Mezcal Margarita

Mezcal Margarita

Wow has this been the best cocktail discovery in our lives. We’re both huge margarita fans, so when we picked up a bottle of mezcal from our local liquor shop and were wondering what cocktail to craft with it, our minds turn there. Margaritas. Smoky and spicy, with a sweet lime finish, these are hard…

Apple + Pear Sangria

Apple + Pear Sangria

This sangria is the perfect introduction to fall flavors when you live in Southern California. It’s some of fall’s best flavors (apples, pears, and cinnamon), but it’s cold and refreshing when it is still almost 100 degrees outside. It’s a win-win situation for anyone yet to experience a glimpse of fall weather. Apple + Pear…

Frozen Raspberry Margaritas

Frozen Raspberry Margaritas

Dustin and I prefer margaritas on the rocks, but sometimes a frozen margarita really hits the spot on a hot day. We had some fresh berries in the fridge from the farmer’s market, so we decided to make some blackberry margaritas. You can use any berry desired, but that’s what we had. Just make sure you…

Boozy Christmas Eggnog

Boozy Christmas Eggnog

We had a very merry Christmas here in 70+ degree LA weather. We exchanged gifts (with most of them going to Bonnie). We ate well. And we drank boozy eggnog. We followed this recipe (minus the malt and chocolate bitters) for our Christmas Nog, and I couldn’t be happier. Erin thought it was a tad too…

The Wafoodie Mary

The Wafoodie Mary

I never used to be a Bloody Mary fan. During last year’s football season, I gave it another shot and ordered a Meat Mary at The Tap House. A Bloody Mary with Bakon Vodka and a half submerged crispy piece of bacon came out to greet me. And, for the first time in my life I…

Peach Bellinis

Peach Bellinis

We developed quite a fun tradition of hitting one of the local restaurants that opened their bar area on Sunday mornings to watch football. We’d order brunch (though the food was quite mediocre). Dustin would get beer or even a Bloody Mary as he developed a taste for them, and I could get $3 mimosas.…

Mojito Slushies

Mojito Slushies

I honestly think this might be the best mojito I’ve ever had, and you don’t have to do any muddling. The blender does all the work for you. Plus, they are extra refreshing on a hot day since they are icy, like a frozen margarita. The texture reminded us of a slushy, so that’s what…

Watermelon Margarita

Watermelon Margarita

We may have thought that watermelon, feta, mint salad was the best way to eat watermelon, but it’s definitely not. Actually it’s with tequila and Cointreau in the form of a margarita. We used the leftover watermelon from the salad to make margaritas the following evening. The watermelon is actually pretty subtle in this recipe…

Homemade Eggnog (For Two)

Homemade Eggnog (For Two)

Now that it’s December, it is officially the holiday season! I’m not one of those people that like seeing Christmas decorations up before Thanksgiving, but by the start of December, I am ready for gingerbread, peppermint, and eggnog! Both my Aunt Kathleen and my mom really like to decorate for the holiday, so I guess…

Raspberry Mojitos

Raspberry Mojitos

What do you do when the mint plant in your garden is overflowing with fragrant leaves? Make mojitos, of course! We made classic mojitos in the past, and we’ve definitely learned to appreciate the art of mojito making. It’s definitely a skill to properly muddle the mint; it’s not a drink to order at crappy…
