Banana Rum Shake

This is one my favorite adult milkshakes, except it’s made with light coconut milk and medjool dates instead of ice cream! I generally use one date, but feel free to throw in an extra if you want a little more caramel flavor. This shake is a great summer cocktail, and dangerously good! When I was [...]

Watermelon Vodka Slush

This watermelon vodka slush is the best summer cocktail ever! You only need 3 ingredients - watermelon, ice and watermelon flavored vodka. Not only is it super easy, but considering it's primarily made with fresh fruit, it's pretty healthy compared to other cocktails. This is my go-to drink when I'm looking for something fun to [...]

Raspberry Lime Rickey Cocktail

This Raspberry Lime Rickey cocktail recipe got a photo makeover this weekend! I made a batch of these for a friend's bachelorette party on Saturday and they were the perfect poolside drink. :) Raspberry Lime Rickeys are one of my favorite cocktails because they're only about 120 calories and 6g of sugar per drink. Soda water is [...]

Blackberry Fizz Cocktail

I have a similar cocktail posted on this blog for a Blueberry Vodka Fizz, but this one is a bit different, as it also contains fresh squeezed lemon juice, and uses berry flavored seltzer water. For those of you who prefer the taste of blackberries, this one's for you! When I was preparing cocktails to [...]

Fireball Apple Cider

Being born and raised in Boston, I hated the winters growing up. But ever since moving to California, I find myself more and more missing something I never thought I'd miss... snow! Every year, I make it a habit to plan a winter trip. Sometimes I go back home for Thanksgiving or Christmas, other times [...]

Cranberry Mulled Wine Cider

My Fireball Apple Cider recipe has been extremely popular on Pinterest lately, and I can only assume it's because it's the perfect drink to warm you up during the holiday season. But now that cranberries are in season, there's nothing that makes me feel more festive than a hot spiced cranberry mulled wine cider. Up until recently, [...]

Frozen Orange Creamsicle Cocktail

I just got back from my annual trip to Cape Cod. Every summer I rent a cottage on a lake and invite my friends and family over for a cookout, and I always pick one cocktail recipe to try out at the cookout. This year, my yummy drink of choice was a frozen orange creamsicle cocktail. I blended Pinnacle whipped [...]

White Peach Sangria Spritzers

I've had a lot of fun experimenting with summer cocktails these past few weeks. My favorites were the frozen orange creamsicles and pineapple coolers, but they also take a bit of effort since they require a blender. My mom came over last week and I decided to go with something that took a bit less effort, [...]

Mango Coconut Margarita

Whenever I dine at a Mexican restaurant, the first thing I look for on the menu is a coconut margarita. They're more uncommon than you'd think. So one day I decided to make my own, and let's just say... they left a lot to be desired. I try to avoid excess sugar in my cocktails, but [...]

Frozen Mango Bellini

I love me a good cocktail. And while I realize that adult drinks aren't the healthiest thing in the world, I do think we can approach our cocktail fun from a healthier perspective. Maintaining a clean diet doesn't mean you have to give up the foods and drinks you love entirely, it just means finding a more nutritious substitute for unhealthy ingredients. [...]

Boozy Snow Cones

I made boozy snow cones for the first time on Saturday. My friends and I went to Palm Springs for a girls weekend, and these were the perfect poolside drinks. At one point, my friend said to me "Is there even any alcohol in this?" to which I replied "A lot! Be careful." She then proceeded to [...]

Electric Lemonade Cocktail

I have a thing for blue drinks. Or really, any drink that looks pretty. My go-to cocktail tends to be flavored vodka and soda water, since it's the healthiest low calorie, sugar-free option. But after a while, a plain ole transparent drink tends to get a little boring. So I have to improvise. I have [...]

Frozen Berry Sangria

I never realized how easy it was to make frozen sangria until I was stranded by the pool one day with nothing but a bottle of red wine, a few bags of frozen fruit. Turns out, that's all you need! It's entirely up to you which fruit you want to add. Personally I like to [...]

Blueberry Vodka Fizz

I love pretty drinks. Especially if they're blue. Makes me feel like I'm drinking adult Kool-Aid. I have so many cocktail ideas (especially with all the new vodka flavors nowadays - whipped cream... cookie dough...) but this Blueberry Vodka Fizz recipe is one of my favorites. It's simple, tasty, and a great low-calorie option since [...]

Rainbow Sangria

Sauvignon Blanc has recently become my new favorite white wine. I'm not sure what took me so long to fall in love with it, but it really is the perfect blend between sweet and sour. I discovered a gorgeous rainbow sangria photo on Pinterest by Gimmesomeoven (her pictures and recipes are amazing!) and I knew I had [...]
