drink: Elderflower Lemonade

When I was shopping at my local Whole Foods Market the other day,a bottle of Belvoir Elderflower Lemonade caught my eye. The vase-like bottle shape, the vintage, romantic label, and the idea of a flower-based lemonade was something I could not ignore, so I bought a bottle and I had no regrets. The extremely light … Continue reading

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

A Year in Review – Drinks

Since today marks the beginning of the last full week of 2013, I have decided to reflect on some my favorite posts I have featured on “Thought I Might Suggest”. I continue to surprise myself with all the new music, food, artists, designs, film, television, and fashion I have discovered and continue to discover. I … Continue reading

drink: Dragon Fruit Cocktail

I have always been fascinated by dragon fruit. The beautiful pink shell that gives way to a creamy white interior sprinkled with black seeds was something I had only seen in photographs. Once I found out it was a mix between a strawberry and a pear, my interest peaked anymore. I recently discovered that dragon … Continue reading

drink: Grapefruit Aperol Margarita

I won’t lie: before writing this, I had no idea what Aperol was but now that I have seen the light, I wanted to find a recipe that would highlight this Italian spritzer. Aperol is a light, fruity drink made with Prosecco and soda water. It tastes like a sweeter Campari, which is perfect for … Continue reading

drink: Strawberry Basil Gin Cocktail with Vanilla Bean

Today, the temperature hit 90 degrees in Washington, DC and for every second I was outside, I was wanting a cool drink to quench my insane thirst. It’s about that time of year to create cocktail concoctions and this recipe is one that caught my eye. Strawberry and basil seem to go together like peanut … 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: 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
