I always love a classic, but that doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate a modern update – especially when it comes to cocktails. A flawless take on an old school favorite, this Garden Gin Fizz hits all the right notes, and looks just as amazing as it tastes. Incorporating honey and fresh florals for garnish (while […]
This week has me feeling all things floral, so a cocktail that kept with the theme seemed like just the thing. Combining vodka, lemon juice, rose water and – perhaps my favorite part – edible flowers, this Rose Martini is equal parts beautiful, delicate, and delicious. And, it’s officially on my list of must-makes for an upcoming […]
As I’ve shared in previous posts, I’m a big fan of all things lavender. And this amazing lavender cocktail recipe found on Bon Appetit (and appropriately named The New Bee’s Knees) is no exception. Incorporating dried lavender blossoms, honey, lemon juice and gin, it is all things floral, aromatic, and very, very yummy. XXJKE
As I shared yesterday, our end-of-summer picnic was packed with seasonal ingredients (stone fruits, in particular). So, a cocktail featuring one of my favorites, namely peaches, is only fitting. An easy sangria would certainly do the trick, but instead, I wanted to share one that has all the makings of a new warm weather classic. […]
This time of year especially, I can’t help but incorporate seasonal ingredients into the repertoire – and that goes for cocktails as well. So with beautiful blueberries and peaches only in-season for a short time, I couldn’t resist making this inspired take on the standard mojito for our get-together with Heirloom LA. Featuring some of my favorite […]
I can always count on Annie Campbell to create the most delicious and inventive sips, and the theme-perfect one that she provided for our Cherry Party was no exception. Her Cherry Margarita (she had me at Margarita, but sealed the deal with the addition of muddled farmers market cherries) was as pretty as it was […]
A summer sangria is always a good idea, and for our most recent In the Kitchen, our friends at Heirloom LA and The Chalkboard Mag conspired to create one of the best I have ever tasted. The game-changing, why-didn’t-I-think-of-that ingredient: Pressed Juicery Roots 3. To make our Summer Sangria, we combined red wine provided by Heirloom, […]
Earlier this week, I shared the first of several delicious, bespoke cocktails from a new favorite, Sabi Khalsa of Funmakers. On today’s drink menu: a crisp and refreshing alternative to the standard tequila-based cocktail.
I discoverd Sabi Khalsa and her mixology service, Funmakers, on Instagram, and had to give some of her bespoke cocktails a try. It turns out, we have quite a few friends in common, and we had an amazing time chatting and mixing up some delicious and inspired sips. The first: a Strawberry Basil Gimlet made with the freshest of components.
A classic margarita made with fresh ingredients and a premium tequila is hard to beat. But this one from Annie Campbell’s specialty cocktail program definitely gives the original a run for its money.
As I’ve mentioned before, Valentine’s Day is one of those occasions that we much prefer spending at home – whether it be surrounded by good friends, or enjoying a quiet dinner for two. Either way, a special cocktail is always a nice touch, and this rose-infused sip is perfection.
Last week, I shared one of Pharmacie founder and drinkist Talmadge Lowe’s inspired holiday sips, and today have yet another incredible concoction to add to your cold weather drink list.
I previously shared some of Pharmacie founder and drinkist Talmadge Lowe’s inspired sips, expertly crafted for our Mother’s Day Tea. So when searching for some delicious and innovative new holiday cocktails to add to my arsenal, I went straight to the source.
When my dear friend Kimberly made this Rosemary Rosé Sangria at last year’s Thanksgiving Luncheon, it was an instant hit – and addition to my holiday entertaining arsenal.
I always love a great Margarita. And while there are tons of great variations out there, this seasonal sip from Annie Campbell’s specialty cocktail program is one that I haven’t seen before – and cannot wait to try.
