    Anatomy Of A Mid-Life Crisis

    As I approach a big birthday (why is it that we mainly commemorate the ones that end in 5’s and 0’s?), I find myself reflecting on the truths of life—both life in general and mine in particular. And while I’m old enough to know that...

    Talk To Me in 30 Years

    The other day a friend apologized to me on Facebook for running up to me at a swim meet asking me a question and running away to chase her two year old. She was worried I thought she had been rude. After reading what she wrote I immediately...

    It’s Not Over Martini

    I know school has already started in many areas; in fact, my own kids are going back on Monday. I suppose I should technically post some apple-y cocktail to coincide with it, but I am holding onto these final weeks of summer with a white-knuckle death grip. I love the fall, but I love the easy breezy summer days much more and am not ready to go back to their rigid schedules, just yet. So this cocktail is my way of plugging my ears and pretending it is not happening: LA LA LA LA LA!!! READ MORE

    Welcome Chaos

    It’s so easy to get wrapped up in the everyday chaos.  It’s so easy to focus on the little things. I find myself stressing about the morning routine, my lack of sleep from the night before, the mess that is my house, and the list of t...

    Cucumber, Basil and Lime Gimlet

    I wanted to think outside the box for this week’s Hump Day Cocktail and post something completely different, from the past few weeks. And so, I began scouring the internets to find something new and delicious for you all. When I found this one, it sounded so light and refreshing; plus, it’s the only one that doesn’t require you to make your own simple syrup. I love it when extra work is NOT required! So obviously, I just had to share it with you. I hope you like it! READ MORE

    Pineapple Mojito

    Did you know that you can grow all kinds of mint? Pineapple mint, chocolate mint, lemon mint, apple mint, and banana mint, just to name a few. I had no idea! This Pineapple Mojito calls for pineapple mint, if you have it, or can find it at your local store. If not, your cocktail will be ruined and you should just get yourself a sad little wine cooler and go sulk in the corner. I’m kidding! Regular mint will work too. :)

    Ingredients:
    4 oz pineapple rum*
    4 oz pineapple juice READ MORE

    Felicity Huffman's What The Flicka? - Hump Day Cocktail: Parker's Punch
    Lauren Parker-Gill

    Parker’s Punch

    A little over a month ago, I was in Baltimore, Maryland for my cousin’s wedding. It was a beautiful day, and the ceremony was amazing. When we got to the reception venue, cocktail hour had just begun, and a signature drink, designed by the bride, was being featured. I obviously HAD to try it; it was good. Really good. In fact, if I didn’t share it with you, I’d feel as though I was cheating on you all. Rather than live with that kind of guilt, I bring to you, Parker’s Punch. READ MORE
