Berry Cucumber Vodka Mojito Cocktail Recipe


I particularly love mojitos in the Summer because I find them SO refreshing and cooling.  I replaced the usual rum and used cucumber vodka for the mojito-  cucumber gives it an even more refreshing taste.  I also added no sugar, but,  if you like your drinks sweeter- add some simple syrup or a bit of sugar- I think the strawberries and raspberries give it enough sweetness though! 



Berry Cucumber Vodka Mojito- No Added Sugar

6 small strawberries
10 raspberries
Large handful of chopped mint
2 shots of cucumber vodka
Ice
Sparkling water to taste

Divide the strawberries and raspberries evenly into two glasses and muddle them until they are well "mashed" (I think mashed is a technical term...)  Add the chopped mint and muddle a bit more til mint is fragrant.   Add some ice,  a shot of cucumber vodka and a couple splashes of sparkling water to each glass- enough to make it bubbly!  Stir and enjoy!

Friday Link Love


I really, really love coffee

I also would love to drink some strawberry & peach rose sangria!

My little girl just turned 4 and I am updating her room from a sweet nursery to a big girl room. This Little Street's big girl room reveal has so much inspiration!  We even have the same bed!

I want this gilded palm tree glass!

Over on Momtastic this week, I shared a Berry Kale Yogurt Popsicle- why?  because my 4 year old wont eat veggies, unless I hide them.  Have a picky kid? Make them!

I love Persia Lou's cheeky tote bag- she also made tassels for it, its awesome.

Wine is a Fruit free printable. Yes- Happy Fri-Yay!

DIY 3 Tiered Copper Planter


This may be my final copper pipe DIY, I have had so much fun with them, but this was the last sketch in my DIY notebook.  It does not mean it will not come up again, but I had a long list and they are now all completed!  I made an iPad holder, wine holder, cake stand, table, hanging planter and now a 3 tiered planter!

Materials:

Copper pipe cuts:

6 - 8.5 inch
4 - 9 inch pieces
4- 3 inch
3- 6.5 inch
2- 27 inches
2 tees
16 elbows

Heavy duty glue (like elmer's probond advanced)
3 plant saucers*
3 pots (and plans) *

* I recommend resin/light plastic pots and saucers.  I wanted a minimalist design for the three tiered planter.  Therefore, there is not a lot of stability to hold heavy pots.  If you want to use terra cotta or the IKEA pots as showing pics, you will need reinforcement on the bottom and in each tier.  It still looks good (I added them as a test) but I preferred the look of this one the best, so used this design as my final result.  P.S. because I changed it so many times, it was 3 weeks of design before the final decision!

How to put together:


The only non-identified marks are the elbows.  Once you have all the cuts, it is VERY easy to put together, like an IKEA instruction booklet ;)

 Glue each piece together and allow to dry for at least 24 hours before putting anything on top of it.  *Do not use gorilla glue, it was my first use because I was out of Elmer's Probond- Gorilla Glue did not work.  

Glue each plant saucer on- or not- I did not, so I can change out .
