    Snow Bunny Cocktail

    Snow Bunny Cocktail One of the benefits of living in Northern California is the proximity to Tahoe; at least I hear that is a benefit.  Somehow I haven’t made my way up there yet.  This winter, two of our friends made the 3 hour trek to spend a romantic weekend, and came back raving about a delicious cocktail they had.  We had to recreate it at home.  The Snow Bunny Cocktail is a heavenly rum and coconut hot chocolate.  A few simple ingredients and you have the perfect drink to cuddle up in front of the fire.  This beverage does not disappoint. Snow Bunny Cocktail Hot Chocolate The Snow Bunny…

    Whiskey Cranberry Mule

    Whiskey Cranberry Mule I am Really Into a well made craft cocktail, but that is not always feasible for me to get on a Friday night.  When I don’t have the energy to go out or make something complicated, I rely on a few recipes.  I am Really Into simple, tasty cocktails that can be made at home.  The Moscow Mule is one of those drinks, and there are a hundred variations.  As much as I love vodka drinks, when it starts getting chilly a good whiskey cocktail is what I crave, and with Thanksgiving around the corner, I always have cranberries to spare.  This Whiskey Cranberry Mule really hits…

    Leilani Volcano Rum Drink Recipe

    Leilani Volcano Rum Drink Recipe Several years ago, Jessica & I traveled to Las Vegas together to see Boyz II Men. The concert was awesome. Wanya sweated on me, Shawn gave me a rose & Nate gave Jessica a rose. It was such a fun night. Prior to the concert, we all met at the bar. Jessica, Mark & Derek drank some fancy cocktails & chatted up the bartender. I specifically remember Jessica giving me a taste of her Old Fashioned with the bartender’s house-made bitters. UGH! As Jessica said, “It’ll put hair on your chest.” Now, she loved it, but I just can’t hang. I told them, see you…

    Lemon & Elderflower Champagne Cocktail

    Lemon & Elderflower Champagne Cocktail My grandmother always orders Champagne Cocktails when we go out to dinner, and champagne was the drink of choice at most of our holiday family gatherings.  Champagne makes everything feel special – it turns breakfast into fancy brunch or a normal evening into a celebration.  I can’t put my finger on why we all love to drink champagne to toast special occasions, but the bubbly wine is present for many of life’s most precious moments.  That being said, I love having champagne any old time, but my champagne punch is dangerous and known to make people call in sick to work. I was searching for…

    Namma’s Traditional Homemade Eggnog

    Namma’s Traditional Homemade Eggnog My grandmother, affectionately know as Namma, has several coveted recipes.  One of her Christmas specialties is homemade Eggnog.  It was always out Christmas morning in her big silver punch bowl – and us kids were never allowed to partake.  This eggnog is a little different than others because it is made with ice cream, so you can imagine how bad we all wanted a taste!  Now that I am a grown up I can have eggnog any time I want! Since we moved from Austin to California, I have been missing my annual taste of rich, creamy homemade nog, and the store brands just don’t cut…
