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.

I haven’t made Shirley Temples in eons. I forgot how much I loved them as a kid. I used to always order them in a restaurant. This was so much fun to make.

I love to have a smoothie for breakfast. For one thing, it starts my day of with 2-3 servings of fruit and sometimes a serving of vegetables as well. They’re also very simple; just toss everything in the blender, hit the button, and breakfast is ready!

This drink started its life in a very different form. After a failed experiment I salvaged the remains and turned them into a conventional blended cocktail.

Paul was grilling chicken (for the guests) and tofu (for me!), and I was set to make the sangria and then a peach and blueberry crisp

On a hot summer day, out on the patio or deck, or barbequing with friends who doesn’t love a refreshing glass of Sangria? Ever wonder how sangria came to be such a crowd pleaser? Sangria has its origins on the Iberian Peninsula, when around 300 B.C. the conquering Romans brought grapes vines with them to make wine in all of the lands they expected to occupy for millennia.

Juleps as a style of drink go back farther than we have reliable records, as far back as 15th-century Europe, where a “julep” was a flavored sugar syrup mixed with medication. In Colonial America, mint juleps were first made with brandy, then whiskey as word got down south.

I don't know if you're familiar with the weather here in State College, but when it rains, it pours. And it doesn't stop until at least 5 days have passed. So this is when you need a little pick-me-up.

This shandy is a classic that my grandfather use to drink all the time when we'd spend sweltering summers up in the Eastern Townships of Quebec. It can be served with or without beer and is just as good with both.

Contrary to perception, I am not a big “drinker.” Don’t get me wrong, I like cocktails but they have to taste great to me and I’m a bit fussy.

Not only are smoothies a quick and nutritious way to start the day, but they have an unlimited number of flavour combinations, and if you have a travel mug, they can even be breakfast on the go.

Vietnamese iced coffee, the sweetened version loaded with lots of condensed milk, has been the favourite snack of many in the western world. But truly, that weak and sweet coffee is nowhere close to the local version in Hanoi which is so strong, fragrant and almost liquor like. One sip, and the addiction starts.
