I’m calling it a caramel frappé. It’s lighter than a milkshake, and as refreshing as an extra-creamy ice coffee. I use decaf coffee that is freeze-dried and dissolves in cold water, but you can use any kind of coffee.

A typical beer-garita is easily made with one can of limeade, 2 bottles of beer and a 1/2 cup of tequila. But a skinny beer-garita is made using a bit more effort...but sooo worth the reward!

I have been seeing avocado smoothies popping up here and there during my explorations of food blogs lately, and today was high-time to try one myself. I mixed up a blueberry smoothie this afternoon, because blueberries are a lower-carb fruit. Results= success. It gives a creamy, mellow taste and texture, plus plenty of heart-healthy fats and vitamins.

The rich flavor of tequila serves as the backbone to a house of many characters … bitter, sweet, fruity and even spicy heat all come forth on the palate with a nice linger layer of malty goodness.

Upon a recent visit with the doc, daikon was suggested to aid with digestive issues I was experiencing. Armed with nature's prescription, I took to the books to find ways to incorporate the daikon, a rather mild, crispy member of the radish family, into my diet. I combined several elements of the recipes I saw, added a few of my own, and came up with a surprisingly refreshing tonic I'll be drinking every morning during lent.

When I was thinking of cocktails to write about in today’s post, I thought of the Bourbon Slush immediately. I double checked my posts since this is one of my favorite drinks and was pretty positive I had already highlighted this drink. Alas, I was wrong so ladies & gentlemen, I give you the Bourbon Slush!

"Carmen Sandiego" is a cocktail mix of ingredients pilfered from all over the globe - Poire William from Germany, cachaça from Brazil, balsamic vinegar from Italy, Cointreau from France, bitters from oranges harvested in the West Indes. And can't you just see Carmen enjoying a cocktail after making away with Machu Pichu?

The Moscow Mule was created in the mid-40′s when two men, John G. Martin and Jack Morgan, married vodka and ginger beer together. The drink is ridiculously easy to make: you only need three ingredients and it’s perfect any time of year.

So this month in the Food Network magazine, my pal Bobby shares his coconut almond hot chocolate. He uses half regular milk and half coconut milk. But I wanted to take things one step further and see if this would be just as good totally vegan – using all coconut milk.

Did you know that one of the oldest known Cocktails, The Sazerac, originally used Cognac? The use of Cognac ended with the Phylloxera epidemic which devastated French vineyards. The epidemic, along with the American Civil War, made cognac rather hard to come by, so many bartenders switched the Sazerac recipe to rye whiskey which was still readily available.

Chocolate and Tequila. Really, can the world get any sweeter? My love of tequila has taken on a whole new level of intensity since these two flavors happily married.

When I was younger a local coffee house had a drink called the cinnamochanilla. As you can imagine it was a mocha with cinnamon and vanilla syrup. I thought it would be fun to recreate this drink in Martini form.

Now as a woman, chocolate covered strawberries are a favorite aphrodisiac. Perfect for Valentines Day.

The Infurator's aroma contained rye notes and I detected the Herbsaint's anise and Andrea picked up more on the cherry notes. The rye's malt and a slight fruit note from the dry vermouth and Cherry Heering filled the sip.

You can prepare this drink in two ways — as a cocktail drink or as a non-alcoholic iced beverage. If course, the non-alcoholic version won’t be a anything similar to a mojito and you can call it anything you like.

One evening, a few weeks ago, I was contemplating a new bottle of Bols Genever, trying to find a new use for it in a cocktail. I started thinking of a New Orleans favorite, the Vieux Carré, a blend of rye whiskey, cognac, sweet vermouth, Benedictine, and two types of bitters.

It seems in days gone by that drinkers where made of pretty stern stuff, as they would stop into a bar for an ‘eye opener’ to get them back into gear for the day ahead. Sure we still have the trusty Bloody Mary, but it was commonplace once upon a time to have a stiff drink that would shock your system back into shape and get you going, hence the Corpse Reviver.

The Cable Car is a modern classic that has made its rounds on the west coast and in Las Vegas, and once you taste it, the reason becomes apparent.

I love the depth of flavor that this margarita offers; it’s not as fruity as some other flavored margaritas, but it is still refreshing and sweet, and it really brought a ray of sunshine to Kramer and me on a gloomy New York winter day.

In Western culture, the pineapple is a symbol of hospitality. A sign to guests that the house is a welcome place for them. The origins of this practice date back to early colonial America, when fresh pineapples were a luxury item from the Caribbean.

Inspired by the traditional Masala chai tea blend, this cocktail is a fusion of, quite possibly, the three best beverages in the world. This of course being tea, craft beer, and Bourbon.

It’s the national drink of Brazil, made with their national spirit, and it’s internationally awesome. According to some Brazilians, the caipirinha was originally a sort of folk-medicine, used for treating colds and sore throats.

In a health brief your grandmother was right about hot toddies warding off a cold or flu. You can brew up a potent virus fighter by simply stirring the juice of a lemon and honey to taste into a cup of boiling water and 2 tsps. of elderberry syrup.
