I could have never thought of myself as a loner. I have always been a people person, I love to chat n chat n chat. I do see a new avatar of myself growing in the last few years, almost threatening to take over the chatty me. I have begun to enjoy quiet moments with myself, observing the smells, sounds and colors and of course light around me. I just can’t get enough of how beautiful the silent word is, the mild wisp of breeze, the subtle rustling of leaves…the bird chirping at a distance…it’s all too beautiful. The stream that has no were to go, the trail that urges you to follow the untrodden path. There is no hurry, there is no busy, there are no schedules in nature’s calendar. There is a calm,  a sense of being. We all need some time to unwind and to connect. Spring and summer nights are spent star gazing and dreaming… And when I am gazing at the stars and looking at the deep blu skies, am usually sipping ice tea or lemonade or a sangria. Raspberry Lemonade or a raspberry sangria is a family favorite and is perfect refreshing drink for hot summer.

I add some mint, raspberries in the ice cubes and freeze them, they add to the flavor and look so  pretty.

For the lemonade



1/2 cup rasberries
1/4 cup brown sugar or honey
1inch ginger ( optional)
1/4  or more cup lemon juice
4-5 cups water (cold)
crushed mint leaves
Ice cubes with frozen raspberries and mint leaves

If you want to make Sangria replace the water with 3 cups white wine and 2 cups club soda, if you want you can skip the soda.

Blend and strain the raspberries and ginger. Mix the rest and serve chilled. Mix in some slices of lemon and raspberries and crushed mint leaves.

  3. those drinks just look gorgeous! I'll take both..
    I've started to enjoy my alone time too - which is bizarre since I've always been such a social person. I chalk it up to being older and all that.. but wiser too! :)
