Summer parties need refreshments, and those refreshments need to be light and refreshing. No one wants to grab a drink to cool off on a sweltering hot day, only to feel weighed down by a dark and heavy beverage. This Raspberry Fizz Cocktail is exactly what your party, and your party guests need……..
Summer is almost here, and nothing screams summer like watermelon! Visions of picnics and barbecues with table lined with delicious food and drinks. Well I am in the mood for a cocktail in this little fantasy of mine, and this Watermelon Moscow Mule is the perfect light and refreshing cocktail to enjoy on those hot summer nights…….
A few years ago I threw a really big Cinco de Mayo party, and silly me did not think to make a Pitcher of Margaritas. Crazy, right? So there I was all night squeezing limes, and measuring out alcohol. I will never make that mistake again!! Not when you can do a little bit of prep, and keep the margaritas flowing for at least part of the night……..
Raise your hands if you are ready for sunshine and warmer temperatures! I am not quite prepared for full-blown Arizona summer temperatures, but I would like for the rain to stop so the weeds will stop growing, LOL. Until that happens, I will continue to dream of an island paradise of sand, surf, and Pineapple Daiquiri Sorbet……..
A funny thing has been happening in my head for the past few weeks, I have been dreaming about Hawaii again! I’m not sure if it’s boredom, severe allergies bringing me down, or the Sudafed induced fog that I have been in… but I have been daydreaming about the sand, surf, and delicious foods that you only find in Hawaii. Yes, I do realize that the Hurricane Cocktail was created in New Orleans not Hawaii……..
Top ‘o the morning to ya’! We will be taking a break from all of the healthy food today for an Irish cocktail that would make your Irish ancestors proud, even if you are not Irish. This Jameson & Ginger is light and refreshing with a wee hint of Irish Whiskey rolling down the back of your throat……..
Are you ready for some FOOOOTBAAAALL??? You yelled that in your head as you read it, didn’t you? 😉 The big game is this weekend and every big game needs a cocktail! This year was kinda tricky for me to come up with something new and different, but here they are…. Super Bowl 2017 Cocktails “Patriots” vs “Falcons”……..
I cannot believe that it will be 2017 in less than a week! I still have so many Christmas recipes that I wanted to share, lol I think I will need to seriously consider doing Christmas in July next year so I can post them all ahead of time. Would that be weird? Oh well, until that happens we have a fun and sparkly Gold Royal Cocktail to ring in the new year with……..
