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.

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.

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.

The flavors in the spritzer were perfect for a hot summer day. The Pinot Grigio is a crisp white wine that holds the flavors of the Prickly Pear Syrup, lemons, and limes. The drink was just barely sweet and bursting with fruit flavor.

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.

There is nothing better in the summer than a nice cold beverage when it's steamy and hot outside.

Inspiration comes in so many shapes and sizes and sometimes it’s not complicated or even seems special enough to warrant a story. This cocktail happened in the simplest of ways.

What better to do in the heat than sip on a cool drink? It’s a play on a sangria (that delicious Spanish wine and fruit juice drink), but using blueberries and black cherries instead.

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.

Salty Lassi has a cooling effect on your body with unique digestive and health benefits. It’s also a great alternative to the alcoholic beverages during the summer and you can flavor it with any spice you want.

It was totally a welcome surprise, seeing as martini is one of my favorite words. Well, my friends, let me tell you…I have just found my new favorite martini.

Green Turtle Cay in Abaco the Bahamas is where you will find Miss Emily's Blue Bee Bar, home of the Bahamian National Drink, the Goombay Smash. Invented by Miss Emily in the 1960's, this famous cocktail is still a mainstay throughout the Bahamas and the rest of the Caribbean.

If you are like me, however, come along, and I'll show you how to make this delicious summer drink in less than 5 minutes. This is soooooooo simple, yet delicious.

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.
