Beverages

I've had my eyes open for non-dairy milk/creamer substitute for a long time now. I think I've found a great option in Ripple. I bought the Unsweetened flavour because I wanted the true taste, not a coverup. No offence to the other flavours, which include, Original, Vanilla & Chocolate. Ripple also comes in a kids to-go size of 8 FL OZ, which would be perfect for anyone on-the-go.

The flavour of the Unsweetened Ripple Pea Milk, is very mild & subtle. There is a slight aftertaste but it does not linger.

The consistency is very thick but smooth. If you do not like the thickness of whole milk or cream, you may not like this beverage. You could also use Ripple for baking or cooked cereal.

I've also been looking for an alternative for dairy milk/creamer for my coffee & tea. Ripple was great & the first alternative that I actually liked. It has a thicker consistency, with a very light taste so it was a perfect creamer, that did not overtake my coffee.

Price: $8.49 for a 48 FL OZ bottle. Pricey for a family of four. A great option if you are just an occasional milk drinker or for your daily coffee and tea. If it's in your budget, give it try. If not there are other options. Prices may vary by store and country.

Gin is my favourite hard liquor. Does that make me an old lady? Oh well, I enjoy it. Vodka, I just wanted to try another hard liquor, for this DIY project. I didn't make the Gin or Vodka (I'm not that good, yet). The DIY is adding the cherry flavour. Watch the (sped up) 4-ish month process, here.

What I like about the end result:

The cherry flavour, in both the gin & vodka, was amazing. Nice and strong.

The lime rind infused into the vodka was tasty as well. Not overwhelming or bitter at all. I might even add a little more next time. Maybe try some other citrus rinds.

What I would change:

I would only do gin next time. The vodka was good but why not stick with my favourite spirit?

I would use half the amount of sugar. Maybe experimenting with no sugar for half of a batch. It was too sweet, which I expected but I add a lot of ice, to tamp down the sweetness.

Would I do this again? Yes

Some ingredients that I use, online: 

Yupik Organic Cane Sugar, 1Kg & Norpro Natural Cheese Cloth
