Hello hello! How’s the day going to this point? I hope you’re having an important morning. I’m catching a yoga class and spending the remainder of the day engaged on some stuff for Match Group and the podcast.

For at present’s publish, I wished to share an excellent scrumptious and EASY cocktail recipe. This one is courtesy of my brother Kyle, and we discovered make this whereas we did his Cocktails within the Kitchen class at Miraval.

TBH, I haven’t experimented with cocktails an excessive amount of. I really feel like they are often intimidating, and whereas I can comply with a recipe, I don’t are typically very inventive with cocktails. (Value mentioning right here that I do make a really pretty margarita, however that’s about the place it ends.) He had our stations arrange with contemporary herbs, berries, instruments, and gin, and earlier than we knew it, we have been cheers-ing one another with the freshest libation I’d had in a very long time. I’m so pumped to share the recipe with you!

Blackberry Cucumber Cocktail






Easy syrup (equal elements honey and water)






Muddle all the substances (minus the gin).

Subsequent, add within the gin. Shake, pressure, and garnish!

Kyle gave us an superior tip for serving cocktails like this at events:

Make a big batch of those and retailer within the fridge in a pitcher. Make one serving of those for company whereas they’re over (to allow them to see the “wow” issue of it being ready), however then serve the remainder out of the pitcher that’s already able to go and garnish.

I like this tip as a result of making single cocktails has all the time been intimidating to me – I simply don’t need individuals ready round for his or her drinks whereas I put together each – so it’s an important thought to have a bunch able to go and chilling within the fridge.

One other lesson I discovered: I’m actually into gin these days. I’m a wine or tequila woman, however I like the smoothness of gin and that it’s so impartial.

Right here’s the total recipe if you wish to give this one a strive!!
