Just a few years ago most of my girl friends wouldn’t even consider drinking bourbon cocktails. I’m so glad it became hip and there are all kinds of fun cocktail recipes popping up at bars across America that include bourbon. My husband loves a good whiskey sour or a Manhattan. But those are still a little too manly for some ladies. I found this cocktail which includes bourbon AND champagne (or sparkling wine…semantics) which I think all my lady friends will love!
I’m partnering with Aveeno® to share how to promote healthy skin, from the inside out, as part of a sponsored post with Socialstars. #AveenoTurns out you get more health benefits from a smoothie than from toaster pastries! I’ve spent my life trying to ignore that fact, but the truth is, eating natural foods, really does help promote a healthier body. The right diet, paired with the right skin care products, can get you beautiful, healthy skin. This blackberry smoothie recipe is delicious and will help your skin, from the inside out.
Bourbon is so hot right now. Not, like temperature hot. But, like, hipster-y hot. And I know you want to make sure you are all up on what’s in so you need to make yourself a Kentucky Mule. Basically it is a Moscow Mule but with Bourbon. And maybe a handlebar mustache.
It’s 5 o’clock somewhere. But not here. Do you ever get stuck in that pre-happy hour, end of a long day craving for a cocktail? This is just two simple ingredients to make it not-quite a cocktail. There is trace amounts of alcohol, and lots of bubbles and will still leave you functional.
Can’t stop, won’t stop with the cucumber. Do your kids suddenly LOVE something and want to eat it all the time. And then just as quickly they’re over it? That’s us with cucumbers right now. I make sure to keep them in the house so they can grab one whenever they want it. That also means that I now have cucumbers on hand for all my cucumber cocktail needs…which sometimes leads me to needing sliced cucumbers for my hungover puffy eyes the next morning…
Sometimes I come across a recipe that I just have to make. Usually it’s full of sugar, cheese or something else that’s going straight to my thighs (damn you delicious food!). Such was the case with this Cucumber Basil Soda. It sounded unbelievably refreshing and seemed pretty easy to make. And aside from the simple syrup, it’s not super bad for you unlike regular sodas. It comes from one of my favorite restaurants, California Pizza Kitchen. I’m a big fan of CPK and when a brand new restaurant opened up right by my house, you know I had to check it out and eat all the things.
