It’s National Tequila Day! Who would have thought I, typically a non-tequila drinker, be toasting this “holiday”? But it’s also peach season, and as y’all know, I’m obsessed with peaches. So I popped a bottle of tequila and got creative, and this was the result: Frozen Peach Margaritas!
Let’s start with a question: What’s your favorite cocktail? I’m a bourbon girl, so nine times out of ten, I opt for a bourbon cocktail. While I always love a good Old Fashioned, it’s hard to beat a frosty, classic mint julep this time of year.
Am I becoming a vodka drinker? Maybe, and I think I attribute it to finally finding vodkas that don’t burn when you drink them (like anything I drank in college, because it was cheap). I’ve been exploring some new spirits lately, and one that I’ve become quite fond of is Dixie Vodka.
Okay for real, is it spring yet? It’s rained more in the last month than it hasn’t in Chattanooga, and I’m over it. At least this means the plants and trees will be nice and green this year, and maybe we won’t have to worry about a drought? Anyway, until then, I’ve got another cocktail recipe that will get us in the spring spirit: a Tennessee Meyer Lemonade cocktail.
I know, I know, my fondness for sangria has almost reached joke level. But with so many seasonal flavors and blends to play with, can y’all blame me? They’re so easy to mix up that I can’t resist experimenting. This week, I’m excited to share my blood orange sangria recipe that was a quick favorite among my friends.
So, right about the time I thought we wouldn’t get an actual “winter” in Tennessee, Mother Nature was like, “hahaha, made you look,” and sent a nice little cold snap our way. It didn’t get out of the 30s for several days, and now they might be calling for snow? I thought I left snow behind in Pennsylvania. As a coping method, I mixed up a new vodka cocktail that makes me think of warmer, sunnier spring days.
They say fall is the best time for a change, so now I have a new website! I absolutely LOVE how it turned out, and my designer did an incredible job. More on that over on my Instagram. But for now, let’s celebrate fall and the holiday season (and my new website, obviously) with some tasty beverages! I’ve been working on some fabulous fall drinks and I’m excited to share a few with y’all today.
I’m back with another fun, easy cocktail recipe! A few weeks ago I shared recipes for some summer fruit whiskey smash drinks, which were delicious. But the cocktail creations don’t stop there. This time, I experimented with vodka—which I usually don’t go for—and a ginger liqueur called Big O. It’s in the same portfolio as the JW Kelly & Co. bourbon I used before, so I knew I would like it.
