Dirty Vodka Martini

Tonight is throwback to my college days with a Dirty Martini, featuring Grey Goose Vodka. Yes, I had expensive taste and looking back I’m not sure how I was able to afford a Dirty Grey Goose Martinis, but then again I had a great job through college that paid well ๐Ÿ‘. Grey Goose Vodka is…

Happy New Year & Welcome New Decade

Can you believe we are days away from welcoming 2020 ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽŠ. This was a year of adulting milestones for me because my husband and I celebrated 10 years of marriage, 10 years in our beautiful tudor home and my 2003 Nissan Altima hit the 200K marker (don’t worry, JLo is a champ and is running…

Strawberry Lavender Lemonade Cocktail

This cocktail was inspired by Sonny’s Tavern in Dover, New Hampshire. I’m sure I’ve mentioned this before, but Sonny’s makes the most INCREDIBLE drinks and has AMAZING food this cocktail bar could easily fit any metropolitan city and we’re lucky to have such a gem in our hometown! The cocktail I plan to share in…

Throwback Thursday – Sonny’s Tavern & The Lemon Meringue Cocktail

David and I kicked off the week, with a visit to one of our favorite spots in Dover, NH; Sonny’s Tavern โค๏ธ and of course with a visit to Sonny’s I decided a throwback to my Lemon Meringue Cocktail was needed.

Jackie’s Margaritas

Just in time in Cinco de Mayo here’s my Margaritas recipe.  This margarita recipe has the right balance of flavor, making the perfect margarita!  It’s super easy to make and even easier to remember because it’s equal parts of the main ingredients (i.e. tequila and limeade)!  Plus I add fresh lime juice, which evens out…

French 75

It’s Friday and cocktail time! A French 75 is one of my favorites โค๏ธ. The cocktail is made with gin, champagne, lemon juice, simple syrup and garnished with a lemon twist. I love ๐Ÿ‹forward cocktails and this drink offers smooth, bitter and sweet notes; making it very drinkable! According to wiki, the history of the…

Pineapple Vacation

After visiting Cinco De Mayo last night, I started missing the winter “spring-break” we’ve been known to take.ย  There’s nothing like escaping the cold in the tropics in the midst of cold weather โ„๏ธ and while spring is in the air, it still feels too far away. I decided on this afternoon cocktail because we…

Brockmans Gin & Tonic

Oh, Brockmans, how I love thee โค๏ธ. I was never a G&T fan until I discovered Brockmans across the pond visiting some friends. Gin is like our craft beer here in the US, it has taken off and each Gin has a completely different profile/botanicals unlike anything we experience stateside. However, I’ve noticed more unique…

Lemon Meringue in a Glass ๐Ÿ˜‰

It’s thirsty Thursday friends, time for some cocktails. This drink is inspired by one of my favorite local spots, Sonny’s Tavern. They make incredible cocktails and their food is pretty delicious ๐Ÿ˜‹ too. I’m pretty sure I don’t make the drink as well as Sonny’s Tavern, but my rendition is still very much a lemon…

Adult Milkshakes

Bailey’s and coffee, a match made in heaven โค๏ธ Adult Milkshakes are a fun “treat” from time to time and last night we went for it! I must admit my milkshakes are pretty amazing, thanks to salted caramel ice cream ๐Ÿจ I added 3 scoops of Trader Joe’s Salted Caramel Gelato (this is only a…

Whiskey Blackberry Lemonade

My first “treat” to share ๐Ÿพ David and I โค๏ธ our cocktails. We go to bars and try their cocktails and then attempt to recreate at home and we’ve actually mastered a few (more to come on those). This cocktail, however, was my own creation during the holiday season (this was our Christmas cocktail when…
