El Toro!

Friday, June 18, 2010

My husband is a twin and thus he loves a competition. We were invited to an engagement party where you had to make a specialty drink and the winners drink is going to be served at the wedding. Cute huh? When my hubby saw the invite it was game on!

Rewind....The two of us spent Memorial Day weekend in Vegas at the Bellagio (one of my fav hotels) and they had this drink called Toro!

It is basically a Vodka Mojito with a splash of Red Bull! It was so yummy...so this is where we stole our inspiration from!  Making with vodka instead of rum makes the drink less sweet and lighter ;) Perfect fresh summer cocktail.

Side Note!  WE WON ;)

Here's the recipe..
2 1/2 oz Vodka
3 Fresh Mint Sprigs
2 tbsp Sugar (I used Raw Cane Sugar)
2 tbsp Fresh Lime Juice
Soda Water
Splash of Red Bull
  1. Muddle the mint, sugar and lime juice in a glass filled with ice
  2. In a martini shaker, shake the vodka and soda water up and pour on top on ice
  3. Splash the Red Bull on top

Yummy Yogurt Treats

Tuesday, June 15, 2010

Today was Lily's last day of school. 
They were having a luau and water day (isn't that fun)
and we didn't get to make it because she has been sick ;(

Summer's here and it's hot...So we made some yummy treats.
My mom use to make for these for us every summer.
Super easy and a great alternative to Popsicle's.
 What you need:
1 container of yogurt (i use organic non-fat vanilla)
1 can pineapple chunks
bananas, blueberries (or any other fruit you like)
1 can maraschino cherries
1 bag mini marshmallows
baking cups (i like silicone ones, they don't stick)
mix all together in a bowl
pour into cups and freeze!

Super Easy and Yummy.  Perfect for little hands.

LLBB is making some changes...more streamlined and little different format.  Keep checking back to see our new look!
