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.
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)
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....
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!
Well looky here, it’s Friday again. You know what that means- it’s cocktail time! This week I’d like to present to you the Guava Passionfruit Sangria Blanco.
This sangria’s got of a little bit of everything, from guava to lemons to pear juice. It also makes quite a lot, so why not invite a few friends over and enjoy it together. I sense a game night in your future. (or you can just halve the recipe)
Hold on to your pants, cuz here we go-
(preemptive side note, not everything is pictured above. you will need some other stuff so please read carefully.)
What you’ll need: 1 cup of cheap brandy, 2 bottles of white wine (I used one bottle of Sauvignon Blanc a...
Although I absolutely love cooking, baking is where my heart is. I love experimenting, creating new recipes, coming up with flavor combinations, and of course, decorating cakes.
I was over at my parents' house this weekend and took a look around for ripe fruit because I felt like baking. My mom is an amazing gardener, so my parents' garden is filled with edible plants, fruits, and veggies (from the usual tomatoes and lettuce to more unusual stuff like kefir limes, passion fruit, and coffee beans). This means I get to scour the yard and bake from whatever's in season. This time the Meyer lemon* tree out front was overflowing with perfectly ripe lemons, so I decide...
