To be honest, it seemed a little silly to write a post about a recipe for DIY simple syrup (which is sooooo easy to make), but after posting a few cocktail recipes in the past, that required the ingredient, I was surprised that I actually received a lot of comments about it. What it was, where to buy it, and how to make your own. So, to make things simpler moving forward, and to prevent you guys from having to search the web for a tutorial, I’m dedicating this post to all things DIY simple syrup!
This melon sangria is a light and refreshing twist on the traditional recipe, but just as delicious and refreshing. Perfect for Cinco de Mayo too!
One thing that seems to help make a celebration successful are the drinks. A good cocktail can make all the difference at an event and really get people in the mood to party! With Cinco de Mayo coming up, sangria has been on my brain a lot, but I wanted to put some summer vibes out into the universe to get those warmer temps over to Utah faster. (It’s supposed to SNOW again next week. Ugh!) So, to switch things up a bit, I’m sharing a recipe for melon sangria that’s perfect to serve for your upcoming fiestas and a thirst quenching taste of Summer too!
You only need a few easy to find ingredients to pull this cocktail together and it’s a breeze to make, which is one of the reasons why I love sangria so much! (Well, besides that whole wine part, which is kinda hard to beat).
It might still be January (for a few more days), but love is definitely in the air! The floral shops are full of brightly colored pink and red bouquets, boxes of chocolates and candy hearts are lining the aisles at the grocery stores, and reservations at the top restaurants are already booking up. For me and the hubs, Valentine’s day is the perfect night to spend in, ordering pizza, wearing sweats, and watching netflix. Does that make us old?
Whether you plan to spend Valentine’s Day in or out this year, there are still some fun and simple ways you can celebrate the holiday without going broke or spending a lot of time planning.
Today’s post is great for the kids, a fun v-day party, or even for adults who don’t plan on drinking over the holidays. These non-alcoholic Cupid’s Arrow Shirley Temples are easy to make, yummy, and too cute!
If you’re not familiar with this special weekly celebration, today is a great day to become familiar with it, because I’m sharing a special recipe that’s a perfect match!
Sweet, tangy, and full of flavor, this cocktail is one that you’ll want to drink now and pin for later.
Citrus flavors always remind me of Summer, so to celebrate these last few weeks before heading into the fall, I whipped up at delicious batch of citrus sangria!
