Cold brew coffee makes a smooth, non-bitter coffee that is especially perfect for iced coffee.Whether you should drink coffee or not from a health perspective is up to debate, but if you are going to drink coffee this is a lovely way to do it.

Florida Coolers are a summer staple made with frozen fruit juice, sugar, ice, and the alcohol of your choice. Or, you can substitute club soda for a non-alcoholic version.

It’s strawberry season here where I live, so the timing was perfect to try to make my own version of this drink. With my husband’s help, we managed to come up with what has definitely become my new favorite ‘summer’ drink.

Remember my lava flow sorbet? Coconut milk, pineapple juice, and vanilla bean sorbet, mmmmm. Well I used some of that delicious concoction to make a wonderful tropical smoothie, and just had to share. It's very simple!

As the temperatures return to warm glimpses of summer, we move back outside. We grill, we lounge in the sun, we have Happy Hour at Home. We get creative with cocktails, and this time of year, the cooler and lighter the cocktail, the better.

This smoothie reminds me of the milk shakes my parents used to make us on Friday nights when we would watch the TGIF lineup of shows on TV.

So, I wanted a green smoothie, but I had no greens, thus I made a fruit-ish smoothie instead. I pretty much never make non-green-smoothies. They feel too desserty instead of breakfasty.

This one includes lovely leafy greens, a bit of spicy ginger, some tart lemon, a touch of green apple, and earthy beets. If you aren't a fan of beets, fear not! Their flavor is mellowed by the rest of the ingredients making for one delicious juice with a gorgeous ruby hue.

A herbal dose of awesome all wrapped up in a cocktail. It is green tea cocktail style! This is our first foray into the world of Chartreuse and I believe it might be a worthy endeavor.

When the mercury climbs past 70 degrees in Seattle, it’s reason to celebrate – especially after a very rainy (even by this native’s measure) spring. So this warm weekend seemed the perfect time to try this Easy-Way Lemonade.

The perfect summer mocktail or cocktail, Watermelon Mojito is is simply amazing cool and refreshing drink. A pitcher of this is must on my party menu during summer months.

Merlot 2007 paired with Raspberry Chocolate Cupcake. Delicious and smooth. It reminded us of chocolate covered cherries, but better. The rich chocolate cupcake with a raspberry center and chocolate ganache on top was the icing on our wine

I think a fresh fruit drink is the best way to relax and celebrate at the same time. The tangy-ness of the lime, the heat from the jalapeno and the flavor the mint makes this a perfect drink for summer.

This little smoothie is a far cry from my standard and as you probably guessed, I made it for breakfast this weekend–it’s amazing how a little sleep can lead to so much inspiration!

I like to whip up delicious drinks for me and the Mister on our date nights. They are great little desserts that we can sip on while watching a movie. Well, the other night we created a recipe we call “The Caribbean Smoothie.”

I’ve always liked drinking my water with a slice or two of lemon–that extra little touch of flavor just makes water more appealing to me. There are a lot of other ways you can flavor water naturally.

This is not the official sangria, sangria. I didn’t use a Spanish wine. I used one bottle of dry white wine, one bottle of rose, but you could use two bottles of white wine. I added lots of fruit, and you can be creative here, as long as half of the added fruit is fresh strawberries. I think this matters.

For Mother’s Day this year, we want you to have cocktail choices. If your day will be spent with fewer people, this Berry Happy Cocktail might be a better choice. It combines a fresh blackberry, berry juice, and Sparkling Rose Wine to create a beautiful drink that will help you say cheers to that special mom in your life.

When we go out for Mexican, I am a creature of habit. I order a margarita on the rocks, no salt. So these mango margaritas were most definitely outside of my comfort zone. And I liked it!

This is what the Widow’s Kiss is like. Sweet, complex and darkly golden, thought-provoking and introspective.
May 10, 2012
This tasty long drink is such a breeze to make, that even if you're pressed for time, there's no reason why you wouldn't be able to fit one of these into your day. It's a classic for good reason!

If you don’t like jasmine, mint, or green tea you may be surprised by this recipe, especially on ice. It is a zinger! Enjoy.

I love champagne. It quite possibly might be my favorite alcoholic drink. I love it by itself. I love it in a cocktail. I love it for mimosas. I also love that calling it a mimosa makes it perfectly acceptable to drink at breakfast.

We like Kahlua. We bought a bottle in Mexico for $5. The same size bottle cost $14 in California. Guess how surprised we were to discover that the same size bottle costs $28 in Montana!

If you’ve ever been to Hash House in San Diego, you may have come across the Greatest Bloody Mary That Ever Lived: The Bacon Bloody Mary. There is no substitute.

I was first introduced to tepache by my Uncle who lives in Ensenada, Mexico. I was musing one afternoon during a visit of his about how much of a pineapple one needs to cut off and discard when he brought up the topic of tepache. He told me it was a popular fermented pineapple drink he had seen often around Mexico City. Naturally, once he mentioned that it was fermented I was intrigued.

Our dear friends from New York visited us this past week and one of our rituals is to hit up a hole-in-the-wall Mexican joint due to the lack of good Mexican food in the Big Apple.Last Friday night we placed a very large take-out order for six and pigged out in the comfort of our own home, with a very LARGE pitcher of frozen watermelon margaritas of course!

I have family members in Oregon and I get out there two or three times a year. I always try to spend a few days in Portland, exploring familiar beer places and trying out new ones.

With Cinco de Mayo on the horizon, I thought I would devote my postings this week to Mexican fare. Today, I am posting a recipe I found on David Lebovitz's blog Horchata. Horchata is a drink made from rice in Mexico sometimes with vanilla but always with cinnamon.

Atlanta reached the high-80′s today. It was beautiful for the hot weather lovers like myself, but food almost becomes irrelevant as summer approaches. Cooling drinks like this one are much more appreciated.
