Strawberry Basil and Blood Orange Drinks

So this was an intriguing set of drinks on the menu I decided to try with my friend for dinner at Vapianos Charlotte the other day.

If you want sweet, don’t order this, but if you don’t like super sweet, this Strawberry Basil Sangria is the drink for you. It is very tart, very vodka tasting, and has a nice hint of basil. The drink is made with Sauvignon Blanc, Stoli Razberi, Stoli Citrus, fresh basil, diced strawberries, and strawberry purée. Mmmm.

Next up is the Blood Orange Margarita. This was my favorite. It was sweeter, with a nice kick at the end of each sip to remind you it was a big girl (or boy) drink! Made with Jose Cuervo, Grand Marnier, Blood Orange juice, sweet & sour mix, and some lime & lime juice, this was a fun twist on your basic margarita! Scrumptious!

I am definitely going to try my own variations of these at home soon to see if I can get them just as good, but if you want some unique drinks, these were some keepers to try, for sure!

Craft You Later,
Beth

  1. Heya! I understand this is kind of off-topic but I
    needed to ask. Does building a well-established blog like yours require a massive amount work?

    I am brand new to blogging however I do write in my diary on
    a daily basis. I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my own experience and feelings online.
    Please let me know if you have any ideas or tips for brand new aspiring
    blog owners. Appreciate it!

    • Hi! So I appreciate the well-established comment, as sometimes it feels like I just write for myself (which I am okay with). Advice I have, and have been given: find something you like to write about, write about it. But go read other posts and comment on them to show you aren’t just all about you too. See what others write about, think, like & say. And always always credit or link back on stuff you grab from elsewhere! Let me know if you start a blog, I love reading people’s stuff! Good luck & hope this helps! -Beth
