I never thought I liked mojitos until a few years ago on a trip to California I tried a coconut mojito. Then I realized I just didn't like the original mojitos. Fast forward 3 years it is really hard to find coconut mojitos on the menu in New England. So after last weeks Pina Colada shots I had everything I would need to make my own coconut mojitos but I also had pineapple so why not add those too?!Read More
It's hot as a tropical island here in New England this week which has put me in the mood for a tropical drink. I decided why not come up with a new shot recipe. It would be all the flavors of a pina colada but go down smoothly in the form of a shot.Read More
The holiday season is here, and it is time to entertain. You know what that means right? Time to come up with some new cocktail recipes! Riondo Prosecco was kind enough to send me some Prosecco to try out!
Now I am a fan of wine; red, white and definitely bubbly, but my favorite wine to use in a cocktail is Prosecco. The light, fruity sweetness of it makes a great base and the bubbles add some fun. What is great about Riondo Prosecco is the price point. It is affordable so you can buy a few bottles to have on hand to make cocktails or to enjoy on its own during a night in.Read More
Cinco de Mayo is just around the corner and it just happens to be one of my favorite holidays. Who doesn't love a reason to eat queso and drink tequila?!

But now that I'm a little bit older I look for ways that I can celebrate at home with friends.Read More
I am having so much fun trying out new cocktails each week and this might be my best one yet! A Watermelon Agua Fresca. Agua what?! Well I didn't even know what an Agua Fresca was until this week. All I knew was that I wanted to use watermelon and the new bottle of tequila I had just picked up. Honestly I had thought I made this drink up until I did some researchRead More
