While I would drink mulled cider all year long, I try to save it for when it starts to cool down. There is something so special about a warm glass of mulled cider on a cold fall day, especially when sitting around a fire. Simmering the cider for hours with mulling spices and fruit gives it the perfect amount of sweetness and spice, making it the perfect drink to warm you up. If you like, add your favorite liquor for an additional warming effect 😉
This Dirty Sparkling Lemonade is a We all knew we wanted a summer-time, porch-sipping, easy-drinking, sparkling cocktail - because who doesn't love a little bubbles? After a lot of trial and error, this Dirty Sparkling Strawberry Lemonade was born. And let me tell you, that trial and error was well worth it because this cocktail is good. SO. GOOD. I have a feeling we'll be sipping on this for many summers to come.
In honor of Cinco de Mayo, I created a take on the traditional Mexican Paloma. When I was in Mexico on vacation, I asked the bartender to make me what the locals drink, and he made me a Paloma: a tequila-based drink, typically made with lime juice and grapefruit soda. I love tequila and grapefruit so this drink quickly became one of my favorites - my "signature cocktail" at my wedding was a pomegranate-inspired Paloma, and is what gave me the idea to create my own version.
