I’m going to be honest with y’all – I have never had a pumpkin spiced latte. I KNOW! AM I EVEN ENJOYING THE FALL SEASON? I guess it’s probably because I make most of my tea and coffee at home, so I’ve never made my way out to Starbucks to try one.
Not to worry though, I am always stuffing myself with pumpkin breads, cupcakes, and any other baked good that can be packed with pumpkin throughout the months of October and November. I think it’s time, however, to introduce a new pumpkin family member to the bunch. The pumpkin pie cocktail.

Y’ALL I MADE BEER! It came out tasting just like a beer you would buy at the store, and I made it in my little apartment. I loved my experience so much that I’m giving a free kit away to a lucky reader! Check the end of the post for entry details.

August is the month in Houston where everyone either stays indoors permanently to avoid overall stickiness, or they accept the fact that their faces are going to melt off and drink a whole lot of ice cold wine and beer.

We’ve all heard of a bloody mary (yum.), but what about it’s beer based cousin? Continue reading “Michelada Popsicle Cocktails” →

Is there anything better than having a fruity beverage in hand and your feet dipped into the pool under the hot sun? Continue reading “B-Y-O-Pineapple Party: DIY Daiquiris in Pineapple Cups” →

A couple of weeks ago Megan and I tried to plan a happy hour with our girl friends, but to our dismay everyone was busy. It then proceeded to hail golf ball sized pieces of ice in Houston, so the two of us decided to have a night in with cocktails and the HBO Go movie selection. The only problem was that we hadn’t necessarily planned for making cocktails, so every site we tried for “make a cocktail out of what you have in the house” resulted in needing to go to the store. We’re crafty and adventurous (obviously, noting the crazy Friday night we had planned), so we decided to wing it. Continue reading “Clementine Sunshine Cocktail Recipe” →
