What a hot and stressful day! To refresh myself and clear my mind, I made what in Brazil we call coquetel de frutas, which means literally fruit cocktail. Because I rarely drink alcohol, I made mine virgin.

The Banana Daiquiri however, was first concocted over 50 years ago in St. Thomas at the Mountaintop Bar in the U.S. Virgin Islands. A fellow by the name of Conrad Graves is purported to have been the first to add the island’s famous bananas to a frozen daiquiri, and the rest is 'hishtory'

I had always thought that mixing beer with juice or soda was solely appropriate for toxic party mixes. That was until a few years ago when I had my first Ginger Shandy, an absurdly refreshing mix of ginger and wheat beers

This juice here will be a good start to having you on your way in the morning and throughout the day. I'm always looking for a new way to incorporate fruits and vegetables into my diet. Juicing is another way to enjoy your fruits.

A few weeks ago, I did a recap on my favorite drinks for Spring. Well here is another one to add to that list. Orangeade.

I crave avocados. Pretty much every day. By the way, is craving something so much supposed to indicate something? Like, that your body lacks a nutrient that particular food item provides? Maybe I need more potassium or vitamin E.

Mango margaritas seemed like a great use for the tropical fruit. When I made it with a simple syrup infused with mint, this margarita rocked.

My sister Rachel makes the most wonderful mojitos. Every time I go over to her house (don’t worry it’s like maybe twice a year, it’s not like we live next door to each other) I find a way to get her to make me one. Or two.

What could be more refreshing on a summer's day than a cool strawberry margarita? This is a refreshing summer drink made with fresh strawberries. Also makes a delicious after-dinner drink.

The Mint Julep Granita is made from a simple syrup infused with fresh mint, Kentucky Bourbon and Creme de Menthe, frozen and shaved. Simple and refreshing.

Caliente: translation ‘hot’; as in hot-sellers. Thanks to the popularity and our current love affair with Malbec, it has opened us up to other tremendous wine values from South America.

There are few things that make my taste buds happier than fresh peaches in summertime. peaches are my absolute favorite fruit + i look forward to their arrival every year.

Cecconi gamely offered up what I considered to be something of a holy grail -- a housemade vermouth recipe, something I had researched but never encountered a recipe that felt right to me.
August 4, 2012
Initially I was thinking of using the 14,760 varieties of mint I have in my yard to make a classic Mint Julep, but at the last minute decided to experiment and make a Basil Julep. My friends, this is most excellent.

Vodka and olives are basically the perfect drink combination. Unfortunately, I always find the concoction too strong in full martini form.

This blend that we had for breakfast on the third day was particularly delicious...I could have this anytime! If you have a juicer, be sure to leave the peels on everything and leave them whole for the most benefit.

Like many, I'm a smoothie girl in the morning, or post workout. Sometimes, it's nice to enjoy your favorite fruit smoothie with a little bit of fabulousness.

The sweet, fruity melon aroma is so inviting and when you mix in a few tablespoons of calamansi juice, the Filipino lime, then you’ll wish you could have this refresher all year long.

I came up with this idea when thinking how best to use up the delicious cooking juices from the stewed rhubarb recipe above. It’s unusual and delicious.

It's been roasting here on the East Coast, but my family and I have been keeping cool with a bit of air-conditioning and gallons of Blueberry Mint Lemonade.

Regardless of the peaches you have, the Bellini is a light, sweet and “long” drink that is good for summer brunch and afternoon parties. And we like cocktails at brunch and afternoon parties.

Close readers may recall my experience trying to infuse a batch of hooch with rhubarb, which didn’t turn out so well, so I ended up adding blueberries and simple syrup in an attempt to salvage the mixture. I allowed it to linger in the liquor cabinet for a month or more to remove the harsh taste of the white lightening.
