New home of theelectrumblog!

New home of theelectrumblog!

Do you like the blog crawl instead of a pub crawl! πŸ™‚

So the other reason for wanting to mix another mocktail today was to celebrate my new blog venue. I’ve been mulling over the whole sobriety thing ever since I stopped drinking 93 days ago. I loved theelectrumblog but the name was a little esoteric and didn’t really declare its intentions. So with only a week to go until I hit my 100th day I am nailing my colours to the mast and celebrating the very best thing about not drinking in the title of my new blog home! πŸ™‚

Now my old self is saying ‘lets just see you slip up royally in the next 7 days now that you’ve made this big declaration’ whereas the new me is saying ‘I am grateful for what the last 93 days has shown me and this home is about the external manifestation of my internal intentions’ (oh and f**k you wolfie πŸ˜‰ )

So now for the mocktail recipe:
Blueberry breezer

3 passion fruit
1 mango, peeled and stoned
125g or 4oz blueberries
Ice
Mineral water

Take the flesh of the passion fruit. Mix it with the mango, then with the blueberries and place all the ingredients in a blender. The amount of mineral water will depend on the consistency you prefer.

Chin chin!

Cherry Delight

Cherry Delight

So first day of the holidays and the kids are already taking lumps out of each other and driving me batty so I’m hitting the bar early πŸ˜‰

I apple, chopped, peeled and quartered
1 pear, skinned and chopped
37.5 g or 13oz cherries

Place all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. This can be diluted to taste with ice and sparkling mineral water.

It’s making caused a temporary truce in the household with both kids giving it a 10/10 and I agree it is delicious.

As I was want to do in my former life I would always be ‘demob happy’ or guilty of peaking too soon and so Christmas Eve would have inevitably been ruined by my warm up session the night before and in honour of that tradition tonight I will be hitting the bar twice with another mocktail being created later πŸ™‚ Day 93.
