Farm to Feast: Mother's Day Edition

I hope that none of you are cooking this Mother's Day unless you want to! So, I am featuring a few drink recipes (both alcoholic and non) for your enjoyment this Mother's Day or anytime!

Mint Iced Tea

I love the taste of fresh iced tea, but it can be boring without a little something extra. I think fresh mint is fantastic to brighten it up (plus, you can use the extra for mojitos ;))

Ingredients:

8 bags of decaf green tea

12 mint leaves, rinsed and dried

1/4 cup cane sugar

32 ounces water

Preparation:

Boil the water. Remove the tags from the tea bags and clean off the mint. In a large pitcher, add the sugar, tea bags, and mint. Pour the water over and let steep on the counter for 10-15 minutes. Remove tea bags and enjoy over ice!

Grapefruit Rosé Spritzer

Even though THIS Mother's Day seems to be a wet, yucky day, we still think a spring cocktail is in order. I love the combination of rosé and grapefruit here.

Ingredients:

6 ounces Rosé, such as Coté Mas

1 ounce grapefruit liqueur (I really like Giffard Créme de Pamplemousse Rosé Liqueur)

Splash of club soda (preferably grapefruit flavor, such as La Croix Pamplemousse, sold at Whole Foods or Target)

Sliced grapefruit

Sliced strawberries

Preparation:

In a wine glass, drop in sliced strawberries, and a hand full of ice cubes. Add the liqueur, then the rosé. Top with a splash of club soda. Garnish with a grapefruit slice!

Happy Mother's Day, everyone!
