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

    Summer Makeup Recommendations

    Summer is officially here. We just got back from a family weekend at The Montage Laguna Beach. There was lots of fun in the sun, not-to-be missed walks on the beach, and poolside lunches. I highly recommend applying sunblock—before going ...

    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

    Young Readers

    I took my 3 year-old to the library recently and while she loved playing "let's see how many books I can take off the shelves so I can keep my mom on her toes," I spotted a few books that I loved as a kid and a few I've never read and still...

    Felicity Huffman's What The Flicka? - Pineapple Mojito
    Lauren Parker-Gill

    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

    Meloncello

    One of my favorite liqueurs for summertime is Limoncello. It’s very refreshing and goes beautifully with many fruity-flavored cocktails. Plus, if you are feeling fancy and want to take it to the next level, you can make your own Limoncello pretty easily; and you will impress EVERYONE. :) So, with that being said…Meloncello, anyone?
