Hope you're all having a beautiful summer Friday today!
To celebrate the beautiful weather we're having (and to try to escape from it a little bit) I've created a delicious blended strawberry cocktail. I call it The Sorta Strawber-rita because it's sorta like a strawberry margarita as in it's sweet, cold, and goes down easy, however the liquors in this drink are different.
So why not use this drink as an excuse to invite a friend over and try this sucker out for your selves?! (the recipe makes two drinks)
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...
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...
