Boozy Cold Brew

Boozy Cold Brew

Happy almost-weekend! If you’re looking to step up your weekend brunch game, this cold brew steeped with whiskey is the best version of super-smooth, summery Irish coffee. Mimosas will always have a place at brunch, but if you’re hoping to actually do anything afterwards (other […]

Turkish Mint Ayran

Turkish Mint Ayran

There’s no better way to beat the heat than with a tall, ice-cold glass of refreshing ayran! Frothy, minty, and just a tiny bit salty, ayran is here for every too-hot afternoon and too-spicy dinner. Anyone tried Turkish ayran before? I just discovered it a […]

Frozen Coconut Mojitos

Frozen Coconut Mojitos

June means we’re in the full swing of barbeques and glacier-cold creek swimming and sunset drinks on the patio! The afternoon sun is so intense in the mountains that I swear I burn a little bit more every day. I’ve been blending up all sorts […]

Sparkling Blackberry Margaritas

Sparkling Blackberry Margaritas

We’re triple-boozing margaritas with tequila, blackberry liqueur, and – drumroll please – champagne! Bubbles keep these margaritas light and sippable, blackberries keep it fresh, and then that silver tequila sneaks right up on you. Best of all, those fresh blackberries floating in the pitcher? They’re […]

Harvest Sunrise

Harvest Sunrise

Today I’m sharing a bright, bubbly, celebratory brunch drink… …because this morning, we closed on our first home!! I’m over-the-moon excited and I wish I could cheers each and every single one of you through the screen! We’ve bought our very own miner’s cabin vintage 1900, […]

Red Velvet Beet Smoothie

Red Velvet Beet Smoothie

This has to be the prettiest-colored smoothie I’ve ever made! I’m in love with the deep, rich raspberry and cocoa rim and pretty much everything red velvet. Perfect for your Valentine! Truth: this is the very first time I’ve ever cooked with beets. They aren’t my favorite, […]

Ginger Grapefruit Bourbon Smash

Ginger Grapefruit Bourbon Smash

This is everything we want in a cocktail – fresh seasonal fruit, short & simple recipe, and a whole lotta bourbon. Sweet and smooth meets tart and spicy, just how it should be. Now that Thanksgiving has been properly celebrated and appreciated, I’m finally letting go of my […]

Bourbon Peach Iced Tea

Bourbon Peach Iced Tea

The idea for this recipe has been floating around for months… meaning I’m kicking myself hard for not making it sooner. We could have been sipping this nectar all summer! Better make up for lost time in these last few weeks of sunshine. The idea […]

Summer Margarita Shandy

Summer Margarita Shandy

Oh friends… sorry I disappeared. I missed you. Not sorry that we just returned from a truly fantastic family reunion on the lake, with no cell service + nonconnecting internet, giving us no choice but to completely unplug… and it was wonderful. Except now we’re […]

Limoncello & Arancello

Hello friends! It’s been a while. Did you miss me? More importantly, did you eat anything really delicious? Tell me all about it please. Kirk and I been having an absolutely wonderful time the past few weeks… the highlight being getting married! WHAT. It’s finally official […]
