Yule Thank Me Later

I cannot believe October is almost over and next week is Halloween! October is my favorite month and so I am a little sad about it ending but then we will be right into the swing of the holidays! I have the perfect libation to get you in the mood to jingle some bells. Or cut some turkey. Or you know, to help you deal with your relatives you want to hide from;)


I had been looking for a drink that would do well at both Thanksgiving and Christmas and one that is not too high in sugar as I am trying to watch my waistline and it is rather difficult this time of year. I found the answer though and there is no lacking in taste what you give up in calories when you use Steviva products.  This concoction is absolutely delicious. You could also make this as a cocktail and forgo the alcohol.

The base of this drink is just that: a base. Once you create the base, you can make a multitude of flavors and drinks and it is definitely more simple than it looks!


Yule Thank Me Later

Base
1 to 1 1/2 cup fresh cranberries
1 large orange (or 2 small)
1 1/2 tbsp Fructevia
1/2 tbsp Nectevia

drink
1 1/2 oz bourbon (chilled)
2 oz ginger beer (chilled)

In a small saucepan, add the cranberries, juice from the orange (make sure to squeeze out as much as you can) Fructevia, Nectevia, and 2 or 3 pieces of orange peel. Let simmer for about 10 minutes.  Once it has broken down to the texture of a compote, let cool. After about a half hour, push the cranberry/orange compote mixture through a mesh sieve. With the puree you have left, using a spoon, place 2-3 tablespoons in a glass.  Top with bourbon. Stir. Finish off with ginger beer and enjoy!


This whole drink takes about half an hour from start to finish but with only about 5 minutes of hands-on work. It really is simple but tastes like the holidays. I have made a lot of libations and I think this may be my favorite so far. The tartness of the cranberry is muted by the sweetness of the Fructevia and Nectevia additions and they pair so well together with the bourbon and the final bite of ginger beer! You can always do this to taste and use less or more of the Steviva products or ginger beer. The best part of making your own cocktails at home is that you control the taste! Forgo the bourbon for a family-friendly treat.

and thanks to Beth for the pics!

I am in love with all of these Steviva products.  They taste great with no aftertaste like you often find in some low sugar alternatives. You can find more about their products at www.steviva.com

  2. I Finally Got Helped  !! I'm so excited right now, I just have to share my testimony on this Forum.. The feeling of being loved takes away so much burden from our shoulders. I had all this but I made a big mistake when I cheated on my wife with another woman  and my wife left me for over 4 months after she found out..  I was lonely, sad and devastated. Luckily I was directed to a very powerful spell caster Dr Emu who helped me cast a spell of reconciliation on our Relationship and he brought back my wife and now she loves me far more than ever.. I'm so happy with life now. Thank you so much Dr Emu, kindly Contact  Dr Emu Today and get any kind of help you want..
