Sip It :: Cranberry and Rosemary Cocktail

Cranberry CocktialConfession: I get really excited over a themed holiday cocktail. This post is one of those times (can’t you see my smile from there?). But really, who doesn’t?

It is modeled after Warhol’s iconic Absolut artwork that he created in 1986 which makes it a great conversation piece as well.

Sip It :: Summertime Sangria

Sip Sip Hooray | Sangria Bar

I don’t know if you’re like me, but summertime somehow stresses me out. In my head it’s full of days lounging on the beach, picnics with the kids and drinks with umbrellas — but reality? It’s still the daily grind but with the added longing to be outside soaking up the sun.

Summer. Bliss.

I didn’t fuss much over setting up an extravagant table since the whole point was to relax and unwind. I planned to serve only one cocktail (Yellow Tail Sangria) so I drew from the sangria for color inspiration. Peach and plum flowers accompanied by actual fresh peaches and plums added the perfect summer touch to my backyard patio table.

It’s known that I love my coffee. I’ll take it almost any way you want to serve it up, in a martini, a coffee smoothie, heck I’ve considered an IV (kidding, not kidding). When the weather warms up I turn to iced coffee recipes to keep me going throughout the day. So when I learned about International Delight’s new Iced Coffees I got excited. Good iced coffee that is simple to serve? I’m in!

Sip It :: Orange Grapefruit Mocktail

Sip It :: Meyer Lemon & Basil Margarita

Meyer Lemon & Basil Margarita

This margarita recipe is the last one of our week-of-margaritas and I have to say, it’s my favorite! I saved the best for last (well at least my taste buds think so).

I am mildly in love with Meyer Lemons. My dream home has a grove of these. And basil? It grows in abundance here in the summer so it makes the perfect choice. The combo is delightful.
