One of my favorite bars in town has a special for classic cocktails on Monday nights. And that was how I tried a Sidecar for the first time (I picked it for it's name—classy!). And loved it! Now it's kind of my go-to drink. But I loved the idea of having a classic cocktail night, so I decided to learn how to make a few of our favorites.

The Raspberry-Lime cocktail combines the delicious fresh flavors of raspberries, lime, and mint with the festive fizz of champagne.

Legendary whiskey aficionado Benjamin Franklin (among his other distinguished titles) once said, “The only things certain in life are death and taxes.” Shouldn’t bourbon be another one of life’s certainties?

Tea fans are very specific about what makes a “perfect” cup. With that being said, I will share with you my favorite tea recipe and what our friends and family insist we serve to them when they come to visit. It’s almost exactly the same as my first recipe for plain chai, however, this has a strong kick of freshly grated ginger.

I stopped by our local whole foods the other day and as soon as I walked in the door their giant display of local strawberries started shimmering like specks of gold and harmoniously singing to me in angel song.

After a short vacation to the Bahamas, I can’t help but still be in my “beach bum” mode. With that said, I thought it would be the perfect time to share the Beach Bum cocktail I occasionally like to pour up.

Ripe strawberries taste like candy and could stop even the most stubborn sweet tooth dead in its tracks. Man these were good! Naturally I had to corrupt them with vodka.

The fun part, after you learn to make the espresso, is to collect cute little cups and sugar bowls or frothers for cappuccino or fun trays to serve your coffee on. And once you taste how good it is, well, you’ll thank me. You can find moka pots in most stores that sell kitchen appliances in the US, so get out there and start brewing! Buon caffè!

I’m experimenting with making healthy, flavorful beverages with no or low calories and very little sugar. My first foray into the wonderful world of beverages.

It took Micronesia to get me excited about a smoothie. Don’t get me wrong – I love smoothies. After a while, though, they all taste the same. Until now. This smoothie blushes, straight from the easy, breezy islands.

The 151 Rum float gives the drink a nice kick and a delicious accent of burnt caramel. If you'd like a lighter cocktail, however, you can omit it and the drink is still a delight. So the next time you feel like trying something new, mix up a Planter's Punch and put your own twist on it -- and then share the results with the rest of us.

The hot chocolate here is worth standing up at the bar for and waiting 10 minutes to be served. It is smooth and velvety, a thick but not at all sweet drink. The hot chocolate, like everything else sold here is imported from Spain. This is Enric Rovira hot chocolate from Barcelona.

Tropical drinks have sort of a bad reputation, but the early recipes lend themselves well to the current cocktail fad. They were originally intended to be carefully assembled concoctions with exotic nectars, handcrafted syrups, and secret ingredients.

This smoothie is healthy, creamy, tasty and nutritious. It is made from homemade pumpkin purée with love.

My favorite beer cocktail as days start to get longer and warmer is the Chelada, a drink popular in Mexico. Recipes vary, but it’s a fairly simple affair that melds typically light Mexican lager with lime and savory ingredients.

The Brooklyn is essentially a 19th century-style Manhattan subbing dry vermouth for sweet and calling for a specific brand of bitters. Light, herbal and a little bit floral with a boozy backbone,

A citrusy lemony beer is not just great for drinking, but for making into this chilled soup

Welcome the Jalapeno Margarita. Flavored with a sweet, tart, spicy syrup, made with half cider vinegar and half sugar, I’m bringing the spirit of the Shrub to this cocktail.

It’s just as simple as the classic Caipirinha with the addition of some kiwi chunks during the muddling stage. The flavor is crisp and delicious with the kiwi flavor solid and harmonious with the lime and cachaça.

I make smoothies with yogurt almost every day for my kids. It’s probably the healthiest thing they eat and they love it. I sneak some ground flax seed meal in there for a touch more protein and lots of omega-3′s.

At first, I couldn’t decide which drink to make. In the end, I decided simplicity was best, and opted for the sleek, streamlined Martini.

To me there`s nothing that tells me more that the spring and summer is on the way than fresh strawberries. Granted there´s some time left until the summer is here and the strawberries i see in the shops are imported but just seeing them is at least a promise…

The latest cocktail to join the ranks of favorite bourbon cocktails is The Boulevardier. This drink is a rare gem considering it was created in the mid-1920s when bourbon was missing in action.

One of my favorite scenes from the original movie was when Charlie and Grandpa Joe get into the fizzy lifting drinks. So when I happened upon the fizzy lifting drinks while reading the book - I instantly knew what I'd be making in honor of Roald Dahl's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

Yummy...an ice cold, fruit-filled glass of sangria is a perfect summery drink, great for BBQs. I love making a big batch in a pitcher, it's pretty and delish.

Junior proms and graduation dances are a main topic of conversation among teenagers this time of year. If you are giving your young folks a party, plan on serving a sparkling, tangy fruit punch.
