gluten free orange fizzie cocktail width=

Today while I was in the kitchen working on some experimental recipes, I decided to make cocktails for my younger son and myself.

I pulled out two large tumblers and asked my little guy to grab a bottle of sparkling water from the dining room.  He came back with the requested water and “fancy” glasses, wanting me to make our beverages a little more upscale.  Of course, I obliged.

Orange Fizzie Cocktail

  • 3 ice cubes
  • 6 ounces sparkling water
  • 2 ounces fresh squeezed orange juice
  1. Place ice cubes in glass
  2. Pour sparkling water over ice cubes
  3. Top with orange juice
  4. Garnish with fresh fruit if desired

Serves 1 (for two people, double recipe)

Full credit for this photo goes to my younger son.  While I was in my office (our former laundry room, it’s just off the kitchen), he commandeered my camera and set up this photo shoot, organizing the backgrounds, etc.  He is 9 years old and I wish I could take a picture that is as good as his.  He is quite the artist and does amazing drawings and water colors.

Here is a message from my little sweetie, “I’m glad to be able to take pictures on my mom’s website.”  My older son’s baseball tournament continues and we’re off to see tonight’s game!
