Vampire’s Kiss

Vampire's Kiss

  I still can't get over Halloween, so I'm going to keep posting my spooky drinks. This one uses my delicious Blackberry Liqueur and grenadine, and between those two ingredients and the cranberry juice, it's a luscious red color. It's also nice and tart, which I appreciate. If you feel like serving it for a fall feast, I won't quibble. I'll just keep the Halloween flow going a little longer. Food pairing: All Day I…

Christmas in August Margarita

Christmas in August Margarita

  In my quest to find other uses for my Diet cranberry juice and coconut milk, I came across this recipe from The Spruce Eats and decided to de-carb it.

It was so good I couldn't save the recipe until the holidays,…

Cranberry Margarita

Cranberry Margarita

Food pairing: Keto Cranberry Bliss…

This boozy version is inspired by RumChata, which is a (very sugary) cream-based liqueur with rum. You’re welcome. Food pairing: 4505 Meats Chicharrones. I love the Jalapeño Cheddar flavor but take your pick.

Holiday (or Anytime) Rum Punch

Holiday (or Anytime) Rum Punch

  I suppose it’s the sweet-spice bitters and spiced rum that remind me of the holidays when I drink this punch. You can substitute spiced rum with just about any other kind of rum and play with the bitters, but together they sing a jaunty carol for me. And don’t limit yourself to the winter holidays; this punch is fabulous year-round. For a party, multiply the recipe as much as you need to and stir the first…
