Essential Oils in Cocktails…WTF?

Well, it’s WTF Wednesday and today I decided to post my new favorite essential oil recipe…. Cocktail Recipe that is.  Why the F*ck haven’t I thought about using Essential Oils in booze before!!!  Yeah… lets combine 2 of my favorite things, and after all that’s what being an essentialoilsgangsta is all about; livin life my way.

 

We named it  “That’s Delightful” first because it was the first thing we said after tasting it.  The second name we thought of was the “New Gin and Juice” but then we remembered that the gin was in the french 75 not this one.  So were back to “That’s Delightful” Although I might change the name if I think of something that makes me laugh out loud. I may have to drink a lot more of them in order to get there though.

Peppermint Simple Syrup

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 15 drops doterra peppermint essential oils

Heat the water and sugar until the sugar dissolves and let cool, then stir in the peppermint oil.  Keep stirring until the peppermint oil actually incorporates into the mixture, don’t just leave it with it floating on the top.  If you’re thinking that oil and water don’t mix, the sugar is an emulsifier, so it will blend, it just takes a little time.

 

To make the Drink

  • 1/8tsp Peppermint Simple Syrup or if you have a pipette, use 10 drops
  • 12oz of Cranberry Juice
  • 2 oz of Champagne

Mix all ingredients and sip the day away, this really is delightful!

 

What Would You Name it?

We took it to an abandoned house to photograph it.  It looked so pretty and with a name like “thats delightful” I had to photograph it in a place that gave it some grit.  Your welcome.
