It’s crazy to think that holiday season is right around the corner. I still can’t even accept the fact that Summer passed in the blink of an eye. (It must be a tell-tale sign of getting old). As October hits and our schedules start getting busier and busier, we have less time to think about gift ideas. With endless events, parties, birthdays, and holidays, they can sneak up on us and leave us scrambling. But, with a little prep work, or a saved pin on your pinterest board for later, you can store ideas away and be prepared well in advance this year! Today’s recipe works for just about any gift idea, and honestly, you can just keep it on hand at home, ready to pour when you have house guests stop by. This limoncello recipe is easier than pie, but it does take some patience and a little bit of time before it’s ready to sip.
Refreshing, light, fresh, and delicious, you definitely can’t go wrong with this champagne mojito cocktail recipe on your menu for Oscar night!
This weekend kicks off one of the biggest red carpet events of the year…the Oscars! Whether you watch to see who wins, who loses, or who wears what on the red carpet, I feel like it’s only appropriate to have an Oscar worthy cocktail to sip on while you watch. Today, I’m sharing a simple Champagne mojito cocktail recipe with you. Plus, any cocktail that involves champagne is Oscar worthy, if you ask me! 😉
Serve something a little different for game day this year. Try one of these delicious Bloody Mary recipes and have some fun with your garnishes!
We’re less than a week away from game day and I always like to think of ways to switch up the traditional Super Bowl inspired menu. Sure, the classics are great, don’t get me wrong, but I like it when I can serve something that’s a little bit unexpected. It helps make each and every gathering a little bit different and who doesn’t like a surprise every now and then?
Beer is a football staple. I’m a huge football fan, and I don’t usually turn one down when I’m at a game, but for the Super Bowl, why not take things up a notch and serve a brunch classic? The ever popular bloody mary! It pairs perfectly with game day snacks and there are sooo many ways to customize them for each one of your guests. (You could even set up a DIY bloody mary bar!) Today I’m sharing two different bloody mary recipes with you, just in case you want to try something a little different than the traditional bloody mary recipe. But, if not, I’ve got the traditional covered too. 😉
Sharing a recipe for a citrus sidekick cocktail, the perfect cocktail to sip with your girlfriends for “galentine’s day” this year!
Valentine’s Day can definitely be one of those days that you dread. A holiday filled with pink, red, and love everywhere. If you don’t happen to have a significant other to share it with, there are plenty of other ways you can celebrate February the 14th that won’t make you loathe the holiday.
The idea of “Galentines” day has become very popular over the last few years and I love it! It’s a fun way to celebrate all of the awesome girlfriends in your life and some of us have quite a few that deserve some kudos every once in awhile!
I’ve teamed up with Ménage à Trois Vodka to create a yummy citrus sidekick cocktail that is inspired by all of the awesome “sidekicks” in my life. They are the perfect sip to cheers with this weekend!
It’s definitely starting to feel like the holiday season around here. Our temps have started dropping and there have been a few mornings when I could see my breath in the air. Slightly depressing since I love warm weather, but the one good thing that I do always look forward to with the change of season is Thanksgiving and Christmas!
My family has a few different traditions that we incorporate each year, but I am always on the lookout for other fun ideas to bring into the mix, much to my family’s dismay. But, hey, someone’s gotta do it, right?
We have a lot more traditions centered around Christmas, but I have wanted to try to bring a little more flavor into Thanksgiving.
Since there are no grand kids around yet, I might just try to incorporate a new cocktail recipe each year or a cocktail making competition between family members! A fun take on the holidays, but also delish and fun to create.
This cranberry splash cocktail will definitely be a contender this year!
I guess it really could go either way for both holidays, but I’m still partial to it for Halloween.
Jack and Sally are the best Halloween characters and really seemed to get popular as costume choices over the last few years too! And how can you not love cute little zero?!
I used a little bit of inspiration from him when mixing up this devilishly good Halloween cocktail recipe.
Apple flavors, a hint of sour, lemon-lime fizz, and candy worms…of course!
This Oogie Boogie Halloween cocktail is definitely a winner to serve to the guests at your next spooky gathering!
This week is only a 4 day work week for the residents of Utah (aka, me) and I couldn’t be more thrilled.
Pioneer Day, the day that the pioneers settled in the state, is on Friday and I intend to celebrate the state holiday with a cool cocktail in hand. (Not exactly very “Utah-esque” of me, but what can I say. I’m an expat. 😉
My sister, who happens to be a health crazed freak beast from the planet Mars (no, seriously, she ENJOYS health food. I don’t get it), shared this recipe for healthy strawberry margaritas with me and I definitely feel a lot less guilty having a second (or third, or fourth, ahem), when I’m sipping on these guys.
She tried to hook me with the fact that it’s super healthy, has basic ingredients with no added sugar, and that you can understand all of the ingredients on the label, but, of course, I had zero interest in that.
I tried it. It was good. I was sold. I’m uncomplicated. (And I like sugar. Sue me).
But for all of you crazy health people, this cocktail’s for you. And it tastes good too, so there’s that.
I don’t know about you, but this week has been a doozy for me.
Crazy busy schedules, what seems like an endless amount of problems popping up, and various home improvements that all decided now was the perfect time to break down. (Our front door handle was only ONE of the many things we had to fix this week. We’ve been creeping through our backyard at night, like robbers, and getting in through our back door. Why not through our garage door instead…? Oh yeah, because that broke this week too).
Hopefully your week has been better than mine! But, regardless, I feel like you can’t go wrong with a Friday. There is nothing better than knowing you can relax on the weekends, sleep in, go to brunch, or just stay up late and watch tv. Not having to answer to the responsibilies that Monday-Friday requires is always a huge relief.
If you had a week that was anything like mine, you might want to pour yourself a drink while you watch what’s left of shark week.
This shark week cocktail is dubbed “Blood in the Water”, because a). There is “blood” in the water, and b). Because this week has me feeling like chum. So it’s a two-fer.
But don’t let that whole “chum” thing turn you off. It’s a delicious and refreshing cocktail that is sure to enhance your shark week viewing pleasure!
