Strawberry Mo-Daiquiri ~ Sometimes we get in our own way –– we forget to slow down and we forget about all of the good things around us. The month of March in Texas is always a good reminder for us to do just that. The bluebonnets are popping out along the highways, the sun is […]

Watermelon Martinis ~ We are not even a week into the official days of summer and I am ready for a break from the break –– anyone else? It was a whirlwind of a visit/vaycay this last week to Vermont and New York. Part of me felt like a twelve year old kid when I got […]

Pomegranate Ginger Sparklers ~ During the holidays my mother would always make a “special” drink for us kids. It was basically sprite (which was a treat in itself) mixed with rainbow sherbert aka the sugar bomb.

Strawberry Basil Sangria ~ When I was a kid I became obsessed with all things strawberry.

Spiked Mexican Coffee ~ Oh baby it’s cold outside. My blood may have thinned over the years, causing me to be extra sensitive to these 30 degree days (yes, even Texas gets freezing sometimes) but my love for a good hot drink grows stronger each season.
