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.
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!
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!

SPRINKLE DONUT COCKTAIL
Time: 2 minutes
3/4 oz Cinnabon Vodka (I bought my bottle of Pinnacle on sale for less than $10)
If a lemon drop, a margarita, and Thailand had a baby it would be this cocktail… and I’m ok with that.
For those of you who don’t know, a kaffir lime is a very bumpy/wrinkly variety of lime (see picture above) that is native to certain tropical regions of Asia. The kaffir tree also has unique double leaves that are commonly used in Thai cuisine due to their distinct taste and wonderful fragrance.
What makes this cocktail great is the use of kaffir simple syrup (recipe below). Though we have our own tree, I exclusively use the leaves in the syrup because they are much easier to come by than the limes and can be found in some ethnic m...
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...
