I promise that I don’t drink as much as my blog or Instagram might have you think. It’s just that cocktails are so pretty! And I love that they signify a moment of relaxation. With summer right around the corner, I’m sharing a twist on an old classic. A Tequila Sunrise seems like it would be served up at The Regal Beagle, doesn’t it? This version, a Vodka Sunrise using Sangria flavored vodka instead, is a modern take. No kaftan required. Well, I mean, they are always welcome. Just not required.
Have I got a drink for you! It seemed like all of a sudden, Moscow Mules got super trendy and were on every cocktail menu. I totally get it. They’re super tasty and refreshing and really easy to make at home. So I started trying out all kinds of different versions like this Bourbon Moscow Mule. I quickly knew that I needed to try one with tequila, a Mexican Mule if you please, and was not disappointed! It’s such a great twist on the classic recipe. I don’t love spicy foods, but there is something amazing about a cocktail with a little bit of a spicy kick so I came up with this spicy Mexican Mule Recipe to share with you!
It seems like my love of tequila has carried over from last summer. Which carried over from the summer before that. While I love a traditional margarita, I think it’s such a versatile drink and can turn in to something completely new with the addition of just one or two ingredients. Like this watermelon margarita recipe. By adding watermelon and mint it really freshens it up and gives it a whole new vibe. I know some of you out there have bad memories of tequila (like, face down on the floor memories…) but you should give it another try. You’re going to love this watermelon margarita!
How is February almost over? Valentine’s Day is over but it still feels very celebratory around here and I’ve been craving champagne. It doesn’t need to be saved only for special occasions. There are great bottles that are delicious and won’t totally ruin your budget. So invite some friends over or pop a bottle with your husband on a Tuesday. I promise you it will make your meat loaf seem so much more gourmet.

Day drinking is the ultimate in relaxation. If you can sit down and enjoy a cocktail, in the middle of the day, that means your obligations have been met and you are off the clock for a little while. Unfortunately for me, day drinking also means that I want to take a nap. This sangria recipe with iced tea is the perfect way to indulge in some afternoon sipping without getting sloppy and tired.

Are you all about football or do you mainly chat with your friends? My oldest son is super in to football right now so I know it will be fun to watch with him. He knows way more players than I do and can totally help me figure out what is going on. Plus he LOVES pop music so he geeks out at the half-time show! But I could just as easily stay home and fold laundry and watch Scandal. Is that unAmerican? What are your go-to Super Bowl recipes?
