Okay I’m going to come clean – I made this cocktail WEEKS ago and totally forgot to post the recipe. At the time that I made it I was craving a vacation somewhere exotic but my bank account wouldn’t allow it, so I settled for the drink version of a getaways.
Welcome to the most tropical-tasting thing you’ve ever tasted.
what you need:
1 cup pineapple juice
1 cup juiced blood orange
1 egg white
4.5 oz white rum (3 shots)
dash of nutmeg
step one: add all ingredients to cocktail shaker and shake vigorously for 20 seconds
step two: remove ice from shaker with a spoon and dry shake for about a minute more
step three: pour into 2 glasses and serve
*A note on garnishes: When I make a fruity cocktail I like be extra with my garnishes. For this drink I used a “pineapple leaf” and a dehydrated blood orange (it’s homemade!) since these are the 2 juice ingredients in the drink. As a rule of thumb I always garnish based on what ingredients I used.

I was waiting for even the slightest hint of Spring to whip this recipe out, and thanks to my friends at 90Plus Cellars I already had this bottle of delicious rosé waiting for me.

Summer is the time for soirées, but a soirée isn’t a soiree without champagne – it’s pretty much just a meeting, and you can quote me on that. But if you really want to wow your guests you’ve got to take your bubbly up a notch with these champagne Jell-O shots. Continue Reading
First of all I’d like to be congratulated on resisting the urge to start this post with “If you like piña coladas…”. It was really hard, people. But on a more serious note, these popsicles are on a different level Continue Reading
