BLUEBERRY LEMON AND CUCUMBER GIN MOJITOS

I hope you guys aren’t getting sick of collaborative content, because today’s post is a collaboration with a good blogging chum of mine, Dana over at the pesco-vegetarian blog Killing Thyme. Dana’s blog may sound familiar because I’ve mentioned it a few times here at JustineCelina. First, I linked to her Caring for Cast Iron tips back in my Carrot Cashew Zoodles with Crispy Sesame Tofu post. She was also on board for our #FBCconnectingovercocktails collaboration, where I shared the recipe for my Rosé Lychee Elderflower Sangria and she created a delicious Pineapple Pepper Punch.

Dana and I met last year through The Food Bloggers of Canada and you could say we became fast blogging friends — we clicked right away. I love Dana’s zest for life that’s wildly apparent in her content, her voice and authenticity, her generosity, and of course, her fantastic recipes and culinary knowledge! You see, Dana has been at this whole blogging thing a lot longer than I have and she’s always been so supportive of what I’m doing. In short, she’s a an absolute gem and I’m sure you’ll love her content and her blog just as much as I do! Pop over to check out my guest post and grab the recipe for my Blueberry Lemon and Cucumber Gin Mojitos. Cheers to sharing the love, to new blogs and new friends!

My Blueberry Lemon and Cucumber Gin Mojitos combine sweet blueberries with refreshing lemon, cucumber and mint. A healthy dose of gin unites the flavour profiles of these late summer sippers and a splash of soda water adds just the right amount of sparkle. My gin mojitos are free of refined sugars and made with all natural ingredients — so the next time you’re craving a cooling summer cocktail, indulge yourself with a fresh twist on the classic mojito! Here’s a sneak peek of what you’ll find over at Killing Thyme, along with the recipe. Head on over and tell Dana I sent you!

    Everything about this makes me so happy! I am extremely grateful for your time and brilliance, Justine. Being able to have such stunning content on my blog is an honor. I’m so glad FBC allowed us to cross paths. You’re mega inspo; your content is always gorgeous and something about your blog just makes me feel good. It’s got A+ vibes, my friend! Can’t wait for more! Until then, keep being the unicorn that you are! (Sean and I seriously decided that you are the blog world’s unicorn in a conversation one day. The things you do, and in such a cool and collective manner, is magical. Haha.)

      Well you’ve officially been awarded for best blog comment ever, Dana! This blog is my happy place and I’m glad it can bring others joy and inspiration as well — that’s what it’s all about for me. Honestly I could have gushed for forever about what a pleasure it’s been to get to know you. Again, thank you so much for the guest posting opportunity and I look forward to more collaborative work with Killing Thyme. Also, I will totally take the title of ‘blog world’s unicorn’! 😛 Cheers, girl!

    Justine! These are crazy gorgeous … love the floral ice cubes and the softly matching-ness! Mmm looks so refreshing. Blog pals are the best because they understand!!! 🙂 (also, you should hit up Tanqueray with this post because they SHOULD be sponsoring you! Such a pretty post!)

    • Reply Justine August 19, 2016 at 5:31 pm

      Lyndsay, thank you so much. These kind of compliments coming from YOU are always so nice to read. Maybe I’ll touch base with Tanqueray’s PR, haha! Thanks for the love. 😉 Going to pop over to Coco Cake Land tomorrow morning with a fresh coffee and see what you’ve been up to lately. Cheers!

    These photos are stunning! I love how composed this drink is without being stuffy. The colour, the flower ice cubes, the glasses even. All perfectly on point.

    • Reply Justine August 19, 2016 at 5:33 pm

      Thank you, Samantha! That’s a wonderful compliment. I love things to be styled but still fun and playful — I’m happy I struck that balance. 🙂 I’m totally in love with this crystal glassware from HomeSense, I even picked it up in clear for a margarita recipe I’m working on! Thanks for stopping by for a cocktail. 😉

    I love the photos in this post Justine! They are so pretty!

    • Reply Justine August 19, 2016 at 5:31 pm

      Thanks, Shaerba — they were a lot of fun to make (and drink, of course!). Cheers! Have a great weekend.

    Well hey there unicorn. 🙂

    You’ve knocked another one out of the park. Superb flavours, and a wonderful mixture of sweet, green, and bright. It’s kind of funny because you’ve got all these flavour pairings that are already so good on their own (blueberry lemon, blueberry gin, cucumber gin, cucumber mint) and then they’re all together and it all sounds SO good. It’s haaaaawt here today, and I could REALLY go for one of these right now!

    • Reply Justine August 19, 2016 at 7:17 pm

      Haha, thanks Sean! Your comments never fail to bring some light to my day. 🙂 If you do try the recipe I’d love your feedback. Also, I’m going to pop over to check out your ahi tuna and watermelon skewers shortly! Cheers, my friend!
