Even if you're not a fan of the holiday drink, there's something about the yummy scent of eggnog that gets you into the spirit of the season. Sure, you can get any number of commercial nogs, many of which are flavored with everything from peppermint to sugar cookie, but everyone knows that it's like chocolate chip cookies: homemade is always better.
From limoncello to summer shandy, it is the season of the lemon! The season's almost gone, and while you can pretty much get limoncello year-round, if you are enjoying fresh lemony cocktails, now is the time to make your favorites before fall descends. Don't have a favorite yet? Try any one of these!
One of my best friends is having us over for a barbecue on Friday and I'd like to bring something to drink that's fun but affordable AND portable. I do enjoy making punch (spiked or otherwise) but I always do the sherbert punch that's quite messy and not at all portable. You can pack the ingredients and put it together at the event itself, but it just takes so much longer. I'd like to keep cleanup to a minimum!
When it comes to summer, there's a lot to love. From longer days to time off with friends and family, it's the favorite time of year for many people. One of the best things about the hot season is the number of fruity drinks that are available! With so much fruit in season, it's a great time of year to enjoy fruity beverages.
If you're a mimosa drinker, you may love the French 75 cocktail. It's quite similar but it's also got a tasty twist! A mixture of gin, sugar, lemon juice and champagne, it's on the stronger side, making it the perfect choice if you're looking to really unwind at brunch! The drink also has an elegant history of being created in Paris during World War I. The kick in the beverage was said to be akin to being hit by a French 75mm field gun, hence the name.
Over the weekend, I attempted to make some prosecco infused with plums and thyme simple syrup. Oh, was it a disaster. I'm thinking that I just bought the wrong bubbly (hopefully that was it), but maybe it's also just not the drink for me. My question is, do you have a great recipe for a fruity drink infusion that you can share?
Raspberries are one of nature's perfect foods. Not only are they low in sugar and tasty as can be, but they are also full of nutrients and incredibly versatile. Raspberry flavored drinks are some of the most incredible beverages. Whether you include raspberry syrup in your tea or freshly-muddled berries in your cocktail, you're bound to experience a treat! One of the most delicious raspberry cocktails of the season is the raspberry sorbet bellini.
