Citrus Eden recipe
Scan me to take me with you
A very herbal tasting drink, yet sweet, cold & refreshing. A blend of citrus with a distinctive green hue that tantalizes ones senses while everyone else turns green with envy of such a pretty drink.
Very Simple, makes between 3 - 5 drinks:
Fill average to large blender with ice (yet leave enough room to get the lid on!)
Pour in Svedka Clementine (or citrus flavored vodka) over the ice and fill between the quarter & half mark on the blender's mesurement collumn.
Splash in some orange juice until the fluid surrounding the ice resembles an orange juice shade of yellow. *(more or less depending upon taste)
Pluck leaves from the sprigs of mint & lemon verbena/lemon balm leaving the top most tiny leaves on the sprig. Do not throw away the sprig because it is a nice garnish to plant into the drink next to a straw for some added asthetic.
Add leaves of both mint & lemon verbena/lemon balm. to the top of mixture already in blender. Allow your blender to pulse/mix vigorously until the mixture resembles an avocado colored slush. Pour into your favorite long stem glass (margarita or costume wine glasses look best) and adorn with a lime slice and/or the sprigs from mint or lemon verbena/lemon balm. for a professional touch, a cocktail umbrella or a colored straw also sets this drink off well.
