“ROSEMARY CITRUS SPRITZER WITH COCONUT ROCKET CAKE”

Its Double Delight treat day you all, I get to share two recipes with you today to brighten your weekend and cool off from the long hectic week.

Topping our Double Delight treat chart today, I present to you a lovely cocktail – known as Rosemary Citrus Spritzer and a nice snack – Coconut Rocket Cake

I don’t have a sweet tooth but I love to drink a lot of soda which isn’t quite healthy moreover I really need to burn the fat away from Chubbyrefo to Slimmyrefo….Yay yay Rosemary Citrus Spritzer to my rescue…finally it’s about to go down.

Rosemary Citrus Spritzer is an incredibly refreshing drink infused with lemon, orange and wonderfully subtle, yet fragrant rosemary leaves.

Rosemary is a fragrant evergreen herb native to the Mediterranean. It is used as a culinary condiment, to make bodily perfumes, and for its potential health benefits.It is also a good source of iron, calcium and Vitamin B6

It is a rich source of antioxidant; it helps in improving digestion, enhances memory, prevents infection, aids in hair growth and improves skin….now you know why I shine bright like a Diamond. Rosemary leaves can be found in our major groceries stores and malls.

Least I forget Rosemary is a wonderful herb for seasoning chicken, lamb dishes and Omelets, Frittatas and Baked Potatoes.

A bit of Honey in our Rosemary Citrus Spritzer tops off this out- of -the world Spritzer and I couldn’t be happier with the result.

Our Coconut rocket cakes can be enjoyed by everyone most especially kids and can be served at parties and other occasions.

Enjoy and make sure you try these recipes at home…Have a great weekend people.
