Raspberry Mint Tart

It’s been more than 3 weeks since I started this blog, so theoretically, blogging cocktails has become a habit. The next hurdle will be the 3 month mark because most bloggers become discouraged and throw in the proverbial bar towel, and I’ve been working to prevent the discouragement by keeping my expectations low and “publicizing” as much as I can. And I’ve been fortunate to be featured by some amazing blogs/websites and people whom I’d like to thank:

The Boys Club
Craft Bits
Food Blogger Connect
Shrimp Salad Circus
Taste Spotting
This Nifty Earth

And of course there are all the people who’ve commented, pinned, liked, followed, tweeted, etc. Without y’all giving me a bit of encouragement, I’d be doomed because while it’s nice to be featured, the features aren’t a daily occurrence, so thank you, thank you, thank you!

So for all my supporters who are (unknowingly) helping me through my next big challenge, I’d like to offer today’s cocktail inspired by Michael’s (Verses from My Kitchen) Raspberry Mint Tart – it’s sweet and refreshing just like you!


In a Collins glass, muddle 5-6 mint leaves with ½ tsp of sugar.

Add about 2” of crushed ice and pour ½ oz Chambord and ½ oz amaretto.

Fill the rest of the glass with crushed ice and pour 1 oz white rum.

Top with sparkling water.

Garnish with a few mint leaves and serve with a straw.

If you’re new to this blog (as I’m sure you are), please click around for more cocktails, and follow me on Pinterest for all the latest!

I’m going to need all the encouragement (and sippy cups) I can get!

    • Aw, thank you! I was actually encouraged to do an Instructable for beginner food/drink photography a couple weeks ago, and you can find it here: http://www.instructables.com/id/Food-Photography-for-Beginners/

      However, there are loads of other tutorials and tips online, and you can get a lot of great inspiration from the food porn sites and various photography sites (e.g., 500px and Flickr). And then there’s a lot of inspiring stuff on general photography sites such as DIYPhotography.net.

      Hope it helps! 😀
