Ginger Berry Blasters

I know I know I have been neglecting this blog terribly.

The problem is I don’t measure things when I cook so it is really hard to write a concrete recipe. Will have to get some new measuring cups and make sure I do it properly. That and the fact time seems to vanish.

Anyway I have been thinking a lot about how many additives and things are in our food and drink.

I am seriously contemplating learning to make my own ginger syrup/cordial as I have fallen in love with this simple easy and delish drink.

It is so simple to create

Crush a couple of handfulls of frozen raspberries in a container with a fork or spoon

Pour over the ginger refresher cordial to just over the top of your crushed raspberries
(to the Americans reading this its like a flavour syrup for water not alcoholic)

Mix well

Put the lid on your container and put in the fridge for a few hours to let the flavours meld together (this gets better the longer you leave it after a few days it goes from ginger with raspberries to raspberry with a hint of ginger)

Take your glass. Pour in about 1/4 mineral or soda water (I use mineral water)

Spoon in 2-3 teaspoons full of your mix (it may take more depending on glass size and strength of flavours)

Stir well

Slowly top up with more mineral water

Sit back, sip and enjoy.

It is quite lovely as someone who is not a big drinker to sit down and have something pretty to drink with dinner it turns it into more of an event.


About heavenlyimaginings

A crafter from the time I was a small child. My love of crafting has developed into a passion for making Artist Original Bears, Scrapbooking, making fascinators and hair accessories, as well as dabbling in other bits and pieces such as making the occasional small bag. I craft on a budget. Try and reuse and recycle where I can (I wish I lived closer to a big reverse cycle garbage type place). In truth I play when I craft. It is such an adventure. Often do not spend time looking for tutorials and tips online preffering to meander though in my own way. After all if you do not know the rules then you have no problems breaking all of them. Have to be honest and say I truly love being pushed out of my creative comfort zone, as it is in those moments that you have to stretch yourself and your imagination that often you create the most amazing works of art. Also passionate about Spirituality. I discovered my psychic gifts at age 19 and have walked along the spiritual path for 19 years now.
