    Strawberry Cocktails With Gin, Tomato, & Thyme

    Thyme for Tomato

    T he combination of strawberry and tomato may sound bizarre but it actually quite delicious. Everyone loves strawberry cocktails with gin and this unique take is no different! Strawberries benefit from the acidity in the tomato and they help the taste become more pronounced. A little thyme rounds the flavor out and brings it all together!

    Its very summery, refreshing, and delicious.

    A Scotch Cocktail

    Regal Star

    A lot of people have it stuck in their heads that scotch is exclusively for the elderly gentleman. The only way they imagine it is on the rocks or with a splash of soda water. Nothing could be further from the truth! In fact, scotch is fun a flavor and provides plenty of room for the imagination to run wild.

    The Regal Star is my way of showing you that a refreshing scotch cocktail can be created with this much-maligned spirit.

    A Lightly Spicy Blueberry Cocktail

    Spicy Blueberry Cocktail

    On one of my nights off my husband asked me to make him something fruity and refreshing. On the occasion he drinks at home it’s usually picked at random; off the shelf and neat. So this was a request out of place. Nonetheless, I got to digging around in my refrigerator and oh… all I had was lemons and blueberries! I didn’t even have simple syrup made. In fact, the only syrup I had was a cinnamon one. 😑  Right? I decided to roll with it. The worst that could happen is my husband doesn’t like it — but drinks it anyway. Because he loves me.

    Very Approachable Bourbon Cocktails

    Very Approachable

    There are a lot of people who proclaim “I don’t drink bourbon”, “It’s too strong”, or give you a stare like you’ve asked them to sip on motor oil. What the hell is this? We’re American. Well at least I am; if you’re not carry on, no offense intended!

    In all fairness taste is subjective but I believe that you can always find the right drink with any given base spirit for every palette. The desire to sneak a few bourbon cocktails into my friends inspired this drink! 😉

    Whiskey Cocktails with Pomegranate Juice

    Blood & Clay

    I love pomegranate and I love rye whiskey. As it turns out they’re really good together! Because cocktails with pomegranate juice are becoming so popular I thought it’d make for a great spin on the classic Blood & Sand.

    The Blood & Clay was born!

    Amelia - A St Germain Cocktail

    Amelia – Blackberry Cocktail

    This is my twist on the Amelia – a lovely St Germain cocktail. I really like the original but I thought it was a little too thick. Instead of blackberry puree, I use a blackberry liqueur. It’s much lighter and certainly more refreshing!
