Many things are calling for celebration this month – Black history month, Valentine’s day, and many other exciting things in the works (stay tuned!). This cocktail recipe is one of those that I make all the time, but have never thought to post about. That’s changed, because I made one for a friend Continue Reading
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’m strictly a chocolate person and really dislike any candy that is not chocolate – my least favorite in that family being Twizzlers. Those are an atrocity. Anyone with me on this? Unfortunately for me, the selection Continue Reading
Labor day was a quiet one for me and M. We stayed at home most of the day with the exception of a pseudo-barbecue, but it was the most excellent day because of these mojitos. As you may already know, I love to experiment with mojito recipes Continue Reading
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
Hands up if you are a breakfast person! I love breakfast, people, and there are often times where I’d go to bed dreaming of what to make in the morning. I keep things relatively simple by eating the same thing almost every day – no fault of mine. When I have time Continue Reading
Anyone else out there have a standard drink order of a mojito? Don’t get me wrong, I’m pretty adventurous when it comes to flavors but when a bartender asks me what I’d like especially when there’s no cocktail menu in sight, I seek Continue Reading
