Cocktail & Connect WAS SO MUCH FUN!

 

Thank you to everyone that came out to our first official community event of 2021. We are still smiling and laughing from the scavenger hunt and loved getting to know you all in the speed dating. 

All February long we have been focusing on the theme of CONNECTION. It is what spawned the idea for this event. 

But what is connection? 

According to the Oxford English Dictionary, CONNECTION is a relationship in which a person or thing is linked or associated with something else. 

We ALL have one thing in common – our dedication & commitment to movement and if you ask us, we believe we all have a PRETTY AWESOME community to do that with. 

Ongoing research supports the positive health benefits of social connectedness. We, staff and community, have worked hard to stay connected during the pandemic months. I know I can speak for the entire ADF team when I say our virtual programs have provided so much more than a daily workout – it gives us ENERGY, laughs, purpose and new friendships. The best thing to come out of the pandemic is the growth and connectedness of ADF through the Online Hub, Virtual SA, Virtual PT & RT.  Despite being separate, we have still managed to COME TOGETHER.

We know how much you all LOVED the cocktails, so we’re here to share the recipes so you can make them again!

Cocktails

 

Gold Rush

Balanced and delicious, this is one cocktail to always keep in the quiver – it’s a real pleasure and goes down easy. Creed by T.J. Siegal at the original Milk & Honey bar in New York, it has become a modern classic. 

Ingredients:

  • 2 ounces bourbon
  • ¾ ounce fresh lemon juice
  • ¾ ounce honey syrup (1:1 water & honey)

Equipment needed: 

  • Cocktail shaker or mason jar 
  • Mason jar or bowl to make the honey syrup 
  • Something to juice lemon
  • Shot glass 

Instructions:

  • Shake ingredients with ice and strain into a rocks glass filled with ice. 

Paloma

Little is known about the historical origin of the Paloma, the most popular tequila-based cocktail in Mexico. Some believe that it is named after La Paloma (“The Dove”), the popular folk song composed in the early 1860s. Difford’s guide states it was created by the legendary Don Javier Delgado Corona, owner and bartender of La Capilla, in Tequila, Mexico.

Ingredients:

  • 2 ounces tequila
  • 2 ounces fresh grapefruit juice, plus wedges for garnish
  • 2 ounces sparkling water
  • ½ ounce lime juice
  • ¼ ounce simple syrup
  • Ice

Equipment

  • Bowl for grapefruit juice (if you are juicing it yourself) 

Instructions:

  • Mix the tequila, grapefruit juice, sparkling water, lime juice, and simple syrup into the glass. Fill the remainder of the glass with ice. Adjust sweetness to taste. Garnish with grapefruit wedge.

Speed Dating

Since we are not in person at the gym, we realize that the bonding convos that happen in the locker room, while waiting for class to start, during class, at post class drinks or coffee don’t get to happen. We thought speed dating would be a great chance to connect with several different community members, outside of the virtual workout. 

We asked questions, listened, were vulnerable and shared. 

It was so much fun that we are already planning the next one!
