It's been about 3 years since my trip to California. This post was suppose to go up forever ago but I somehow never got around to hitting the publish button.

Anywho my husband and I had so much fun visiting family, exploring Santa Monica, and celebrating my cousin wedding. Although it was a short trip we definitely made the most of every moment.


While visiting the Santa Monica Pier we decided to stop by this beautiful hotel with large bay windows for drinks before heading to visit family.

And boy am I glad we did. Not only was the hotel beautiful but the walk to the hotel was breath taking.

I'm originally from California but it has been a while since I have seen California architecture. Every time I visit I'm reminded how much I love {textured and smooth} stucco buildings. They're just classic, distinctive, and beautiful.

While at the hotel we had a great conversation with the bartender {he was a really cool guy}. I ordered this amazing pear drink with rosemary that I don't think my taste buds will ever be able to forget.

Anyhow it really inspired me to start creating my own concoctions at home. I wanted to share the recipe to my favorite fizzy mocktails at home.


Sparkling Lemonade Mocktail

Ingredients
  • Ice
  • Lemon
  • Sugar
  • 1.5 oz Frozen Lemonade Concentrate
  • 10 ounces of soda (Blood orange Italian soda, Sprite, or 7UP)
  • Garnishes lemon, orange, or lime

Instructions
  1. Fill a large glass halfway with ice.
  2. Rub the rim of the glass with a lemon.
  3. Pour sugar in a large bowl, and dip the rim of the glass in sugar.

If you want to spice this drink up add equal amount of sparkling white wine. I have made this drink for several parties over the years and it is always a big hit. Don't forget to give this recipes a try at home.
