Share Six: March 2021: Frozen

It’s March and time for Share Six. Still trying to keep with the simple themes, that everyone can be a part of Kathy of KG Ledbetter Photography chose the theme {Frozen}. For anyone above Florida, frozen seemed like a good choice, but in Florida the weather is 86F and there is nothing frozen about it unless I am inside the freezer.

I had to wonder what my options were. I thought about trying to make ice bubbles in the freezer, but I was not sure that it would work. Right now we have our kids living with us temporarily and that means the freezer is full up with everyone’s stuff. I also through of freezing flowers but that really did not work for me. Below is my one and only attempt. I love fresh flowers and it did not feel right to me to freeze them.

So I had to put my thinking cap on again. What is frozen in South Florida. Drinks, of course! What better than to have a cool refreshing drink on a hot, hot day. So here is my take on the frozen theme. I will confess only one of the drinks is alcoholic and it really tasted good. But with Richard just out of hospital, Amy not able to have anything alcoholic right now, Daniel who is not a big drinker and me who only really drinks beer, there seemed no reason to make anything alcoholic.

For the first drink I used an Ice Drink, Strawberry Kiwi Flavor, and mixed it with ice in the blender and added to the biggest wine glass in my collection. I then topped it with a strawberry and some pomegranate seeds. It actually tasted pretty neat. I imagine you could add something alcoholic to it if you wanted but it was pretty refreshing on it’s own.

For my one and only alcoholic drink, I made decaf Hazelnut ice cubes and once they had set added them to the mug and poured Bailey’s over it. It definitely gave it a pretty nice flavor.

For a refreshing drink, I froze melon, cantaloupe and watermelon balls in the freezer over night. I mixed that with a sparkling water and topped it with crushed ice and decorated with lime and mint. I loved the colorful effect of this drink.

Next I chose to make a Blue Powerade mixed with crushed ice and topped with Organic Blueberries and decorated with lime and mint. I love this glass that we were given in the year 2000. The numbers make up part of the stem. The flute is so fine, that I rarely use it for fear of breaking it.

Mojito’s is one of Richard’s favorite drinks, but since he is not drinking, I tried to just come up with something similar. Crushed ice with Roses Lime juice, and topped with additional lime in one of my old fashioned champagne glasses. As kids I remember us drinking Roses lime juice fairly regularly, so this was another refreshing drink to have on hand.

Lastly is my take on a Mimosa. Orange Juice and champagne just do not work for me, they give me terrible heartburn, but I love the look of the drink. So I mixed an orange Gatorade with crushed ice and garnished it with some cantaloupe and lime and poured into one of my cristal d’arques Longchamp crystal flute that I had begun collecting prior to getting married. This is probably the only set of crystal that is not broken.

So that is my take on the {Frozen}theme. I am looking forward to seeing what the rest of the group come up with and to see all the snow that everyone else but South Florida is enjoying.

This is a circle blog and as I mentioned, we have some very talented ladies in the group. The sneak peaks are stunning and I cannot wait to see the rest. Take some time to follow the links and see what they have for you this month. My incredibly artistic friend Kathy of KG Ledbetter Photography is up next. I would encourage to have a look at what she has to offer. You can see more of her work by clicking on her Facebook page or Instagram page.
