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 [...]

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 [...]

Red Wine Berry Spritzer

When it comes to alcohol, red wine is one of the best low-sugar options. But sometimes it can be a bit too bitter when I'm in the mood for something sweet, which is why wine spritzers are great. My favorite is a red wine berry spritzer, which is really just a combo of red wine [...]

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!

Skinny Dirty Shirley Cocktail

I just learned how to make my own homemade grenadine syrup. Which is a total game changer for cocktail mixing, because I love whipping up my own drinks from scratch. I also love me a good Dirty Shirley (which, for those of you who are unfamiliar, is a Shirley Temple with a shot of vodka.) But [...]

Cucumber Melon Margarita

My favorite tapas restaurant in Los Angeles, Red O, has a fantastic drink menu, and their cucumber melon margarita was always my favorite. Unfortunately, they revised their menu, and my favorite drink is no longer on it :( Thus, I now have no choice but to make my own. These margaritas don't contain any refined sugar, [...]
