Easter Sangria

post icon

Our friends over at Voga recently sent us some fun recipes for Easter.  This one really resonated!  I am a really big fan of wine based cocktails, punches and Moscato.  The Easter Sangria combines all three.  Plus, you get the added bonus of being able to wow your friends and relatives with that punch bowl your grandma gave you.  I grew up in the Midwest and no self respecting woman would be caught dead on … Read more

I used the beautiful Rio Star red grapefruits that are available right now, along with fresh lime, mint, tequila and triple sec. Estrella means star in Spanish, so I gave the drink … Read more

Lemon Verbena Spring Fling Cocktail

post icon

Now that spring is in full bloom, it’s time to take advantage of all the fresh cocktail ingredients available to us!

I used fresh lemons and lemon verbena along with Tru2 Organic Gin, which is highly recommend for this cocktail (and others, for that matter). Lemon verbena has a flavor that is like a mild mint with a lemony finish, so we thought it would be perfect for muddling and mixing. And I was right.… Read more

Basil Mojito

Almost no drink welcomes warm weather the way a good mojito does. It’s simple and refreshing! I mixed up some basil mojitos. An easy way to change up your cocktail is to substitute ingredients. By using basil instead of mint, we found a whole new drinking experience without much work.

Try it out with basil or any of your favorite herbs! You can learn more about substitutions and creating new cocktail recipes in our book, … Read more
