Rhubarb Rose Gin Sour

This Rhubarb Rose Gin Sour brings a really beautiful and delicious twist to the classic 1940s gin sour cocktail that’s made with gin, lemon juice, and sugar. More often than not, an egg white is added to the cocktail to give it a smooth, frothy consistency, that in my opinion brings this cocktail to the next level! Plus, I love how it looks, right? It’s like the cappuccino for mixed

Mango Thyme Mimosas

It is officially spring! I thought this day would never come… and can I be honest with you? I wasn’t quite sure if I was going to make it through this winter without losing my mind, and eating all of the chocolate in my house! Chocolate + red wine = happiness and I’m not ashamed to say that, haha! You know what also equals happiness? The brilliant sunshine-yellow of these

Blackberry Rosé Tequila Fizz

“The best thing to hold onto in life is each other.” – Audrey Hepburn. Call me sappy, but I really do love Valentine’s Day. I’m a sucker for a good holiday and even more so a sucker for any good reason to celebrate! I find life is too valuable and short not to find some excuse to pop some bubbly and toast to anything good going on. Even if Valentine’s

A dazzling + festive Crimson Sparkler Cocktail

Happy Holidays!!! We are less than a week away from the big day, or if you’re like my family, the big week. I currently have 4 different family celebrations to enjoy, help cook for, and eat way too much food at! Next week will be filled with a lot of traveling, but I’m excited to spend time with my family. What also has me excited is the excuse to drink festive

The Peachy Keen Cocktail

You know it’s officially summer when the farmer’s markets are overflowing with a tempting variety of sweet peaches. I’ve been especially drawn to these punched-down versions of a white peach, called a Donut Peach. I love their little squatty, orbital bodies, haha! They really do resemble a donut in a way, however, the flavor is so incredible. Delicately sweet with a hint of floral. I’m dreaming of all the things

Cucumber Rosemary Paloma + an update!

You may think you’re seeing doubles with this Cucumber Rosemary Paloma or an odd repeat from last week. On the contrary, I promise you this is not sheer laziness on my behalf by giving you a wildly delicious variation of the Raspberry Mint Paloma we featured last week for Cinco de Mayo. You see, a few weeks ago my friend Rachel, from Rachel’s Lookbook, and I had an impromptu girls

Raspberry Mint Paloma Cocktail

Every year, when Cinco de Mayo rolls around, I suddenly find myself fighting off an uncontrollable desire to overdose on guacamole, chips, and margaritas. Are you with me on this? I mean, come on, who doesn’t love a holiday that gives us an excuse to indulge in our favorite foods? So it’s safe to say I will be eating enough guacamole to feed a small country. At the same time, I think

Blackberry Gin-Ginger Champagne Cocktail

I am one of those who loves a good champagne cocktail! There’s something so festive and joyful about a little bubbly concoction that makes you immediately ready to celebrate! I wasn’t always in love with celebrating Valentine’s Day… probably because I was always single on this holiday and then when I finally got married, we always managed to get in a fight the day of Valentine’s Day, which put a

Lavender Blackberry Mojito

We’re at it again with another wildly yummy recipe using my new favorite flower, Lavender! This plant is utterly dreamy and experimenting various ways to cook with it has been rather addictive! This time we decided to try out our “craft cocktail skills” and whip up a delicate, floral meets in-your-face blackberry and mint mojito. I want to try this combo out on just about everything! Can you imagine a
