Stay Organized and Get it All Done!


This blog post corresponds with my YouTube channel, Embellish Life. If you subscribe to my Embellish Life Channel you will be notified by email when new videos come up. I post a new video every week. I always have a signature cocktail, wine or beverage on each of my videos and will post the recipe (if needed) here on my blog.

This weeks video is about staying organized and getting everything done in our busy lives. I know if I don’t utilize my tip (have to watch the video if you want to know what it is), I find myself feeling anxious and completely scatter brained. As soon as I put my tip into play I get an immediate sense of relaxation, accomplishment and inspiration that I will be able to handle anything that is thrown at me. Check out the video and see if my tip can help you too.

The cocktail for this week was Stone Fruit & Ginger White Sangria I found it in the Clean Eating Magazine, July/August 2014. See the recipe below:

Stone Fruit & Ginger White Sangria

Juice of 2 navel oranges (or any fresh orange juice about 1/2 cup)
Juice of 1 lemon
24 sweet cherries (frozen is fine)
1 peach, pitted and slice
1 red plum, pitted and sliced
1 4″ piece of ginger pealed and thinly sliced
1 1/2 cup white wine
3 cups (about a can) of ginger-ale (I use diet)
2 cups sparkling water

1. In a large pitcher, combine orange juice, lemon juice, cherries, peach, plum, ginger and wine siring gently. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour; overnight is better, lets the fruit infuse.

2. To serve, add ginger-ale and sparkling water and pour over ice.

Serving size is 1 1/4 cups calories is 110 but a lot less if you use diet ginger-ale.
