The perfect way to start off the week is with a cocktail! Normally I favor juice and lots of water on Monday’s, but I wanted to share this specialty cocktail I had made for the Easter party I had last weekend. It was my first time using Benedictine, which is an herbal liqueur and surprisingly strong. After a few glasses you will definitely be switching over to water! As we kept pouring glasses we started to use a little less than 3/4 oz, but you can easily mix it to your taste.
Weekend Cocktail Recipe: Peppermint Bark Martini
One of my favorite holiday treats is peppermint bark. I cannot wait for it to come out in the stores each holiday season. This martini has the same smooth white chocolate flavor with a peppermint kick! Try them for your party or for sitting by the fire after a long day of holiday decorating or shopping.
Recipe: Lime and a Coconut Cocktail
Earlier this week we posted gluten-free recaps (part 1 and part 2) of our recent vacation to St. Croix in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Today it's time to share a recipe inspired by the trip. It's a frozen cocktail we're calling a Lime and a Coconut.
Organic Ginger-Orange Cocktail Made with Bourbon and Sake
I had the pleasure of recently eating and drinking my way through all of California, all while road testing a Chevy Volt. I put some 2,000 miles on the car in just a three week period, visiting everything from sustainable food producers to backyard beekeepers. It was such an amazing and eye-opening trip. One of my many stops included the eco-friendly winery, Medlock Ames.
Mexican Shrimp Cocktail with Avocado Salsa
This Mexican shrimp cocktail is so colorful and appetizing. The pink of the shrimp, the red of the tomato and the green of the cucumber and avocado make this dish look so tempting. You can see from the picture how arranging one big, juicy shrimp on top looks really good, especially if you leave the tail on. In fact you can leave all the tails on but it is best to peel the shrimp so people can eat them more easily and not have to stop every time they want to eat a shrimp and have to peel them.
