    Garden Tonic Cocktail + Cardinal Spirits

    For a city of 80,000, it’s pretty incredible that we have four local breweries around town that sling their homemade craft beer; so incredible, that I would say it’s almost down right unnecessary. Because…

    Gin & [Blood Orange] Juice

    I have all sorts of opinions on being an adult. I really really dislike it most of the time; in fact, not only do I dislike it but I’m pretty darn awful at it.…

    Fresh Squeezed Heirloom Harissa Bloody Mary

      Today I’ve paired up with the fine folks over at Williams-Sonoma to share my favorite Bloody Mary recipe with all of you! Hmmm…end of August. I almost went all season without posting a…

    Blood Orange Smash

        This may sound like an odd question for February but have you been keeping up with your New Year’s resolutions? Yup, I’m still asking. I realize that most of us stop thinking…

    Loaded Hibiscus Arnold Palmers

      Somewhere down the line I picked up this habit of “loading” my drinks with fruit and herbs. I could probably link this on my mother for exposing me to sangria at such an…

    Blueberry Thyme Soda

    I’m obsessed with my Soda Stream. Like more than anyone should ever be with a kitchen appliance. I was on the fence about getting one since it seems like such a unnecessary expense but…

    Citrus Thyme Cocktail

      I usually post in the mornings but a happy hour post seemed appropriate with this cocktail recipe. I reserve the winters for beer and baileys and mulled wine. But as the sun starts…

    Ginger Citrus Infused Rum

      So remember when I made that Blueberry Basil Infused Vodka? Well, it was awesome. So awesome that I needed to play around with more infusions. From what I had read, you only get…

    Blueberry Basil Peach Fizz

    And here is the cocktail recipe I promised to go along with the Basil Blueberry Infused vodka. It’s simple with the shining ingredients being the garnish. But that’s the way I like my cocktails.…

    Basil Blueberry Infused Vodka

      This is less of a recipe and more of a kitchen experiment. It involves letting vodka absorb the flavors for up to a weeks time. And involves sip tasting everyday. And adjusting the…

    Honey Bee Chai (Vanilla + Honey)

    This being the second post on Chai Tea in the last 2 weeks (see: Chocolate Chai), it’s pretty obvious that chai has won me over. Most people feel very passionate about coffee or tea.…

    Citrus Pisco Negroni

    I don’t have a very sophisticated palette when it comes to alcohol. When sampling something, I would know the difference between red and white. Between gin and vodka. And between spiced rum and whiskey.…

      Hello, Monday. I can’t say I was entirely prepared for you. Can’t say I’m really that crazy about you in general. Sooo….how to make Monday a little less gloomy? How about adding some…

      EVERYONE in my office is sick and it makes me crazy paranoid. I feel like I can’t even go to the bathroom without fearing that I’ll catch the plague. I know it’s not…
