Here’s a depressing thought: I believed I was the creator of the word “faux-jito” and “mocktail.” It turns out I’m not. Womp womp.
Miami Music Week is upon us! For the next 5 days you can find me serving a cabana full of schwasted party-goers in the midst of blaring techno music. Sounds fun, right? ::Naht::
Even though I’m required to be around alcohol at work, I’m not a drinker myself. Drunk people tend to be very obnoxious. And repetitive. And pukey- ugh. If you’ve been following me for awhile then I think you already know how fond I am of mocktails (non-alcoholic cocktails.) I rarely drink soda, so when I make one of these for myself when I’m around people who DO drink, then it’s a real treat. I feel more comfortable with my hands around a fun drink- somehow it takes the awkward omg-how-do-I-hangout-sober part out of the equation.
So if you are new to Paleo and feel really weird not drinking in social situations, then seriously try this Blackberry Faux-jito recipe! It can even be made into a pitcher by quadrupling the recipe for when you are hosting a summertime party. And whatever, if you MUST add alcohol to the recipe, then just double the amount of honey and add slightly less soda water.
But don’t blame me when you have a hangover. That’s all on you, boo.
