Diner en Blanc NYC


Wednesday, September 16, 2015

There are only a few rare experiences in ones life where you have the chance to say that you dined with 5,000 mostly random strangers on a pier overlooking the Hudson River and downtown Manhattan. This particular experience, Diner en Blanc, had been on my "NY bucket list" for a few years and was well worth the wait. I was invited on by the sweetest team at Apothic Wines, who aside from knowing their wine also know how ...

Picnicking in the Park


Monday, September 7, 2015

When I’m heading into a long weekend I always like to have fun plans, be it a rooftop soiree, brunch or just enjoyable things to look forward to help speed the short week along.  Typically (as with most weekends) these plans will inevitably involve friends, food and drinks. Aside from an outdoor BBQ one of my favorite summer activities is a good picnic in the park, I have this penchant for being outdoors as much ...

Impossibly Delicious Cocktail: The Cucumber Vodka Mojito


Thursday, August 27, 2015

  I refuse to admit that summer is winding down, hence a last minute beach trip coming up this weekend and a much need day on the lake happening in a few weeks. Clearly extending summer as long as possible over here is a top priority! Not only with trips but I’ve also been getting creative with my cocktail shaker. I was recently introduced to Austin Cocktails {snag them here!} by a few fellow Texas ladies and ...

An Impossibly Delicious Cocktail: The Dry Shaken Daiquiri


Monday, July 20, 2015

Rum cocktails and summer (or a tropical beach getaway!) go hand in hand. So why not shake it up a little bit and move away from the typical frozen concoctions that you're used to seeing with a brightly colored umbrella popping out and try a shaken daiquiri.  I like this particular recipe that uses Brugal Extra Dry Rum, which helps create a more balanced cocktail but it's also the perfect complement to a variety of seasonal ingredients that you can toss in. The Goods:  (Single ...

An Impossibly Delicious Cocktail: The Wildberry Smash


Tuesday, July 7, 2015

I'd like to rename this week's cocktail, Summertime in a Glass, because seriously what can be more perfect for a hot summer day sitting by the pool than a chilled glass of fresh berries, mint and a little Belvedere Wild Berry vodka. Nothing. Not to mention it is one of the easiest cocktails to whip up and you likely already have everything you need for it. The Goods (for one serving):  1.5 oz Belvedere Wild Berry Half a lemon, cut into ...
