I have always loved entertaining guests. I haven’t always been very good at it but after some trial and error I’d like to think I’ve got some pretty mad skills now.
After moving into our new home we have had quite a few opportunities arise and I’ve been lohohohohoving it! Not only am I in love with my house (minus the fact that I STILL have boxes to unpack carefully hidden in our basement) but the people we have had over are close friends that like to eat. So my people.
And with food usually comes thirst. Considering the fact that we don’t drink alcohol nor do I find it necessary (or wise) to make some sort of punch for the kids very often it’s not typical for me to share drink recipes on the blog. However, now that I’m entertaining a lot more it’s fun to shake things up a bit. (pun totally intended)
I was checking out a few mocktails online, not finding quite what I was looking for I decided to look up some typical cocktails and came across a gin fizz. It was interesting and the fact that it had egg white in it made it that much more intriguing. I loved the frothy texture it added and figured, hey, there may not be alcohol but these could definitely be fit for serving during a party.
I was right. They are so dang fun.
With the addition of the lime juice it helps to “cook” the egg a bit but not enough that it isn’t still considered raw which is why I love me some pasteurized eggs from Safest Choice Eggs! So darn happy to have them in my fridge for these occasions. The kids asked for a sip of my drink and I had no reservations at all to share, minus the fact that they were drinking MY watermelon fizz. But a mother must learn to share in order to teach her young ones to also share. Dang it.
