Cocktail and Art Pairing


Need a fresh bevvy to spice up the middle of the week? I have a new mocktail that is sure to delight! I started with Pretty Plain Jane's pin earlier this week to use grapefruit and limes and added my own twists.  I like to pair flavors and colors to add to the experience of a painting. I concocted this beverage to pair with a new piece, "Tart"! This painting provided the perfect inspiration- the tart citrus with the sweet raspberries contrast nicely like the colors of the painting. Bold raspberry hues tart with crisp turquoise and lime flavor this painting with delicious color and an exciting viewing experience. Trot on over to the website to see this little lovely in person. But before you do, mix up this little fizzy to drink while you view!

Grapefruit Tart Fizzy  {makes 1}

1 Grapefruit
1 lime
tsp raw sugar
4-6 raspberries
ice cubes
club soda (or tonic water)

Squeeze 1/2 grapefruit and 1/2 lime and pour juice into glass. Stir in sugar. Add ice cubes, slice of lime, slice of grapefruit, and raspberries. Top with club soda. For extra pizazz: rub a lime wedge over the rim of glass before mixing drink and press into granulated sugar to coat the rim.

Enjoy!!
