In my continuing quest to share some of what I deem oldie but goodie cocktail recipes with you, today I present you with this negroni recipe! If you’re thinking to yourself, “Self, a negroni is an old man’s cocktail!” allow me to assure you – my sister agrees with you 100%. (Ha!) However, I know of a handful of rather stylish and chic women who agree with me that a negroni is just a damn fine cocktail. Perhaps you’d like to …

Classic Gimlet Recipe with Honey and Sage

Classic Gimlet Recipe with Honey and Sage

When I was in college my father introduced me to the delicious beauty of a gin and tonic, and it quickly became my go-to cocktail, especially in the heat of summer. I’d come home from a long day working my summer internship and we’d convene on the back deck with a cocktail each, feet propped up as the day melted into night. It wasn’t until several years later that I met the gimlet, which is arguably the gin and tonic’s older, …

Blood Orange Pink Lady

Combining two of my favorite cocktail ingredients (namely, gin and blood orange), the pink lady featured in today’s Valentine’s Day girl’s night is one of those perfectly festive cocktails that’s ideal for stashing in your mixology playbook.

It happens to those of us who live north of the Mason-Dixon Line who know our days of fresh produce are limited and will all too soon be fading into the place where beautiful memories go to live. You find yourself wandering the market with two little boys in tow, literally shaking …

St. Germain Gin + Tonic

St. Germain Gin + Tonic

I’m excited to share this cocktail recipe with you today because it’s one of my absolute favorites! While simple, it’s classic, crisp and refreshing. Oh, and utterly delicious. Before we dive into the recipe, first a little background, because I quite enjoy cocktails and conversation with friends. The summer of my senior year of college, I remember coming home from my grueling internship and meeting my dad out on the back deck. He was sipping on a ice cold vodka …

Let’s talk about the perfect poolside drink shall we? I’m pretty sure it’s this boozy watermelon lemonade infused with rosemary. Mix it up with a really good gin (my favorite is Hendricks) or substitute your favorite vodka if you’re not much into gin. Serve it up in some awesome mason jar glasses and tie a shipping tag around each one so you can easily keep straight whose drink is which at your next backyard shindig. Watermelon, gin, rosemary and lemon…does …
