Sorbet Champagne

I know this isn't a usual Friday post but with the weekend being here (YAY!!!) I wanted to share a drink recipe with y'all. Since finding this recipe, this has become my go-to drink for most of summer. I found it on Food & Wine magazine's website and changed it a bit. Mainly, I didn't add black pepper in the sorbet.

2 scoops of Berry Sangria sorbet
2 scoops of Pomegranate Acai & Blueberry sorbet
1 bottle of Champagne
Sidenote: I used Moet & Chandon but I tried it with Barefoot and some other brands. The main key is that it's champagne.

Put the 2 scoops of each sorbet in a martin glass.
Pour champagne over the sorbet.

Let the drink sit for a little to let the sorbet melt.
Drink and enjoy.

Oh, and if you do want to try to have a healthier drink out here is a table telling you which is the best to drink:
Helpful since I do like a good drink.:
Everyone have a great week!!!!

I hope everyone has a happy Thursday!!!

Fitness Tuesday

I hope everyone has had a great Tuesday so far. I'm not going to lie: all the things that I made to post have been drinks, extremely tasty drinks. I am finally going to make some food tomorrow.
On another note: I finally gone back to the gym. I love doing Pilates but I noticed personally that I was starting to lose a good deal of muscle in my legs since I haven't been doing weight training. Let's say I tried to burn out my legs today which means I'm likely going to feel it when I can't move tomorrow morning. Here are some leg and butt workouts for today:

Thoughtful Thursday

Happy Thursday everyone!!! It's hard to believe that the week is almost over but it was a short week due to the holiday (which I think we should get the whole week off for but that is a whole different conversation entirely). Here are some thoughts for today from Pinterest:

Blueberry Lemonade Lincoln Club Cooler

Last week I post some drink recipes for the July 4th weekend. Today, I am going to share one of the drinks I made: the Lincoln Club Cooler. One of the main reasons I like this drink is because it is super easy to make.

I substituted the regular rum for the Blueberry Lemonade flavor (which I love using in the spring and summer). 

1 glass of ice
2 shoots Blueberry Lemonade Cruzan Rum (because I like me drinks a tad bit strong)
1 bottle Reed's Premium Ginger Brew
optional frozen Blueberries

Fill glass with ice.
Add frozen Blueberries in glass.
Add half the bottle of Ginger Brew in glass.
Pour the 2 shoots of rum into the glass. 
Top off with rest of Ginger Brew. Stir.

This time I tried using the Ginger Brew because one of the girls I know suggested I try it. And now I understand why. It has a stronger ginger taste which adds a little more flavor to it.

I am finally getting back into the swing of balancing everything (internship and the two jobs) out. So that means: more recipes in particular the black bean brownies I  have been trying to make forever. 
Yay to being able to cook/bake/doing mixology again.

Fitness Tuesday

Anyone who has been reading my blog long enough knows that I have a small addiction to exercise clothes. And you know that I buy all of them from Victoria's Secret. They have decided to lower the price of their sport bras, which makes them super affordable now compared to when they were $55 and up. Not just the price but now they are broken up into support type so you can get the one that best fits which activity your are doing.

 Here are some of my favorites:

Does anyone else have a clothing line that they are loyal to when it comes to exercise gear.
