Organic Beach Day

With the summer weather upon us there is no better way to spend a day with friends than out on the beach. Its fun, relaxing and you get to soak up all the goodness mother nature has to provide, Why not step it up a notch. Get an earlier start to the day and find your local farmers market and pick up some fresh fruit and veggies for the day (link for famers markets). If you cant find one near you, stop by your local whole foods or healthy market and pick up some great tasting healthy snacks. If your looking to get a little crazy make a nice organic alcoholic beverage mix, place it in a plastic container(since we dont want glass on our beaches), and party the day away. Here is a recipe from our friends on South Beach for a great drink for the day. The Mojito Beach Berry:

1 drink
4 organic blackberries
4 mint sprigs
3 organic lime wedges
1 1/2 ounces silver rum
1 oragnic Lime wedge
1 Mint sprig
Lemon lime soda
1. Muddle blackberries, mint sprigs and lime wedges in a highball glass
2. Add organic silver rum
3. Fill with ice
4. Top with lemon lime soda
5. Garnish with lime wedge and mint sprig

Have a great day out there and be safe!
