It has been such a long time since I have shared a recipe here on the blog. For some reason I have this urge to restart blogging this year. I hope to get on a regular schedule soon.  You can expect me to share not just recipes but a lot of photography  tips as well. 

If you are not following me on Instagram - here is a link to my profile. I have shared the BTS ( behind the scenes) video on Instagram Reels. I have shot the above two images with a back light and a reflector lighting the front. The red petunia was shot in golden hour and the drink was shot in mid afternoon. 

The drink itself is extremely simple. 

1 cup mixed berries 
1 inch ginger 
1 cup water 
1/4 cup sugar 

Preparation: Grate the ginger, mox the berries, water and sugar and let it boil and reduce. Blend and strain. Let it cool

For the drink : 
Ingredients: 1 1/2 oz Vodka, 1/6 oz Lime juice, 4 oz Ginger beer, 2 oz berry compote, basil leaves 
Preparation: Combine vodka and ginger beer and berry compote in a  glass filled with ice. Add lime juice. Stir gently and garnish with basil leaf 
Served: On the rocks; poured over ice.
Traditionally it is served in a copper bug, but the color was so beautiful, I decided to serve it in a glass.
