From Moscow with love

Joel and I had a few friends over on Sunday to watch the closing ceremonies of the winter Olympics, and while we were brainstorming ways to imbibe Sochi-style, we got those catchy Chumbawumba lyrics stuck in our heads: “He drinks a whiskey drink. He drinks a vodka drink. He drinks a cider drink. He drinks a lager drink.” We went with the least complicated vodka cocktail we could find (by searching for “Russian vodka drinks” on Google) — this beautifully simple and subtle crushed grape cocktail.

I find inspiration for recipes in the weirdest places. Minted rose soda is inspired by a lip balm I use all the time.

Blood orange soda with rosemary simple syrup

I didn’t really know what to expect when I put this drink together. I love rosemary, but it can be absolutely overwhelming. And how would it stand up to citrus. Turned out: Pretty damn well. The rosemary simple syrup was an afterthought both as you smell the soda and sip it. The rosemary really adds a floral note to the soda, and actually boosts how refreshing this drink is.

The Belgian Bomber and Miss Diana Ross, for your viewing pleasure. The Jo’s on South Congress has lots of great outdoor seating for some prime people (and dog) watching. [Care to hear more about my trip? Check out my round-up here.]

Peach-tomato-basil smoothie

I’ve tried the tomato-peach (well, nectarine) combination before in pizza form and loved it, so I decided to give it another spin for our smoothie guide. I didn’t realize until now how scarily similar the ingredient lists for the pizza and smoothie are. Main differences: The pizza has crust and cheese, and the smoothie has Greek yogurt. Keep ‘em separate, folks.

So obviously the mulberries was a pretty random choice, and I don't expect anyone to necessarily have them, so just use blackberries. Of course if you do have them — great! They're a wonderful source of the antioxidant resveratrol, which may have positive effects on aging and longevity.

Orange smoothie

Smoothies don’t require yogurt. I’m all about switching things up every now and then, and my friend Ellen’s suggestion to throw in a scoop of sherbet was right on the money.
