Okay, I know it’s only March, but I was really craving a margarita the other day and these hit the spot and got me so excited for summer. This margarita is dangerously delicious and beyond refreshing with all of the fresh citrus – freshly squeezed orange juice, lime juice and lemon juice. There’s a lot of juicing involved with this recipe (especially if you’re making more than two cocktails), but it is SO worth it!
It’s crazy to think Christmas is only two days away. Seriously – where did the year go?! Good thing we’ve got these festive and refreshing cranberry orange margaritas to lift our spirits. The cocktail is super easy to make and the sugared cranberries (which require a bit more effort) steal the show. I could honestly eat them by the handful. Cheers!
Considering it’s officially fall, I figured it was time to jump on the bandwagon and start posting some fall-inspired recipes. I was itching to make something with apple cider and landed on this cocktail. Although I’m not typically a bourbon fan, I’ve got to say, this drink was fabulous. And it came together SO quickly. Perfect for a get together or holiday!
I don’t know what it is, but I’ve been on a cocktail kick lately (I’m typically more of a wine gal). It’s most likely because it’s been sweltering hot and there’s nothing a refreshing cocktail can’t fix. This margarita definitely hit the spot the other night and was the perfect combination of sweet and spicy. These would be a great addition to your Taco Tuesday!
Kick your summer up a notch with this easy peasy, super refreshing cocktail. It’s the fresh muddled raspberries that do it for me. And raspberries are fruit, so this is healthy…right? It’s been miserably hot the past couple weeks, so I haven’t been using the oven and stove as much, which is why this spritzer became a thing. The cocktail certainly helped cool us down!
If you’re still in need of a cocktail idea for 4th of July tomorrow, I’ve got you covered. This blueberry mojito is ALL you need. It’s fruity, refreshing and dangerously delicious. Highly recommend!
VeeV Spirits contacted me a couple months ago asking if I’d be interested in creating a dish to pair with one of their seasonal cocktails. I gladly accepted the offer, and chose to work with the VeeV Fruit Cup Sangria. The cocktail was sweet and delicious, and paired wonderfully with my slightly spicy grilled eggplant stacks. Both the cocktail and eggplant stacks are making an appearance at our Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow!
I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas or Hanukkah with family and friends. The past few days here have consisted of relaxing, cooking, eating, drinking, watching movies, etc.–exactly how I wanted to spend my time off work.
Yesterday, our friend Estela and her daughter, Amy, came over to teach my mom and I how to cook some of their authentic Mexican dishes. I’m featuring Estella’s shrimp cocktail today, and will post her chicken verde later this week. Unless you’re planning on bringing this as an appetizer to a party, I suggest cutting the recipe in half. You’ll notice in the photos below that it makes a lot.
The preparation is time intensive, specifically de-shelling and deveining the shrimp (it took four of us 45 minutes); however, the end product overshadowed the time spent preparing.
