grapefruit spritzer

This refreshing grapefruit spritzer is the perfect addition to your Mother’s Day brunch or graduation celebration this weekend. I love how fresh and bubbly it is. It is great at any time of day, and can be kept as a mocktail, or spritzed up with some champagne for a cocktail. I don’t know how I…

sparkling pomegranate punch cocktails

We are almost halfway through December – are you holiday partied out yet? I have been to a few parties and gatherings, and have a few more on the docket before Christmas, but I’m feeling good about the pace so far. Some years my introverted self gets overwhelmed with all of the holiday get-togethers. I…

relaxing lavender latte

Can you believe it is already August?! I feel like this year is flying by at record speed. July was filled with travel and activity and early morning wake-up times, necessitating more caffeine than usual. The combination of stress and little sleep made this lavender latte the perfect weekend treat. Lavender bushes are in full…

strawberry mint lime smoothies

This warm (hot) weather calls for strawberry mint lime smoothies, or margaritas. Let’s stay in Memorial Day mode a little longer :) We’re back in action for a short work week after a long weekend. What a lovely sentence that is. I hope your Memorial Day weekend was filled with cookouts, warm weather, relaxation and…

coconut chai latte

Winter finally arrived and I just want to curl up in a blanket on the couch and wrap my hands around a warm mug of this coconut chai latte. I complained about the crazy warm weather we were having around Christmas.  I want it to be cold and feel like winter at Christmas time and…
