Ya’ll it is the heart of summer and it’s just hot everywhere! I mean, I live in AZ so it’s always hot. Buuuut, no matter where you are, this drink is just the cure you need for this heatwave. I’m not a big drinker, there are just not that many kinds of alcohol that I enjoy. But a mojito? Yes, please! They’re so tangy and refreshing. And really, what screams “tropical paradise” more than pineapple??Read More
I had all these recipes planned for the next few weeks, but then I realized we’re only a couple weeks away from Thanksgiving!!! EEEE!!! Numero uno, I love Thanksgiving! It is one of my favorite holidays of the year, full of wonderful childhood memories. But, numero dos, it also signals the end of fall and beginning of winter. That means any and all fall, pumpkin, cinnamony goodness needs to happen immediately!Read More
Y'all, summer vacation is so close, I can almost taste it. And trust me, it tastes like this Strawberry Rose Sparkler. I mean, the patios are opening, and we all need something refreshing and light to sip on this summer.
I don't know about you, but summer is my FAVORITE! I used to love fall, but then terrible winter comes (I feel like I've said this all before). Blerg. So I've transitioned to a summer lover. I love the long, long days, short nights, fresh produce, festivals, outdoor concerts, margaritas by the pool, and most importantly: time off work! Freedom!Read More
The weekend is just around the corner, so I think it's time to celebrate with the world's easiest cocktail! This delicious cocktail contains just 3 simple ingredients. In place of the traditional ginger beer, I use ginger kombucha. This didn't taste distinctly like kombucha to me, but I drink kombucha daily, so perhaps I'm not the best person to ask.Read More
As this year ends, it's time of reflecting on everything the year has brought. It has been a difficult year in this world. I'm heartbroken nearly everyday about the crises happening on every corner of the globe: famine, war, mass shootings, hurricanes, terrorism, racism, sexual abuse, and hate. So much has happened that makes me feel frustrated and powerless. My only hope is that all of this pressure is turning coal into diamonds, and that we'll all come out on the other side of this a stronger, clearer, and more unified people.Read More
