This Sage and Citrus Shandy takes a traditional beer cocktail and pumps it up with three types of citrus and a lightly herbal flavor, for a super refreshing summer drink!
I have a new favorite tongue-twister: Sage and Citrus Shandy.
Say that five times fast. Now drink a couple and try it again. 😉
Okay, I’ll be honest. I don’t love the name of the drink as much as I love the drink itself. What’s so great about this shandy? Well, it takes a summer classic and gives it some extra oomph. It includes not one, not two, but THREE types of citrus for maximum flavor, plus a hint of herbaceousness to make it even more refreshing.
Celebrate Cinco de Mayo (or your average Friday!) with a Spicy Guava Margarita in hand. Equal parts tart, sweet, and peppery, and all-around delicious!
Well folks, Cinco de Mayo is right around the corner, and we all know what that means: MEXICAN FOOD! Or in this case, Mexican Drinks. And we think that this Spicy Guava Margarita, with a delightful combination of spicy, tart, and fruity, will make it into your margarita rotation. We’re happy to be celebrating this holiday with fellow blogger Kate Ramos of ¡Hola! Jalapeño, who clearly has her priorities in order and has put together a solid Margarita Week (not day, WEEK!) round-up of recipes.
This Lavender Grapefruit Martini is a fresh and flavorful cocktail, just right for welcoming spring.
With the approach of spring, my mind has been turning to all the fresh ingredients that come along with it. Mind you, I have to look at a calendar to know that spring is approaching, as Houston was entirely without winter this year. Regardless, the jasmine and azaleas blooming made me think of another, more edible flower: lavender.
Back when Liz lived in New York, there was a great bar just down the street from her apartment called Dove Parlour. Sadly, it has since closed, but we think of it quite fondly. It had this dark, almost speakeasy feel, and was the sort of place that felt entirely natural to order fancy cocktails and once, even absinthe. Of course, they don’t make it with hallucinogenic wormwood anymore, so it’s not as fun, but I digress. One of their signature cocktails was the “French Lavender,” and I might go so far as to call it Liz’s favorite cocktail in all of NYC. So this is our homage to that drink: a lavender grapefruit martini.
This Apple Ginger Smash is the best cocktail to enjoy on a dark winter night! Slightly spicy with warming applejack, it makes your average evening a little more special.
Moving right along with our New Year’s Resolutions, which include knocking back a few fancy cocktails (for our health!), here’s a delicious addition to your winter happy hour: an Apple Ginger Smash.
While my favorite fall cocktails lean towards cinnamon, which pairs beautifully with apple, winter makes me crave something a little different. Something with a little deeper flavor. Something with ginger and applejack!
Crockpot Hot Chocolate is the easiest way to make a big batch of everyone’s favorite holiday drink. Perfect for parties, or any time you want a super rich and creamy cup of chocolate.
Now THIS is a hot chocolate to beat all hot chocolates. Our recipe for Crockpot Hot Chocolate is serious business. Well, as serious as you can be about chocolate. Super thick and rich, it could be called “drinking chocolate” or “sipping chocolate,” but we went for the old-fashioned name. Don’t be fooled. This is as far from powdered drink mix as you can get.
Personally, I’ve been trying to think how to accurately describe this Crockpot Hot Chocolate — while keeping it clean on our family-friend blog. So let’s just say if your friend takes a sip of this, you’re going to want to have what she’s having.
