We Rum This Punch Recipe
|

THIS! This is the best rum punch recipe. EVER. It is sweet with some spice (not like hot spice, like exotic spice), it has citrus but I wouldn’t classify this a fruit punch. It is just plain delicious. I was invited to participate in the Captain Morgan Memorial Day Punch Recipe Competition. I was sent…

Vanilla Bean and Cinnamon Simple Syrup
|

You HAVE to make this! I made it for the punch recipe I’ll be sharing with you tomorrow. But you absolutely don’t have to use this only in cocktails. I put a little bit in some fresh squeezed grapefruit juice for my son and he totally freaked out. I picked up some really delicious Mexican…

Chelada Recipe
|

I’ve always seen Micheladas and been so jealous. I love Corona and think it would be a fantastic ingredient to use in other drink recipes. But I don’t love a Bloody Mary which a Michelada resembles. So when I saw the Chelada recipe in Rachael Ray, I got so excited! It called for just two…

White Russian with Rum Cocktail Recipe #StreamTeam
|

This post is written in partnership with Netflix because I’m a #StreamTeam member, yo!  My kids are totally at that stage where they notice, and comment, on everything. Including but not limited to: morning breath, extra arm flab, and adult beverages. My husband and I enjoy the occasional cocktail, wine or beer. If you are…

Pear and Wine Cocktail Recipe
|

You guys! Pear nectar, fresh thyme and lime juice. Sounds refreshing, right? And chardonnay? Hmmmm. When that recipe showed up in my inbox I just wasn’t sure. It had flavors that I love. It has wine which I love (although I am not the biggest chardonnay fan). But together? I had to try it. Fresh…

Apple Bourbon Cocktail Recipe
|

My husband and I have really grown in to liking bourbon. There is something so warm and comforting about it. And when you get a decent bottle (you don’t have to spend a ton, but definitely don’t choose something from the very bottom shelf) it doesn’t burn as if you are drinking paint thinner. Whiskey…

Grapefruit Hibiscus Vodka Soda Cocktail
|

I usually don’t like using odd ingredients. I won’t even make a recipe if it requires some off the wall thing that I’ve never seen at the store. But there is one exception to this rule. Cocktails. I LOVE using unique ingredients in cocktail recipes. So when I saw this Hibiscus Liqueur I knew I…

Strawberry Mint Moscow Mule #StreamTeam
|

You all might remember that I am part of Netflix’s #StreamTeam. As a way to announce their newest animated, original series, The Adventures of Puss in Boots (now playing), they’ve asked us to talk about our own favorite four-legged friends. So I made a Strawberry Mint Moscow Mule recipe for you. “Huh?” you say… You…

Ice Cream Float Bar
|

*Tillamook sent me coupons to purchase the ice cream for my son’s party. How cool is that?! For the last few years we have kept our kid’s parties small. Gone are the days of my over the top kid’s parties. But I still like to make them special and memorable. That often means trying to…
