Gingerbread Latte

The holidays are upon us. It’s busy. It’s family filled. It’s travel filled. It’s just plain chaos, if we are being honest. Sometimes? We need a break. This? This is a break. A Gingerbread Latte.

Apple Pie Cider Fizz

The air is so easy to breathe now, isn’t it?  Cool and crisp and refreshing…the leaves are starting to change into golds and oranges, the boys are playing football, and the boot?  well, the boots are back in town. This Apple Pie Cider Fizz?  Well, it’s the perfect light and fruity drink for fall! A […]

Strawberry Coconut Rum Punch

I’m not sure if you like coconut as much as I do, because that would actually be a hard thing to achieve. I’m a coconut nut. Coconut pie. Coconut cake. Toasted coconut. I want it. Crave it.  Need it. And now, there is Captain Morgan’s Coconut Rum. And they say good things don’t happen to […]

A Taste of the Tropics…Caribbean Snowfall Cocktail

Caribbean Snowfall Cocktail?  What am I even saying?  Caribbean Snowfall? Well, let me tell you why I am posting this tropical concoction – a taste of the warmth and sunshine, but with a chilly sounding name.  I have my reasons, I do. It’s cold out, isn’t it?  Very, very cold.  I’m not sure what happened, […]

Halloween Cocktail…Vampire Mist

I don’t care what anyone says…this drink is crazysauce.  Nay…awesomesauce. I’ve been wanting to do a drink with dry ice for a long time now, so when Dixie Crystals asked me for a spooky cocktail, I knew it was time. Vampire Mist. Sweet. Sassy.  Perfect drink for a Halloween party, or really, any party.  I […]

Candied Bacon and Bourbon Cocktail

As you may know, I work for a sugar company behind the scenes.  The best sugar company, in my opinion – Dixie Crystals.  Being from the South, I try to support the South, and Dixie Crystals is right there.  Plus, they are so good to me.  Who wouldn’t love that kind of setup? Every month […]

Peaches and Cream Sangria

If you know me very well, you know I am not much of a drinker.  A mixed drink here or there, some Moscato from time to time, sure…but typically, I am your designated driver. But now I’ve discovered the world of Sangria.  That’s all over, kiddos. Maybe I’d not had the best sangria in the […]

Chocolate Covered Bacon Dulce de Leche Rum Shake

  Did you read the title?  That’s a lot of words.  But how do you leave any of them out? A Rum Shake.  But not as thick as a milkshake, just…creamy. Smooth.  Rich and delicious.  Vanilla ice cream blended with Captain Morgan’s White Rum, sweet Hershey’s Chocolate Syrup, creamy dulce de leche…and bacon. Yep…bacon. You […]

Watermelon Sweet Tea

Well kids, here it is, the END of JUNE. End of June? I’m not sure how that’s even possible.  I mean, this weekend is the Fourth of July, then we turn around twice, do a few summery parties or trips, and boom, the kids are back in school and we have our LIVES again are […]
