Pinch of Yum
Oh, wait. Pinch me, because I might already be there. But I don’t want to leave anybody out, so I’m sharing this tropical smoothie so you can feel like you’re in the tropics enjoying Spring Break with me.

Snappy Gourmet
I had a half bag of raspberries in my freezer (still trying to figure out what I used the other half of the bag for?) and I also had a few fresh lemons that probably only had a day or two left in them. So this morning I thought I’d see what I could come up with to use these items up. I also added a little mint liqueur to this cocktail for a different twist but you could certainly leave it out or if you have fresh mint that would be even better! Unfortunately, I did not have any fresh mint on hand and dragging the kids to the store to get some just didn’t seem all that appealing to me.

The Culinary Chronicles
They were A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! Deliciously fresh in flavor, well balanced, and strong! Who knew I had to travel all the way to Việt Nam to have the BEST Mai Tai of my life!

Confections of a Foodie Bride
When it comes to cocktails, we are margarita people. You know it’s the weekend when you walk into our kitchen and see the small mountain of juiced lime halves on the counter.

Chocolate Covered Katie
Did I succeed in making it taste like a true cake batter shake? Tell me the truth; if I didn’t, I’ll be happy to keep tweaking the recipe. Edible experiments are always fun!

I’m no stranger to a good homemade cordial. J’adore the mix of instant and delayed gratification from the infusing process.

Melomeals
I won't be wearing green today (although I have always said my green eyes count!) but I will share some of my favorite Green Recipes! Let's start with my go to Green smoothie. This is a definite health beverage that I have developed a taste for.

Testado, Provado e Aprovado
No, it is not a "Marguerita" nor an alcoholic beverage. And those crystals are not salt!

Making Life Delicious
I like my drinks to be tart, so this lemontini is right up my alley. The rosemary adds a little extra something that takes this libation over the top.

So, let me tell you a bit about Grasshoppers. I don’t know that this is truly an Irish dessert, but at most occasions within our family, Grasshoppers are somewhere to be found.

Healthy Happy Life
My Spring Forward Smoothie will spring you into a state of frosty, dreamy, sunny day bliss. Bright peaches, sweet strawberries, silky soy and creamy frozen bananas give this smoothie it's own healthy glow.

Let me tell you about the best Margarita you will ever taste. I will be fresh and salty, with hints of lime and orange and lots of other things you wouldn’t normally think of adding to Margarita.

Our Life in Food
These drinks are so fruity and refreshing. They’re very much summer in a glass, which is a nice break from this dreary March! They’re the kind of cocktails that you can sip down way too easily – aka, the best kind.

What's Gaby Cooking
Blueberry Mint Lemonade is seriously so easy to make and it really is such a nice treat! Strolling through the farmers markets here in LA, you can tell that Spring is desperately trying to show up!

The Cilantropist
Today is a day for celebration! Why you ask? Well, this margarita is the very first cocktail ever to grace the pages of The Cilantropist.

Yummy Supper
Chai, made from an array of such flavors, seems a perfect celebration of the abundance of locally-grown Balinese spices. I have always been a fan of chai, but the Starbucksification of the drink has turned me off. Some buddies and I recently had the chance to cook with a very cool, smart, young Ayurvedic doctor and she taught us how to make Chai from scratch.

Cocktail Virgin
On Friday, our first cocktail of the evening was found in the Cocktail Collective book, namely the Farmer's Armagnac. The drink was created by Frank Cisneros of Brooklyn's Prime Meats, and after having the Junior a few nights before, I was in the mood for yet another Benedictine drink.

Cocktail Buzz
For those of you who are aficionados, you already know the power of kümmel. It lies in its distinct flavor: caraway. After all, kümmel means caraway in German and Dutch. It also means cumin; both spices come from the same family. So it wouldn’t be amiss to find some kümmel liqueur that has notes of cumin in it as well. Some producers even add the flavors of fennel seeds to the process.

Drink Dogma
When making a cocktail, sometimes the simplest perspective is an ideal starting point – what do I feel like eating or drinking right freakin’ now??? Don’t force the issue – just give in to those inner cravings. I’m not exactly sure how my most recent cocktail obsession got started, but over the past six or so months, I’ve been treating my cocktails like a hefty portion of bratwurst.

Cocktail Culture
So now to offer those readers coming for Kahlúa recipes a little something in return for visiting me here at Cocktail Culture – RECIPES! However, I am going to defer from the “delicioso” website offerings and the more-than-expected White Russian, and offer some cocktails with more imaginative uses for the liqueur that combines 100% Arabica coffee and sugarcane.

OK, most important thing: It’s pronounced Oh-WHY-Oh LAH-nee. Got it? Good. On inspection, the drink I’ve come up with to enjoy this bottle may seem a bt, um, straightforward to be called a Tiki drink. But the OYO provides a very exotic flavor on its own.

Umamimart
007 eventually settled on the name Vesper for the cocktail he described, naming it after Bond girl Vesper Lynd. As it stands, it’s a recipe for a very dry and flat tasting drink. And then it’s shaken, which further waters down the drink and destroys the last thing the drink had going for it, it’s mouthfeel (texture).

Boulder Locavore
To honor the birthday of our first President, George Washington, I decided to make a batch of Cherry Bounce, a preserved liquor dating back to his days. Cherry Bounce is made with liquor (vodka, bourbon, rum, brandy or whiskey are all choices I’ve seen) sugar and pie cherries. It’s mixed together in a jar, stirred or shaken daily and left to sit and develop the wonderful flavor of the final cordial.

I think the thing I love most about the Bloody Mary is that it provides a good excuse to eat cheese and pickles and celery and olives and delicious chunks of meat. What other drink comes standard with snacks and beer?

So, according to “The Dictonary” (a large collection of words nobody uses anymore) a nightcap is an alcoholic beverage imbibed before bed – usually of the harder booze-variety. Here at Boozeblogger it just means whatever we’re drinking tonight. This evening a certain bottle of gin called Beefeater 24 was looking at me that special way. So I decided to take it for a spin…

Greenore 18yo is good juice, not unlike Scottish mature grains I’ve tried. But hey, Cooley, I liked the smoky nutcracker better!

Infusing your own spirits is a simple and delicious project, and good skill to have at the ready. My very first attempt at home infused alcohols was this beautiful recipe for fresh strawberry aquavit liqueur, from the gorgeous La Cucina Italiana magazine.

Grape Sense- Glass Half Full
I've got four quite different bottles of wine for quick review. These were all tasted at various times over the past week with different wine friends.

I got to accompany winemaker John Levenberg in the One Woman winery as he tested, tasted and planned his blends for the 2008 pinot noir grown by Russ McCall in Cutchogue.
