Welcome to July Dream A Little Bigger readers! I’m Sasha, author of the blog, Tattooed Martha. You may remember some of my recipes from last year and I’m happy to announce that I’ll once again be sharing my home-cooked dishes, baked goods, and cocktail concoctions with you all!
To celebrate my return to Dream A Little Bigger I thought I would start off with a refreshing summer libation.. The Flamingo Cocktail! A simple blend of white rum and fresh squeezed lime juice topped off with bubbly grapefruit soda makes for one sweet, tart, and crisp cocktail. You’ll be sipping these poolside all summer.. and yes.. dunking your toes in a one foot deep kiddie pool still counts as poolside. ;)
(makes 1 cocktail)
2oz white rum
1oz lime juice (1 lime)
3-4oz grapefruit soda
Lime slices and fresh mint leaves for garnish
And drink umbrellas of course!
Combine rum, lime juice, and a handful of ice in a cocktail shaker and then shake for a few seconds (if you prefer, you can just mix the rum and lime juice and pour into an ice filled glass). Strain the mix into a glass and top with grapefruit soda.
Garnish with a lime slice and mint leaves, top with a cocktail umbrella, and serve.
