Impossibly Delicious Cocktail Holiday Edition: Mulled Wine

Mulled wine has helped see me through nearly eight years of blizzard like conditions in New York. It's true. When I moved to the East Village my apartment was conveniently located next door to this little bar that I still to this day refer to as the 'yellow bar' (its name is actually St. Dymphna's.) During the first winter in the EV my roommates and I found ourselves cozied up here sipping on their delightful mulled ...

Impossibly Delicious Cocktail Holiday Edition: Merry Christmas Happy Holidaze

Sadly it has been a little while since my last cocktail recipe but not to worry, I’m back with a variety of concoctions to help you drink your way through the holiday season and the inevitably brutal winter that we’re bound to have since we’re currently enjoying 60 degree weather here in NYC … and it’s DECEMBER. The Merry Christmas Happy Holidaze is one of the quickest drinks to whip up when you're in a bind and ...

Impossibly Delicious Cocktail: The Brazilian Mule

Contrary to popular belief and the cocktails I’ve been shaking up over here on the blog, I have actually been a whiskey-drinking girl for quite sometime. I’ve been branching out if you will to give some love to those other beverages and testing some new and old recipes while I’m at it. Recently, I gave a standard bar favorite, the Moscow Mule, a slight tweak and whipped up the refreshing Brazilian Mule made with Cachaça (Cachaca ...

Impossibly Delicious Cocktail: The Cucumber Vodka Mojito

  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 Mango Splash

Hump day calls for a ridiculously delicious cocktail in my book don’t you agree? So meet my little friend Mango Splash. She’s a refreshing change from a margarita and quite ideal for a hot ass August afternoon. Easy and pairs perfectly with chips and guac!  The Goods:  (Single serving) 1.5 oz Patrón Citrónge Mango Liqueur 1 oz Patrón Silver Tequila 3/4 oz Lime Juice (or the juice of a medium-sized lime) 3/4 oz Simple Syrup 3/4 oz Orange Juice Long Splash Chilled Club Soda To ...

An Impossibly Delicious Cocktail: The Dry Shaken Daiquiri

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

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 ...
