Libations

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…

Strawberry Basil Lemonade

Strawberry Basil Lemonade

It’s been an incredibly long time since I’ve posted anything. Life just got busy. Currently I have 30 drafts of recipes that we made before this slump occurred, so it’s not for a lack of having something to write about or creativity, but writing for “fun” was really the last thing on my mind. Between…

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…

Horchata

Horchata

Horchata is one of my favorite things ever to drink thanks to its cinnamon flavor. Reading this blog post on horchata, I found a recipe to make an authentic horchata and learned some new facts about this sweet drink in the process. For example even though the drink tastes like it is made with dairy…

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…

Pumpkin Spice Coffee Creamer

Pumpkin Spice Coffee Creamer

With the leftover pumpkin puree from the pumpkin pie bagels, I made pumpkin spice creamer to accompany our morning cup of joe. I told you yesterday, I was in full pumpkin obsession mode. Homemade coffee creamer is easy to make with half-and-half and sweetened condensed milk. For everyone’s favorite fall flavor, all you have to…

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.…

S’mores Banana Milkshake

S’mores Banana Milkshake

The latest version of my healthy milkshake that I’ve been making involves all the flavors of s’mores. I figured I might as well use up all of the graham crackers I have in the kitchen as well as those delicious smoked chocolate chips I’ve gushed about on here for so long. Not the most exciting…
