recipe // healthy kombucha cocktail with pomelo + sage

The prettiest pink cocktail! "Healthy" kombucha cocktail recipe with pomelo + sage. Includes freshly squeezed pomelo juice, whiskey, rose water, kombucha, and sage leaves. Get the full recipe on Jojotastic.com

Confession: I don’t know what this cocktail recipe tastes like with the whiskey. The truth is that I’m attempting to go the entire month of January without drinking (aka Drynuary), so I could only taste test this one as a mocktail! Oops… but let’s be real here, whiskey just makes everything better. I knew I wanted to share a healthy cocktail with you guys this month, so we combined the delicious citrus flavor of pomelo with the effervescence and deliciously sour taste of kombucha. Even if you’re taking the month off from booze, this recipe is heavenly.

a few thoughts on cohabitation, omg

Moving in together? Here’s my personal essay on this big step in our relationship, cohabitation! Get all of my tips and offer up some much-needed advice on Jojotastic.com

Over the past few months, the boyfriend and I have been discussing moving in together. Yup, COHABITATION. Big steps. I mean, we basically already live together because I have a comfortable house and he has a sailboat that isn’t the warmest during the winter months. We eat our meals together, our dogs are always together, we share laundry duties. On some practical level, cohabitation is nothing especially new… but putting a label on it is, especially in #mytinybungalow. Did you know that it doesn’t have a single closet and measures at 640 sqft total? And those are just my practical thoughts. There are so many other things to think about… perhaps you guys have some advice?

Happy 2017, you guys! I hope you had an amazing holiday, but now it’s time to get down to business and back to our regularly scheduled programming… Last year I set some goals and then promptly forgot about them. Little did I know that I’d dive head-first into the home buying process and that I’d get totally thrown off track because of that huge moment in my life. 2016 certainly brought many ups and downs, many of which threw me off track. This year, I want to focus on the simple stuff. Here are a few goals and resolutions for 2017:
