Here are some tips for making the best cocktails with vodka.

  • Use fresh ingredients. This is especially important for the citrus juices and herbs that are often used in vodka cocktails. Fresh ingredients will give your cocktails a brighter flavor and make them more appealing visually.
  • Chill your glasses. This will help to keep your cocktails cold and refreshing. You can chill your glasses in the refrigerator or freezer for about 30 minutes before serving.
  • Use high-quality vodka. This will make a big difference in the taste of your cocktails. Look for a vodka that is made from wheat or rye, as these vodkas tend to have a cleaner flavor.
  • Don't over-mix your cocktails. Over-mixing can dilute the flavor of your cocktails and make them watery. Give your cocktails a gentle stir until the ingredients are combined.
  • Garnish your cocktails. Garnishes can add flavor, visual appeal, and aroma to your cocktails. Some popular garnishes for vodka cocktails include citrus slices, herbs, and edible flowers.

I would love to hear which of these recipes you want to try first. I think I would love the apple pie a la mode cocktail.

15+ Winter Books for Preschoolers

The winter Rolf was 3, it was cold! We spent a lot of time curled up in his tiny little boy bedroom with stacks of books at our elbows. We read everything we could get our hands on in his tiny room, where it was the warmest!

Well, here we are again, in the midst of winter, and I happen to have another preschooler to snuggle up with and read the cold days away with! This year, we have picked 15 books that we felt like we MUST READ and I am happy to share our list with you for winter reading with your little one.
