin
A splash of Club Soda

Mix all the ingredients in a shaker with the ice (reserve 1/2 the lemon and lime pieces). Shake well until mixed.

Pour into a glass over ice and top with a splash of club soda. Add the lemon and lime pieces to garnish.

ARG! (I couldn't help it)
Sip and enjoy!

Vegan Meal Prep

Hello Dames and Dolls! I finally caved! This week I meal prepped. I always see cute pics and used to see coworkers who meticulously portioned colorful, fragrant foods into little plastic and glass containers. I also thought each time "Who has the time?" Well, since Corona, I now do. And I did just that. First, came grocery shopping, then as life goes I had to delay prepping by one day. But finally, I gloriously prepped. Keeping everything somewhat simple and using  containers from Amazon , I prepped: Hummus and Veggies Potato and Kale bowls Chili with tortilla strips Burger Salad Fresh Fruit Fruit and Yogurt Parfaits Granola with Milk Granola with Yogurt Smoothie Bowls I listed all the breakdowns/recipes on my IG, @doseofvegan_, so be sure to go check it out!
