It's already been a crazy spring. I have a newborn baby, a new born book, and a book/media tour underway. This girl needs a drink! Luckily, Seersucker Gin graciously sent me a bottle of their liquor and I happily got to work to create a perfect springtime cocktail that is light and fresh and perfect for the warmer days ahead.
I started making homemade Cherry Limeade last 4th of July for our annual Independence Day party. Now it has become a special summer treat that I find myself making quite often. No need to trek to Sonic, this homemade recipe is fresh and totally amazing!
Weekend afternoons and evenings spent poolside with family and friends are a treat that only summer can afford and nothing screams summertime-fun more than lemonade. This sweet and tart childhood favorite turned boozy adult cocktail will be your new favorite warm-weather refresher.
With the Kentucky Derby this weekend and more important for Nashvillians, The Iroquois Steeplechase on May 10, it's time to break out the silver and pewter cups for the ultimate race-day specialty—Mint Juleps.
My Ultimate (Skinny) Margarita has long been my go-to summer cocktail. It's light and fresh and I haven't met anyone that doesn't like it. This Pomegranate Mint Spiked Lemonade just may rival it. It's my new summer favorite and will be THE cocktail on all my backyard barbecue menus this summer.
Chocolate, peanut butter, banana and coconut ... a combination made in milkshake heaven! This cold, creamy treat is so decadent and delicious, you'll forget it's actually good for you.
My favorite cocktail is a good Margarita. Emphasis on the good. To me, a good margarita doesn't include sweet-and-sour mix. I love me some cheap greasy Mexican but most of those restaurants serve pitchers of premixed Margaritas that are bright green in color and chalked full of sugar—yuck!
Happy New Year! I'm so excited about the thought of what 2014 will bring. After taking a week off from the blog for the holidays, I'm excited to be back to bring you fresh and fun ideas to help you enjoy this new year.
On the 8th day of Christmas my true love gave to me "8 maids a milking." What goes better with milk than chocolate?!
The holidays are all about getting together with the ones you love. I love entertaining and having people over but sometimes a big dinner party is overwhelming for not only you but your guests too (who might have several different parties to attend in one weekend). That's why I love having a small intimate cocktail hour where friends can just stop in and then head to their next affair.
