Today marks the end of a 10-day detox. I have been working with a new doctor who practices naturopathy because I’m trying to work on a holistic routine to my wellness initiative. I’ve felt better than I have in months, but that doesn’t mean I didn’t miss my normal food cravings or libations. I can’t wait to sip wine and have some really stinky cheese. But, before I started my detox I spent a long weekend in the mountains and learned one of my new favorite cocktails from my friend Christina.
A little background on Miss Chris. Every year we get away to the mountains Christina always comes with a new libation. I always come with the wine and it’s a match made in mixology heaven. The minute Christina pulled out this Bacardia Dragonberry Strawberry Rum I knew I would be a fan and this would be added to my summer cocktail creation. I ended buying another bottle because we went through hers so quickly.
I like to call this Christina’s Berry Sensation:
- 3 parts Bacardi Dragonberry Strawberry Rum
- 2 parts Cranberry Juice
- 1 1/2 parts Pineapple Juice
Rim a double-old fashioned glass with strawberry sugar and add 3-4 ice cubes. Combine all ingredients in a shaker filled with ice. Pour into the glass and enjoy.
