It’s a gin and juice party!
Thank you 1915 Bolthouse Farms™ for sponsoring this post.
Missouri is like a thousand degrees right now. It actually feels like I’m living inside of an oven. The temps have been at nearly 100 degrees for 14 days and counting, with no break on the horizon anytime soon. And although I live for all four seasons, hot and cold and everything in between I’m certainly looking forward to my trip up north to Minnesota in a few days. You know, for a little cool down. Even if the high there will be in the 80s, that will certainly provide some reprieve.
This summer I want to bring all the chill – swim at the pool, putz in the garden, grill vegetables, eat vegetables and drink a plethora of refreshing cocktails. Which leads me to – #DRINKTHESUMMER! Last summer, Renee and I organized a group of 38 bloggers who came together on one day to celebrate the seasonal bounty in a very boozy way. This year I want #drinkthesummer to be even bigger and better, and anyone that has a blog can participate.

So today we’re giving the classic gin and juice cocktail an elevated and healthier spin with 1915 Bolthouse Farms organic, cold-pressed juice. 1915 is an ultra-premium line of beverages made with simple organic ingredients, and available at grocery retailers nationwide. The gin and juice recipe is pretty easy. Pour some gin over ice, mix in the cold-pressed juice, and then top it off with all the fresh fruit and herbs that you can.
I get it, celebrating the birth of your blog may be a tad self-indulgent. But that said, With Food + Love is my baby. This is my space. This is a piece of the interwebs that I’ve claimed as my own and that I call home. And I guess you’d say I’m brave enough to let the whole world into it.
You see, each week as I’m creating these plant-empowered recipes, I have you in mind. Yes, you. I pour my heart and soul into the food I make and the photographs that I take. This is an extension of me, my life and my work and I’m proud of it. So – let’s party!! Thank you all so much for reading and spreading the word about With Food + Love. As cliche as it sounds, it really, truly does mean the world to me.
Okay now for the fun part – let’s celebrate with Boozy Green Lemonades! So I love a delicious cocktail and as you know I also love a delicious green juice, I put these two together and I think I birthed something pretty freaking genius. Continue reading
