We are stressed. All the things that go into building a house, its just stressful. It’s easy to get distracted by those things, by life, by the stressors in our lives. We get bogged down by the kids and routines, or lack of routines and life just becomes hectic. When we both start snipping and it just seems to be too much; that’s when I know we without a doubt need to get a way.
We need a break, not a family break, but an adult break. You know what I am talking about? I don’t want to hear “Mom, Dad” every five seconds, or the whining, complaining. I need to adult for a little while. Sometimes we forget how to adult. We forget how to just be us and not parents or the people building a house, providing a home for our family, how to be a couple. This adulting thing can take some serious work sometimes. But seriously, how do we adult? It’s hard to pull ourselves away from schedules, from the kids, from work and just take time for us.
The best way I have found that is for us to adult, is to literally wear the child out so that she can go to bed early and we get Mommy and Daddy time. I pick out a movie and we plan dinner just for us and then, we make a special drink that is a destination all for us. We take a trip to our couch with our favorite meal, a good Rom-Com and a tasty drink that helps us to relax and enjoy the evening and ourselves. We don’t have anyone tugging on us, or asking questions, but we just laugh and enjoy each other.
We like to experiment with different food recipes, but today we are experimenting with an adult drink recipe that we are calling Boozy Blueberry Lemonade. It’s like blueberry lemonade but just for adults. Hhehehehehe. Recently we had the opportunity to try CH Distillery’s Peppercorn Vodka. I know you are thinking “blueberries and peppercorn?”, but trust me the simple syrup in this peppercorn vodka makes a spicy-sweet combination that is really tasty. Not to mention its a beautiful drink with an amazing smooth flavor. Perfect for adulting time and setting back and just relaxing.
We made a homemade blueberry syrup of blueberries, sugar, lemon slices and water, and let it boil until boiling and smooth. I strained out the blueberry chunks for a smooth sauce. This sauce has so many applications! I also froze blueberries into ice cubes and put those in tall glass with 2 oz of CH Distillery Peppercorn Vodka. I added in some homemade lemonade. Then using a squeeze bottle I added in the desired amount of blueberry syrup. The result was a beautiful drink with a purple haze. The taste was amazing! The Vodka is very smooth and pairs well with this flavor profile, leaving a hint of spicy on your tongue after the initial sweet. This is going to be a favorite adult drink for a while in our house!
