Mojito and Collins Picks for the End of Summer

Nectarine and Honey Cocktail

Fall may be approaching, but that doesn’t mean the end of fresh fruit in your cocktail! This simple sparkling drink is good in a heat wave or autumn breeze, so drink up.

You can try this with your favorite fruit. We love nectarines, but plums, peaches, cherries, or apricots would also taste great with honey.

And I was right.… Read more

Apricot Fizz

If you’re loving the summer farmers market as much as we are, this is a drink for you! Apricots in the store are often hard and sour.

We used the homemade cherry bitters from this recipe. It’s a super-easy recipe, but you can definitely substitute store-bought cherry bitters. If you use commercial cherry bitters or another type of bitters, such as Angostura, be aware that they will be a little stronger and so you will … Read more
