A strong, aromatic coffee mixed with dreamy caramel sauce (extra points if you make your own!) and creamy milk, all topped off with a generous dollop of whipped cream and even more caramel sauce because why not? This Starbucks caramel brulee latte copycat recipe tastes exactly like the real thing, but it’s much cheaper, quicker and easier to make.
I can’t hold back any longer – we’re now a whole week into the month of May which only means one thing to me. Summer is almost here! Okay, so I live by the sea on an island where it’s pretty warm and sunny all the the time. (I’m not bragging, just giving you some context!) But there’s just something about the actual summer season that makes lazy days at the beach, sunbathing by the pool and enjoying fancy cocktails on the patio so much more fun when I know the rest of the world (or most of the northern hemisphere, anyway) is sharing it with me, you know? And if there is one flavour that screams summer more to me than any other flavour out there, it’s got to be lime!
Sleepless nights, being covered in bodily fluids that aren’t yours and bottle feeds every couple of hours. This is my life right now. Nope – I don’t have a newborn in the house (although I wish I did, I think it might be easier!) I’ve got three orphaned kittens who are 19 days old today. My boyfriend and I volunteer for a charity which traps then spays/neuters wild cats and fosters kittens until they’re old enough to be adopted. We’ve had these kittens since the very same day they were born and let me tell you – the cuteness factor is starting to wear off now.
You know what I’m really getting into? Mocktails. I’m not drinking them instead of regular cocktails (like that would ever happen!) but I’m drinking them throughout the day as a way of livening up the ordinary still water that I usually drink. And whilst I’d always opt for the alcoholic version if it’s a weekend, a non alcoholic strawberry mojito is awesome to sip at my desk during the working week.
Drum roll please – this is the very first mocktail recipe I’ve ever posted on Pink Recipe Box! Like I said last week, I’m still on a bit of an alcohol detox, so instead of sharing my customary cocktail recipe with you this Friday, I thought I’d share a healthier lower-calorie virgin mojito recipe that’s just as good as the original. And here it is!
