    October 16, 2020

    What’s better than a Pumpkin Spice Latte, you ask?! A Pumpkin Spice Martini! This is such a fun and festive drink that just tastes like Fall. I like to top it with a little whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon. You could also do a cinnamon sugar rim on the martini glass for some…

  • Burning Mandarin

    July 17, 2020

    One thing that I have missed the most these last few months is going out to eat at restaurants. I especially miss sushi. One of my fav spots is Katsuya. Aside from the spicy edamame, baked crab hand roll and rock shrimp, I have been dreaming about their spicy cocktail, the Burning Mandarin. It is…

    September 6, 2019

    As you probably know by now, I love a good cocktail! And I’m a sucker for a cocktail with herbs and/or a pretty floral garnish (see my Lemon Lavender Martini recipe here!). Our last house had a huge rosemary bush and I was always looking for new ways to use it. One of the best…

    What’s better than a spritz during summer?! An Aperol Spritz is THE perfect summer drink! It’s so refreshing, especially on a hot summer day. The first time I had one was in college during my semester abroad in Italy, and I absolutely loved it. During my most recent trip to Europe last month with my…

  • Grapefruit and Thyme Bellinis

    May 17, 2018

    Grapefruit and thyme are a match made in heaven. Thyme has a slight lemon flavor which pairs so well with the tart grapefruit. This is my favorite cocktail to make for brunch. I saw this recipe on an episode of “Giada at Home” (one of my favorite shows ever) and have been making it for…

  • Lemon Lavender Martini

    April 28, 2018

    I love ALL things lavender, but I especially love a lavender cocktail. Even though I live in LA, a cocktail like this is a bit hard to find. So, I figured I would just create my own. This drink is floral, tart and sweet, all at the same time. Plus, it’s super pretty. Serves 2…
