"When Life Gives You Lemons"

Everyone has a bad day sometimes, when you’ve been let down or you need to move on with your life you can use a little emotional pick-me-up every once in a while. Somethings that works for us are to either have some ice-cream in the afternoon, go on a random stroll while snap some pictures with our analogues or watch a hilarious tv series on cable (Modern Family, for example :p).

You might never know, inspirational quotes will pop out somewhere unthinkable when you most needed. It’s not hard to find those inspirational quotes, but you may have to read a few before you find one or two that strikes a chord with you. Our favorite is a “When life gives-slash-hands-slash-throws you lemons” quotes. It’s fun yet witty and sometimes so true it hurts (whoops!)

Here are some of our favorites lemons-related quotes we found – hopefully, this list will help to turn your bad day around and make it great!

Bon Appétit!: Our Favorite Mojito

Mojito is a famous cocktail from Cuba. It has a refreshing taste and it could reminds you of summer. We love Mojito so much, we always wanted to try to make one ourself. This weekend, we finally experimented with some recipes we found on the internet and modified it a little.

The ingredients are mint leaves, lime, lemon, a chilled soda water, and simple syrup. First, you chop some of the mint leaves and put aside the rest for garnish. Then you slice the lemon and lime. Next, add the chopped mint leaves, the sliced lemon and lime into the glass. Pour the chilled soda water about half of the glass and add 3 to 4 tbsp of simple syrup (we used Monin‘s Mojito Mint instead). Stir well. Add some ice as desired and put some mint leaves and a slice of lemon as a garnish. If you want, you can sprinkle 1 tsp of brown sugar (ssst… this is our secret ingredient!) into the glass.

Tadaa! It’s done!

This recipe is a non-alcohol kind (Virgin Mojito) but if you want, you can add a shot of rum.

 

 

Bon appétit!
