Dragonfruit Margarita

It’s my firm belief that margaritas should be served year round. None of this summer-drink nonsense. In fact I recently had the perfect springtime drink, a Dragonfruit Margarita at a local Los Angeles Mexican restaurant and was inspired to recreate it at home. Dragonfruit is a brilliantly pink, exotic and slightly intimidating looking fruit. I was never quite sure what to do with it or how to eat it. But...

Oscar Saki-tini

It doesn’t get more Hollywood, or more LA for that matter, than sipping on a frosty Saki-tini. It’s part crisp and refreshing Japanese Saki, part chilled vodka, and all kinds of delicious. The perfect Hollywood style cocktail to serve this Oscar Sunday. The Oscar nominees are all talent and glamour but I’m casting my academy vote for this sleek beauty! Cheers to the Oscars.

Pop the bubbly and start the countdown because 2013 is about to come to a close. If you’re looking for a festive last minute drink to serve at your New Year’s Eve party, look no further.

Pomegranate-Cranberry Sparkler

When it comes to holiday entertaining, I prefer low maintenance cocktail recipes. Who wants to shake up individual cocktails and baste the turkey every 30 minutes? Certainly not this lady! That’s why a pitcher of Pomegranate-Cranberry Sparklers will be holding court on my bar cart all season long. Keep a pitcher of chilled Pomegranate Cranberry Orange juice on hand in the fridge and top it with a splash of...

Gin & Roses Cocktail

In my opinion there really aren’t enough cocktails in the world that call for Lillet Rosé. Today I’m remedying that with a pretty pink drink I like to call a Gin & Roses. Homemade rose simple syrup, Lillet Rosé and a hearty splash of gin, garnished with a twist of lemon and served in a champagne coupe. The flavor is floral, sweet and entirely unexpected! I highly recommend shaking up a round of Gin...

Gin Fizz Cocktail from Freutcake

On my recent trip to San Francisco I experience my very first egg white cocktail. Quite honestly the sound of raw egg white in a drink sounded questionable to me but after taking a sip, I was hooked. Egg white has long been the secret ingredient in classic cocktails and gives them body and that signature fizz we all love. So let’s get started with the most classic of all egg white cocktails, the Gin Fizz. Good...

Champagne Sangria from Freutcake

I love sangria for so many reasons. It’s gorgeous to look at, refreshing to drink, and works double time as a light snack and a cocktail in one! I mean, what’s tastier than bits of fresh pear, strawberry, and nectarine all doused in champagne with a splash of pear vodka? Because this festive drink is so light and refreshing, it’s the perfect summertime sipper to serve at parties. Cheers! Tip: Simple syrup can be made by combining equal parts sugar and water in a sauce pan...
