TWO INGREDIENT COCKTAILS

Two ingredient cocktails? Yes, I know it sounds crazy, but two ingredient cocktails are not only possible, but delicious too. Today I invited my dear friend Whitney Adams to share some of her favorite simple drinks to whip together in a flash. Check out the video for details. Cheers! INGREDIENTS (FM) 1 ounce Campari 3 ounces Sweet Riesling DIRECTIONS Combine […]

ORANGE WHISKY PATE DE FRUIT

Sophisticated and sweet, these pate de fruit are inspired by the classic old fashioned. Fresh orange and your S.O.’s favorite whisky make these candies unique, and so much more interesting than classic fruit flavors. The best part is that you can easily play with the flavors to make them your own. If you love Penicillin cocktails, try making one with […]

FUN WITH COTTON CANDY!

I love that cotton candy has become a food trend – popping up on pinterest boards, instagram photos, and even on some inventive menus. It’s the perfect cross section of nostalgic and ephemeral. It sticks to your fingers if you hold it too long and dissolves on your tongue instantly. There’s a reason why fairy floss is the perfect name […]

SHARK ATTACK COCKTAIL

Duh Duh. Duh Duh. It’s crazy how those two notes can make you want to stay on the sand while your friends are off frolicking in the waves.  Jaws is still one of those movies that strikes terror into swimmers every summer, standing the test of time – which in the horror genre, is no easy feat. The film’s minimalism, […]

ROSY ROSE-ITO

Today, most wine cocktails are split between sangria or spritzers, but there’s a world of possibility between those two. Enter the Rosé-ito, a mix of mojito flavors with rum switched out for rosé. It’s fresh, bright, and barely floral. It’s also delicious with sparkling rosé for a little fizz. Note: The wine I used, Summer Water, can be found HERE. […]

THE JUNGLE BIRD

Visiting Toronto often is one of my favorite perks of my job(s). At this point, I have a favorite neighborhood, favorite restaurants, favorite streets, and even a favorite apartment I always try to rent. It’s walking distance from Rhum Corner, a delicious Haitian inspired bar and restaurant on Dundas, in the hipster-ish (gosh we need a new word for that) […]

MUDDLED CHERRY MAI TAIS

I went through an intense cocktail phase in my early 20’s. Speakeasies were de rigeuer then, and no bar cart was complete without obscure, single purpose liqueurs and a supply of egg whites at the ready. But I never made it far enough through my catalog of vintage recipes to reach the Tiki explosion – when GIs returning from the […]

SPICY STRAWBERRY MARGARITAS

Spicy margaritas and strawberry margaritas are two of my favorite cocktails – especially when they’re freshly made and not too sweet. So when I ordered a spicy strawberry mezcal cocktail in Mexico City during my recent trip, it hit me that I had never tried combining those two perfect things before. Inspired by that fresh, tart, barely sweet, and mildly […]

ORANGE BLOSSOM

A mimosa is grand an all, but sometimes you want something with a little more oomph. The Orange Blossom does just that. Adding a bit of gin for bite and chamomile rosemary syrup, this low key drink works equally well for brunch as it does for evening cocktails. Plus, the little chamomile flowers are just too pretty.  INGREDIENTS 1 ounce […]
