Berry Hibiscus Refresher

A friend of mine makes some absolutely delicious cocktail cubes, but as I’m cutting back on alcohol I’m making new and delicious sober cocktails! This one is loaded up with a bunch of local goodies!

Berry Hibiscus Refresher: Makes 1

  • 2 Raspberry Hibiscus cocktail cubes from Meliora Forever
  • 1 – 2 tbsp raspberry or cherry shrub – I made a homemade cherry shrub, but FingerLakes Harvest has some absolutely delicious shrubs
  • 8 oz raspberry blackberry tea, iced – I used the raspberry blackberry combo from Cup of Communitea on Main St in Amherst, NY!
  • Sparkling water to taste

In a glass or shaker, muddle your cocktail cubes with the shrub, top with the tea, and add sparkling water if you like! Best served over ice (but I’m out), for a refreshingly delicious sober cocktail.

Happy Accident (Lemon Vanilla Glaze)

So, I was messing around to get my aquafaba whipped cream’s life together. I’m still working on it, but during the process I accidentally made a super tasty lemon vanilla glaze!

Happy Accident Lemon Vanilla Glaze: Makes About 8oz

  • 1/4 cup aquafaba (AKA, chickpea juice)
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 – 1/2 cup avocado oil
  • 2 tsp lemon juice

Combine all ingredients except avocado oil and blend, slowly adding the oil until your mixture thickens.

Enjoy drizzled on cookies, cakes, or even toast or pretzels!
