10 Drinks for Dad

If your dad is anything like mine, when it comes to his cocktail he believes in simplicity. He's all about a well made bevvy, but could care less about molecular gastronomy, over-the-top rims or involved simple syrups. He only has two requirements: cold and strong. Which is why, with Father's Day just a few short days away, I've taken the time to source some awesome recipes made just for dad.

Because, as it turns out, they infuse an instant hit of delicious into your every day bevvy. And we're about to take a peek at the loveliest cocktail class to date, with a bonus recipe from ...

Bahamian Sky Juice

Last week I hoped on a flight to soak up the sun and sip down some Bahamian Sky Juice at Atlantis, Paradise Island.  This, in my humble opinion, is a local treasure.  A mixture of sweet milk, coconut water, and a little ginny ginny gin over ice...well it doesn't get more refreshing than that.  So whether you're state...

Spring Brunch + Grapefruit Campari Sorbet

We're midway through May at this point, and sadly I think it's just safe to say that winter is officially behind us. The trees are in bloom, the weather significantly less crisp, and beautiful, timeless, elegant spring inspired brunches are aplenty. From Sarah Drake Design to Julia Franzosa, there's a whole lot more fresh lovely...

Mother’s Day Champagne Sorbet Floats

Mother's Day is a day best spent celebrating the women in our lives that we love most! Today I'm sharing a simple cocktail idea that takes virtually no time to prep and leaves more time for family. In fact almost all of the prep work for these Mother's Day Champagne Sorbet Floats can be done ahead of time! Stock up on Mom's favorite sorbet flavors, I personally like raspberry and mango, but chocolate sorbet...

The Ultimate Margarita Round-Up

We're all friends here, right? Which means you won't judge me when I confess that I'm somewhat of a margarita junkie. Shaken, stired, blended... I don't discriminate. And seeing as it's Cinco de Mayo and all, it only seemed fair to pull together a margarita bar of sorts. From cajun spiced to perfectly nice, here are just a handful of my very favourite versions. Cheers, friends!

Guava Sangria

I happen to be a sangria girl through and through. I'm unsure if it's the sweet vs. tart combo that's won my heart, or the fact that it goes hand and hand with particularly wonderful evenings (think: Mexican date nights with my mister or catch up sessions with girlfriends). But in my mind, sangria = magic. And ONEHOPE's guava version, which arrived...

Mint Julep, Three Ways

I've always had a love for The Kentucky Derby. Maybe it's because it falls on my birthday each year? Maybe it's because I'm fond of any event you can wear extra large hats and dainty lace gloves to? Or maybe, and let's be honest, most likely it's because of the mint juleps. The crisp combination of Kentucky bourbon and mint leaves in a silver julep cup, well it just doesn't get any more classic and...

Though it's important to make mom feel great every day of the year, I truly believe that most of em' more than deserve an entire day to themselves.

And this year I've come prepared with a handful of delicious recipes, guaranteed to get mom's seal of approval. And if you're looking for more, we have a ton of...

Mango Mojito

Mango Mojito, say that 5 times fast! Or better yet, just get out your favorite white rum and make one... fast. I can't think of a better way to kick off the weekend than with a quick summery cocktail, which makes Krista Perez a weekend genius in my book! Trust me, you'll be drinking these all season long- so it's a good time to devote an entire ice cube tray to mint cubes.

We're always on the hunt for cocktails that feel seasonal and fresh. So when Lynn at Easton Events, along with photographer Tec Pataja, sent us images from their recent harvest fest, our eyes went straight to the gorgeous Persimmon Smash cocktail. With fresh persimmon juice and a splash of St. Germaine, this is a champagne cocktail taken up a few notches.

Boozy Peach Lemonade

There's nothing more symbolic of warmer weather or more refreshing than lemonade. Scratch that- there's nothing more refreshing than peach lemonade. The tart of lemons combined with sweet Georgia peaches and spiked with a little infused vodka, well you now have the perfect warm weather libation. Cheers! Truly, MKR Photography: Rustic White | Recipe & Styling:...

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...

St. Patrick’s Day Cocktail

With spring around the corner, we can't help but daydream about sitting on our back deck with a refreshing drink. With that in mind, we decided to try this cocktail with a St. Patrick day's twist. We came to find that this is one of those drinks that is easily "eyeballed". A dash of sugar, some club soda, a hearty...
