    The Summer Drink You Need to Make ASAP

    Fall might be right around the corner, but for now, the heat index and my lifeless hair say otherwise. On days when it’s hotter than hot, all I can think about is getting my hands on something cool and refreshing. You, too? Well then, you’re in luck! Happy hour is starting early and today’s special is the Ginger Mint Pineapple Margarita. It’s sweet and spicy and so good, you’ll wonder how you ever did Taco Tuesday without it. Now, the important question: salt on the rim or sugar?

    Karate Cowboy 4

    My friend Max introduced me recently to Karate Cowboy, a white whiskey infused with sake. I realize this sounds like an interesting combination, and that’s because it is. But it works. Instead of the traditional margarita made with tequila, the Ginger Mint Pineapple margarita is made with Karate Cowboy’s Ginger Mint flavor — a refreshing combination of crisp ginger and cooling mint. The ginger, mint, lime and pineapple juices blend effortlessly together like one big happy boozy family. The flavor explosion is so good, I’d like to see you try to stop at one.

    Here’s how to make this delicious summer drink at home:

    Ginger Mint Pineapple Margarita

    • 2 oz Ginger Mint Karate Cowboy
    • 1/2 oz key lime juice
    • Top with pineapple juice
    • Serve over ice
    • Coat rim with sugar or salt (optional)

    Karate Cowboy

    Karate Cowboy is the brain child of Columbus, Ohio-based Revolution Experiment. It’s basically brand new to the spirits market, and I have a feeling it’s going to be Fireball huge. If you live in Ohio, you can find Karate Cowboy at various bars and liquor stores across the state. Visit their website to find a location near you.


    5 Things to Make for Easter Sunday

    Easter is this weekend, so I did what any normal person looking for recipes would do. I visited Pinterest and (four hours later) gathered five recipes to try. Scroll below for pastries, salads, light bites and of course — mimosas. Cheers!

    Tart Cherry and Chocolate Pastriestart-cherry-danish

    When I think Easter, I think brunch. And when I think brunch, I think pastries. Lots and lots of pastries. These pastries from Love and Olive Oil combine a tart flavor from the cherries with a sweet and savory flavor from the chocolate. I’ll have four, please.


    Deviled eggs are a bit of a tradition in my family. You can count on my Nonna to pile them on a plate every year. Whether you love them or hate them, chances are you’ve seen them around. I’m a huge fan of deviled eggs, and this recipe from Oh Sweet Basil is definitely one to try.

    Tea Cup Salads

    salad-tea-cupsI had planned to make a big salad, but I can’t help but fall for these adorable little tea cup versions from Hotel Gratitude. Seriously, how cute are they? I can’t even.

    Spring Pea Crostinispring-pea-crostiniI had to restrain myself from attempting to reach into the computer screen and grab one of these for myself. They look so good, don’t they? I’m a huge fan of crostini, and I love this particular version’s mix of flavors and colors. Visit What’s Gaby Cooking to get the recipe.
