Welcome the Virtual Vegan Potluck Post. Today is a great day to find New Blogs and find some Amazing Vegan Recipes.

So a few weeks back on An Unrefined Vegan’s Blog she posted this amazing idea for hosting an Eight Course Virtual Vegan Potluck, as soon as I read it I knew I had to join in. I am not Vegan, but the Potluck was open to all bloggers as long as they followed the Vegan guidelines while preparing their recipe for the Potluck. I truly appreciate being included.

This sign-up list just kept getting bigger and bigger every day. I know I am really excited to read all the posts for the Potluck, I love to look at other people’s blogs and their style of writing posts and how they post recipes, I think it really helps me become a better blogger and a healthier eater.

My first thought was to contribute with a Cocktail. I love preparing a good cocktail and Vodka is my drink of choice. Plus I wanted to leave the Vegan Recipes to the Experts. I am so excited about all the new recipes that will be available through this potluck. Makes me hungry just thinking about all the Luscious Vegan Recipes.

I wanted to make a drink that was light fresh and tart so here’s what I came up with.

Please Enjoy My Cocktail

Vodka Ginger Cherry Zinger 

Grab your favorite Vodka. If you have a drink shaker grab that as well.

Grab your juices and some frozen blackberries.

Cheribundi is a fabulous juice, there are 50 cherries in each drink with an-abundance of antioxidants and nutrients.

In the shaker I added two ice cubes and all the ingredients.

Now shake, shake, shake.

Add the frozen blackberries into the glass and pour the drink from the shaker into the glass.

Realized I needed more blackberries as I started to pour, so I stopped and added a few more and then continued to pour the drink into the glass.

I just love the vibrant red from the cherry juice and the deep dark red from the blackberries. I am always attracted to foods by their color.

Salute! Here’s to a wonderful Virtual Vegan Potluck.
