Bee Sting: Tipsy Tuesday

All you need for the Renaissance Faire version of a Bee Sting are mead and hard cider. An easy drink to chill with all summer long!

Search the internet and you’ll find a variety of cocktails that go by the name Bee Sting.

Some contain gin. Others rely on Scotch. I’ve even found tequila! But the super easy Renaissance Faire version…apparently, a drink has no name?

During both of the last two weekends, I traveled back in time not to 1955, …

Blood and Sand: Tipsy Tuesday

Blood and Sand is a Prohibition-era cocktail featuring blended Scotch whisky, sweet vermouth, Cherry Heering, and orange juice.

After my visit to the Ritz Crystal Room and Café at Remember When last week, I’ve been in a bit of a Prohibition-era state of mind. Maybe it was that Hemingway, but classic cocktails have occupied my mind. In an age when there’s a vodka in just about every flavor, it’s really nice to go …

Paloma with a Spicy Salt Rim

The Paloma is a tasty tequila cocktail just perfect for the warm weather!

I am eternally on the quest to find more ways to utilize tequila.

Ever since tequila became my liquor of choice, I’ve been in a bit of a rut. Sure, everyone knows about the margarita. And I often will do the lazy fakerita and toss it in with some limeade. But once you get past …

Raspberry Pineapple Tequila Cocktail: Tipsy Tuesday

Tuesdays call for tequila! Celebrate in style with these Raspberry Pineapple Tequila Cocktails!

It’s Tuesday, again. One of the most underappreciated days of the week. Monday has its claim to fame as being the reintroduction to the workweek. Wednesday is hump day. But what about Tuesday? The only appropriate solution? Tipsy Tuesday. Which is even better when it can do double duty as Tequila Tuesday, too.

Honestly, I …

Marshmallow Martini

Marshmallow Martinis get their sweetness from vanilla cotton candy, which magically disappears as you pour!

The Easter Bunny has hopped on through town and it’s time to raid your kids’ Easter baskets for the good stuff.

I don’t mean peanut butter or Cadbury eggs (though both are pretty delightful). This year, there’s a new quest… for cotton candy and Peeps. You’ll see why…

A few weeks ago, I had …

Rossini (Strawberry and Prosecco)

Strawberry Rossinis are like the Bellini you already know and love...but with a strawberry twist!

Brunch is one of my favorite meals. I get to have all the foods I love and it’s socially acceptable to drink alcohol at 10:30 in the morning. Wins all the way around!

But with kids in the house, I don’t get to brunch the way I’d like very often. Gone are the days of …

Happy New Year!

I fully intended to have some insightful post ready today to close out 2015. Something that looked back on the year thoughtfully, reflecting upon the good and the bad, the growth I’ve made and the lessons I’ve learned. The sort of thing a good blogger would do because she planned out her …
