Oooowheeee it’s hot!
It’s been one of those years when Portland is simply not equipped for extremes. Does it feel like just yesterday you were reading a bubbles+sprinkles post about Snowmageddon? (That may be because I’ve been super MIA, but we’ll gloss over that). You DID just read about Snowmageddon because we jumped from 20 degrees to 100 degrees real quick.
Alright, no complaints. I frolicked at Sauvies Island with some besties, celebrated the OHSU Intern year graduation of some other besties, went wine tasting with some other besties– I got to see many, many good peeps. And I don’t think I’ve introduced the most important bestie of all– Nora! Nora, meet bubbles+sprinkles readers. She’s a 3-pound, 4-month Maltese who has stolen my heart and made my year.
(She says hi back!)
Nora and I thought that today would be a good day for bubbles+sprinkles to contribute to the Frosé phenomenon. We know that it’s been going on for a while, but hey– I know I’m a late adopter in some arenas– no shame. Frosé is a wonderful combination of Rosé frozen with ANYTHING mixed in. We went for strawberries, pineapple and La Croix (mango style). It turned out super delicious and I’m calling it my fruit salad for the day. You can mess with the quantities depending on taste and desire of booze for the day. (Mine was pretty high).
Recipe (makes 4-6 pint sized drinks):
- 1 bottle Rosé of your choice
- 15-20 strawberries halved
- About half a pineapple, cubed
- 1 can La Croix or sparkling beverage of your choice
- Spritz of lemon
Blend everything except the sparkling beverage of choice on high for about a minute. Stir in sparkling beverage of choice. Spritz that lemon, or drop it right in. Dig out cute silver straws that you only use for *fancy* beverages and garnish as you please. Enjoy and wear sunblock!
Hope everyone has a wonderful week!
