Blood Orange Whiskey Punch

You may remember from our downright delicious Holly Jolly Amaretto-Bourbon Punch (and if you don't, do yourself a favor and check it out!) that I'm not too into whiskey unless it's masked by some fruity stuff. Now that we're well into fall, it only seems appropriate to combine blood orange with the warm-your-bones flavor of Maker's [...]

Starbucks rocked my world when they introduced the Vanilla Spice Latte at the beginning of the year. The sweet vanilla combined with spicy cardamom had me wondering how I could recreate it in cocktail form. After a few tries I think I succeeded with this Vanilla Spice Martini. For those that don't know me, vodka [...]

Summer is my favorite time of year for many reasons, one being the experimenting I do with various mojitos, vodka cocktails, and sangria recipes. To be honest, any drink with vodka and fresh organic fruit will tickle my fancy. One sip of this kiwi vodka cocktail and you will know what I'm talking about. For [...]

Last summer, we created the Chocolate Mint Mojito, Red Dragon Mojito, and Strawberry Basil Mojito using fresh mint from the garden. Now that this summer is fast approaching, we hope you have your herbs for cocktails planted. You'll need the orange mint for this vanilla vodka cocktail recipe. There are over 600 varieties of mint, [...]

You wouldn't know it from our Square One Organic Cucumber Vodka and Tahoe Blue Vodka reviews, but we also enjoy our gin. More specifically, we really enjoy the smooth taste of Bombay Sapphire Gin. About Bombay Sapphire Gin Introduced in 1987, Bombay Sapphire Gin is infused with ten high quality botanicals, including lemon peel, almonds, liquorice, and [...]

Our last two spirit reviews were on Domaine De Canton Ginger Liqueur and Tahoe Blue Vodka. We also told you about Q Tonic Water which makes a superior vodka tonic. This time we're sharing a cucumber vodka (since we are vodka lovers) that we think you'll really enjoy. The bottle of Square One Organic Cucumber [...]

Blood Orange Vodka Cocktail

Spring is here which means Blood Oranges are ripe and ready to squeeze and muddle into cocktails. We've used this delicious fruit in our Blood Orange Martini and Blood Orange Ginger Cocktail, so it's safe to say we're big fans. This time, we are using them in this blood orange vodka cocktail with Grand Marnier. [...]

When you find yourself with a bottle of Jack Daniel's Tennessee Honey on hand, there's really only one thing to do with it... Mix it up some fresh squeezed citrus and call it a day. You could also drink it straight out of the bottle, but we'll let someone else tell you about that. Instead, [...]

Bah Humbug Martini

Do you feel your inner Grinch coming out this holiday season? Skip the pomegranate cocktails and the cranberry margaritas. Make yourself a Bah Humbug Martini instead. One sip and you'll be feeling so much better. Christmas is only two weeks away and I don't know about you, but I'm about burned out. Between the crowds, [...]

Holly Jolly Amaretto Bourbon Punch

Although I'm not a big fans of bourbon, this full bodied Amaretto Bourbon punch is just sweet enough for even the pickiest of party go-ers. Martinelli's sparkling apple cider gives it an unexpected fizz and the cherry? A holiday touch. A very nice holiday touch. The most important step in this recipe is using American [...]
