Hey y'all, it's Friday! That means it's time for a cocktail... or three. 

Today I have a black currant (Creme de Cassis) and rosewater cocktail for you. It's sweet, slightly tart, and floral. This would go really well with some nice cheese and a baguette out on the patio, or if you're in the southern hemisphere and it's wintertime, in front of a nice warm fire. 

Have an awesome weekend ladies and gents!

Friday's here, and it's a little (fine... a lot) cloudy,but don't let the June Gloom get you down! Just because it's been overcast along the Southern California Coast for a few weeks, doesn't mean we can't partake ina little tropical cocktail! Who's with me?

Well, today I bring you a little glass of sunshine to ease these gloomy skies. This Tipsy Pineapple cocktail is refreshing, tropical, and just takes a minute to make, so why not grab a glass and try it for yourself!

Let's get this party started!

Hello everyone! Happy Friday... or should I say, Happy National Donut Day!

 

Yes, here in America we have a day dedicated to out sugary, cakey little friends. Jealous?

 

Today I've prepared a cocktail that translates my absolute favorite kind of donut into an alcoholic form- SPRINKLE DONUTS! (Though I am also in love with cream filled donuts, coconut covered donuts, jelly donuts, donut holes, donut donuts, donut, donut donut, donuts...... I just really like donuts, ok?)

For all of you fellow Americans out there, it's Memorial Day weekend. This probably means hitting the beach, BBQs, and maybe a sale or two, which is why I've created a fun and refreshing cocktail you can enjoy all throughout your sunny 3-day weekend. 

 

This week's Spiked Caramel Lemonade is summery and maybe a little too easy to drink (if ya know what I mean...). 

 

Let's get to it- 

 

What you'll need: 

1+1/2 c White Sugar

1/4 c Light Brown Sugar

1+1/2 c Lemon Juice 

2+1/4 c Warm Water, divided

1+1/3 c Dark Rum (or alcohol of your choice)

Ice

1 Whole Lemon

 

First, mix 1/2 cup of water and 1+1/2 cups of white sugar in a heavy saucepan over medium high heat....

It's that time again... COCKTAIL TIME!

 

The Kentucky Derby is tomorrow, so today I present you with two takes on the classic Mint Julep... but there's a twist!

 

In honor of Mother's Day on Sunday, the first of these juleps is a little more grown up and feminine. I call that one the Kentucky Peach Julep.

 

The second julep I have for you is in honor of Cinco De Mayo (which was yesterday), my dad's birthday (which is today), and the Kentucky Derby (which is tomorrow). I call it the MexiCali Chrome. This julep's secret weapon ingredient is also one of my dad's favorites- Mezcal.

 

If you don't already know, the Mint Julep is the official drink...

Guess what?

 

That’s right, it’s Friday! Time for another original cocktail. Yipee!

 

Whether you’re having friends over for happy hour or just feel like a drink, this one should be it. It’s easy, the ingredients are in-season, and it’ll make even the gents feel classy. (I mean, it’s served in a coupe glass and we all know, coupe glass = classy.) Plus, I am positive you’ll love it even if you’re not a gin person.

 

The Strawberry Basil Gin Smash is a drink you’re going to want seconds of, so I’d recommend buying a whole punnet of strawberries. Enjoy!

It's Friday; you deserve a cocktail. Why not treat yourself to an ultra refreshing and simple Satsuma Rosemary Splash? It's a drink made from a few in-season ingredients that's sure to please.

 

On my way home today I decided to swing past the market and noticed that satsuma mandarins were on sale. Growing up, tangerines were one of my favorites and always around the house when in season, so obviously my first thought upon seeing them was 'oooh, it's cocktail time'.  (my brain works in mysterious ways...)

 

This lightly sweet and vibrant cocktail will make you feel like a kid again (minus the whole alcohol thing...) and tastes best...
