Limoncello Gin Cocktail

Limoncello Gin Cocktail

I went through a phase in my life where I wanted everything to be white – pure, unblemished, perfect white. If I was to be honest, it was probably because I went through a difficult break up and wanted a new and clean slate. It’s strange how events like that change your perspective on life. Up to today, white is still my default colour of choice when picking out anything that comes in a variety of colours. Some say boring, I say… timeless classic. Will get back to you in 50 years to see if I am right!

I have never really done much black and white photography at all but I tried it out recently and have decided I quite like the look of it! I bought some Limoncello for a future project and decided to make a cocktail. It was delicious – if you have the ingredients handy I highly recommend it.

Lime Basil MojitoWhat is one to do when one has an excess of limes and basil? Why – make a modified version of a mojito, of course!

Recipe as follows (makes 1 drink)

Half a lime, juiced
A slice of lime to look pretty in the glass
A few basil leaves
A shot of rum
1 tablespoon of sugar
Ice cubes

Passionfruit Mocktail

I have never been much of a drinker. I still had some leftover passionfruit pulp from my passionfruit macaron attempt and decided to just mix it with some tonic water. It was very refreshing and for something that was made up of only 2 ingredients – delicious.
