Pomegranate Lemonade

My best friend Joy was in town last weekend for a little project we’ve been working on. We did what we normally do when we get together, laugh, laugh some more, go for long walks, laugh again, and then make new recipes and fun cocktails we’ve been eyeing. This pomegranate lemonade was one of the […]

Caramel Apple Spritzer

  Happy Friday! Hope you all had a great week! It was a busy one for us and now headed for an even busier weekend – but I’m loving every second of it. I’m looking forward to a much needed date night with my hubby tonight, visiting with some old friends back in town for […]

Apple Mule

TGIF!! After making my new favorite infused gin, it got me excited to try other infusions with fresh fruits and herbs. Because it’s apple season, and because it’s Friday, and because of my new infusing obsession, this Apple Mule was born. I infused bourbon with fresh chopped apples in a mason jar. After a couple […]

Black & Blue Bramble

I’ve been getting all up in berry seasons’ business lately. I can’t get enough of them. I’ll be posting a strawberry banana bread on Mash Your Heart Out this week that is OMG good. But back to this berry bramble. It’s hands down my favorite drink of Summer 2014. Last Summer, the “it” drink in […]

Ruby Red Grapefruit Mimosa

I’ve been making these almost every weekend lately. It’s just too good not to. Ruby red grapefruit, freshly squeezed with ALL the pulp and a little zest from the grapefruit. The zest and pulp is the real secret¬† to it being dynamite good. I made a pitcher for Easter brunch at my aunt’s house and […]

Green Smoothie (that doesn’t taste “Green”)

  I don’t own a juicer, so with that said, here’s my contribution to eating cleaner in 2014, with a nice green smoothie. I’ve always preferred smoothies over juice, anyway. This smoothie is packed with fresh spinach, bananas and a sprinkling of fresh cranberries to round it out. I used coconut milk in here, but […]

Watermelon Agua Fresca

The hubs and I celebrated a birthday weekend (yes, we’re June babies) with friends, food, drinks and swimming over the weekend. It was wonderful to spend time with some old and new faces. Sunday we hosted a brunch pool party and our friend Brian brought ingredients for watermelon agua fresca. I had never had it […]


Don’t ask me why it has taken over a year to get this drink on here. When new friends come over, we convince them that they have to, have to try this drink before they leave. Because of our pushy ways, we’ve converted hoards of friends onto Palomas. It has finessed and established itself in […]

Blood Orange Mimosa

Springtime always makes me think of brunches and being outside. I’m throwing an Easter egg hunt party this weekend with family and friends and brunch will be served along with some well deserved mimosas. Mimosas are the other thing I think of when its Spring.¬† I’m making traditional mimosas but also some with a few […]
