Cointreau

Summer means strawberries — and lots of them. Get your berry season started off right with this strawberry gin cocktail made with fresh strawberry puree. Normally when I use strawberries in cocktails I muddle them. It's easy and gets the job done in a pinch. This time, however, I wanted to do something a little [...]

With National Margarita Day right around the corner, I figured this is a good time to talk tequila. More specifically, CRUZ Reposado tequila. But don't worry, I also have a citrus margarita recipe for you to enjoy with said tequila. CRUZ Tequila, or CRUZ del Sol if you're looking at the label on the bottle, [...]

Tis the season for all things cranberry. While I'm not a fan of eating these tart berries straight, I love them in cocktails. But then again, I love most things in cocktail form (who doesn't?). Last year for a Thanksgiving cocktail we shared a recipe for a Thanksgiving Medley Martini with the flavors of cranberry, [...]

Garden Fresh Margarita

I'm a big fan of cocktails made with ingredients fresh from the garden. The lemon martini has fresh basil and cucumber. The pineapple jalapeno margarita has homegrown peppers. This time, I'm using some more garden fresh ingredients to give you a cilantro cucumber jalapeno margarita. We are no strangers to spicy cocktails. From habanero margaritas to Thai chili [...]

Hope your taste buds have cooled down from the spicy blood orange margarita. They are about to be tested once again with this pineapple jalapeno margarita. I'd say this pineapple jalapeno margarita is the love child of two spicy margaritas we have already posted. The raspberry jalapeno margarita and the pineapple habanero margarita. The first [...]

Fresh Peach Margarita

So far, we've used peaches in all of our sangria recipes. The most popular is the peach sangria with hibiscus. This time, we are taking them in a completely different direction. Instead of using the fruit to sweeten wine, it's muddled and combined with tequila. The result? This perfect for summer, fresh peach margarita. Served [...]

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 [...]

The last time we gave you a recipe for blood orange margaritas they used blood orange infused tequila. This time, we are taking things up several notches and making spicy blood orange margaritas. How will they be spicy you ask? They will have some hot, hot, hot thai chili infused tequila in them. I had [...]

I'm really liking the Meyer Lemon Infused Tequila. So much so that I could drink it straight from the mason jar with a side of salt. But that's a little unprofessional, or so I've been told. So, I made these Meyer Lemon Margaritas instead. I first used the infused tequila in a Ginger Margarita which was delicious [...]

Christmas Cosmos

It's still December which means we are still on the holiday cocktail kick. Keeping with the theme of red drinks like the Christmas Cranberry Margarita and the Very Pomegranate Christmas Cocktail, we now present to you these Christmas Cosmos! These Christmas Cosmos feature the tart flavors of pomegranate instead of cranberry. They are livened up a [...]
