drink: Strawberry Rhubarb Margarita

Just because Cinco de Mayo has come and gone, it doesn’t mean that you have to stop celebrating. As the temperature begins to rise and rise, the quest to quench one’s thirst continues to rise. Strawberries are now in season, making it the perfect excuse to use the fruit in every way possible. Strawberry and rhubarb … Continue reading

drink: Jalapeno Margaritas

I have publicly admitted that one of my guilty pleasures is the Bravo reality television show, “Vanderpump Rules“. Since the finale aired, I’ve been feeling withdrawal symptoms from not hearing Stassi’s snarky asides and Kristen’s catty comments every Monday night. I also miss not hearing about SUR’s menu with includes the seemingly popular crispy chicken and … Continue reading

drink: Salty Dog

I know you’re not supposed to judge a book by its cover, but can you judge a cocktail by its name? In the case of the Salty Dog, it’s pretty safe to say you can’t. This drink with is a simple mix of grapefruit juice and gin (or vodka) only looks like the color of … Continue reading

drink: Pimm’s Cup

Yesterday morning, I woke to the horrible news delivered by Punxsutawney Phil that there would be six more weeks of winter. Six more weeks of icy sidewalks, blistering winds, and winter storms named after popular children’s names of years past. With that being said, I have never been more prepared for this weather to end. One … Continue reading

drink: Moscow Mule

In an attempt to move away from my signature drink, vodka tonic, at a recent outing, I was feeling adventurous and ordered a classic Moscow Mule. I instantly fell in love with the mix of vodka, ginger beer and lime, so much so that I even drink ginger ale now with a splash of lime … Continue reading

drink: French 75

Happy New Year everyone! Last night was a blur of champagne, confetti, and celebrations, but why should the fun end when the clock strikes at midnight? Probably one of the best moments of last night came from counting down with Anderson Cooper while simultaneously watching the ball drop and the sound of champagne flutes rang in … Continue reading

drink: Autumn Sangria with Hard Cider

My very first blog post for “Thoughts.Suggestions.Lifestyle” was about sangria. It is a drink that I will always associate with my college days, sitting outside on a terrace during one of the few days that it was warm in upstate New York. I always thought of it as a warm weather drink, but this ingenious … Continue reading

drink: Candied Grapefruit Cocktail

  I know that grapefruit is good for you: it’s loaded with vitamin C, helps you lose weight, and people can eat half for breakfast and be full (yeah right). While it’s not my favorite fruit, the only way I can digest grapefruit is with a lot of sugar, which is why this recipe for … Continue reading

Drink: Berry Caipilé

As I was getting dressed to go to work today, I couldn’t help but wish that it was warmer. The east coast has been spoiled this winter with insanely warm weather that almost got me believing that it was summer, or at least spring. The past week was an unpleasant reminder that alas, this was … Continue reading

Drink: Bacon, Coffee, and Maple Whiskey Martini

A few years ago, people decided to add bacon to everything from doughnuts to chocolate, which is why it comes as no surprise that bacon comes in liquid form in this martini. I feel like this bacon, coffee, and maple whisky drink is Saturday brunch in a martini glass. One sip of this cocktail will … Continue reading

Drink: Champagne Cocktails

New Year’s Eve is around the corner and in my haste and excitement to celebrate the new year, I picked up a few bottle of champagne. When I came home, I realized they were extra dry champagne, which is not a personal favorite of mine. But when life gives you lemons, make lemonade, right? So … Continue reading

Drink: Cranberry Clementine Cocktail

I have a confession to make: I love clementines! I think they are the most adorable, little fruits ever. I even had a crate of them sent to me as a care package back in my college days. As delicious as they are, I never thought to use them as an alcoholic drink. That is, … Continue reading

Drink: Honey – Bourbon Toddy

  Some people like to drink milk before they go to bed to relax. I’m not a fan of  milk, so once I discovered that hot toddy can be used as a night cap. A traditional toddy is prepared with whiskey, warm water, and sugar or honey (or if you’re me, both). On this website, … Continue reading
