Strawberry Coconut Rum Punch

strawberry coconut rum

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 rum

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

dixie june pt 1 012

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 […]

Muddled Pear Moscow Mule #LoveNZFruit


Do you know me?  Like…know me, know me? Then you know I am not much of a drinker.  It’s just not something I ever got a taste for.  Sure, I’ll have a cocktail now and again, a glass of wine maybe.  But it’s pretty rare, unless I’m at a mommy blogger conference and I need […]

Cinco de Mayo…Watermelon Moonshine Mojito


When most people think of Cinco de Mayo drinks, they go straight to Tequila. Not me. The very first time I went to Mexico was the first time I was introduced to the Mojito.  I loved the fresh zing of the lime and mint, and the sweet rum flavor.  It just felt like a holiday […]
