The fizzy, tart, and refreshing Moscow Mule is a favorite—and the best part is of course the copper mug it’s served in. A girlfriend recently shared this healthy “mule makeover” with me though and I love it even more than the original.
Don’t try to make your own clay cup, or smash your favorite mug today. But make some homemade chai and try, even if for five minutes, to ease your mind into the present moment. Sipping hot, homemade chai tea. Doesn’t that feel good?
With a big warm smile, the bartender handed me a Carajillo. It’s a cocktail made from liquor and coffee. Sometimes it’s served hot, but mine was cold. And damn was it good.
I LOVE watermelon. And when it’s so hot outside, it’s the most refreshing treat. Whole watermelons are typically crispier than their pre-cut counterparts, but I’m not often able to eat the whole thing before it goes bad. Cue: frozen watermelon.
When I was little, frozen lemonade was the house slumber party cocktail. Kind of like a frozen margarita, but instead of lime and tequila it’s lemon and strawberry. Even when you’re 8, sipping a mocktail out of a fancy glass just feels grown up.
Heart-shaped marshmallows or not, you’ll love this coffee. Blended with coconut oil, it becomes creamy and frothy but without any dairy. And, the coconut oil generally keeps me full for awhile.
A typical pumpkin spice latte is loaded with sugar, syrups, and artificial flavorings. Just a grande pumpkin spice latte (with no whip) has 49 grams of sugar—that’s more sugar than THREE servings of ice cream.
I often drink very green smoothies (spinach, coconut milk, chia, flax, coconut meat, lemon juice, and a few blueberries) so this flavor combination was a really nice change.
While rosé is perfectly delicious and refreshing right out of the bottle, it reaches new heights as frosé—a brut rosé sweetened ever so slightly with homemade lavender simple syrup then frozen to a slushy consistency.
While this patriotic icy champagne bucket is reminiscent of childhood summer popsicles, it’s sophisticated enough to make any adult smile and wonder how you did it.
Biodynamic wine is produced using only natural and holistic practices. For example, cows might be onsite to make compost and fertilize the vines; and rather than machinery, sheep prune the vineyard. The symbiotic relationship between the environment and the grapes makes a biodynamic vineyard flourish.
Why wait in line for brunch and bottomless mimosas (with undesirable juice-to-champagne ratios) when you can recreate your own mimosa bar at home? Give your traditional mimosa bar some oomph with a few fun, unexpected twists: flower ice cubes, fruit peel cut-outs, berry skewers, unicorns, and blood orange!
My fiancé, who moonlights as our in-house bartender, introduced me to the 3-2-1—a clean, tangy margarita perfect for ringing in Cinco de Mayo.* Sometimes I prefer “3-2-2” with more lime juice, so adjust the proportions to your liking.
This spring, bachelorette parties, baby showers, and bridal showers abound. If you’re on deck for party planning, borrow this trick to dazzle your guests. Because what’s more fun than baby roses bobbing in your rosé?
What’s the best way to start your morning on St. Patrick’s Day? With an Irish Coffee o’ course!
Recently I complained about how rainy and dreary it had been in San Francisco, so Lindsay shared this recipe which I love. Why? Because this sweet treat is made with coconut sugar and cacao, two ingredients we can feel great about consuming. And I’m crazy about the coconut whipped cream.
Passion fruit sounds exotic, doesn’t it? As if it were only available on some tropical island. But I’ve got exciting news for you: Most local grocery stores carry it, and it’s extremely easy to use. You can usually find it near the kiwis and mangoes.
Just thinking about milk and vodka makes my stomach turn, so I created this version using coconut milk instead. You don’t taste the coconut flavor, but it gives the cocktail a rich, creamy texture.
I’m a ‘tini girl. I’ll ask even the burliest, tattoo-sleeved bartender, “Can you make a lemon drop?” Is it the strong vodka and the tart lemon juice? No ma’am. It’s that festive glass and sugared rim. Ohhh that sugared rim. I’ve got a little trick that will make every party guest swoon.
