Who else is using this time to master the art of perfecting their favorite cocktail? I’ve been over here trying to become an expert at putting together a tequila sunrise (legit even got fancy grenadine syrup), but TBH, I’m far from taking Wells Adams’ job on Bachelor in Paradise. As for actress Bria Vinaite, she decided to use some quarantine work on her mojito recipe on our recent episode of Stir Crazy and I think she might’ve actually succeeded in creating perfection.
To start off, she mixed sugar and water together in a bowl because apparently, that’s a step in the process of creating a mojito. (The more you know!!) She set that aside and went over to her lime trees and grabbed a few! We love a gal who grows her own fruit. She then sliced them up into wedges and threw them into a measuring cup because who just has a muddler set lying around?
Not only does Bria produce her own limes, but she also grows vegetables! This woman is inspiring me to be not only a mixologist but also…a gardener. Keepin’ me domestic. She goes over to her mint plant, picks some, and adds it to her measuring cup along with the limes. Then she gets that sugar and water concoction she made first and adds that in. It’s finally time to stir and mash all that together!
Once all the ingredients in the bowl have been mushed and mixed and melted together, she has two glasses prepared and puts the very fresh contents right inside both. And for the BEST part (arguably my favorite part), right after, Bria pours a LOTTTTT of vodka and some club soda into the drink. And ta-da! A cocktail that looks healthy and will make you feel even better. If ya know what I’m sayin’. 😏
