Firefly Sweet Tea Vodka comes to us from Wadmalaw Island off the coast of South Carolina and close to Charleston. In homage to its Southern roots, it combines tea grown on a plantation off the coast of Charleston with Louisiana can sugar to produce real sweet tea that is infused into a quadruple distilled vodka.

Pico de Gallo

post icon

Serving chips and salsa along with your margaritas on Cinco de Mayo? Try this simple pico de gallo recipe. It takes no skill and tastes much better than the stuff you can buy in the store. I like it spicy, so I left the seeds in the jalapeños. Remove the seeds for less heat. I also like it a little crunchy, so I included bell peppers. Mix it with some avocado, and you have a … Read more

Tequila Tangerine Dream

This cocktail combines the delicate flavors of tangerine and lavender with the kick of tequila. The unique and slightly salty flavor of tequila really comes through. With Cinco de Mayo coming up, you may even consider this as a light and slower-drinkin’ addition to your party menu. You can substitute rum for a slightly sweeter taste any time of year.

Ingredients:
1 tangerine (½ for juice and ½ for tangerine slices)
2 sprigs fresh lavender… Read more

Watermelon Granita

This Week’s Drink is brought to us by guest blogger Caitlin D. (@catincal).

I’m the kind of girl who giggles for no reason, loves twirly dresses and is the first to grab a karaoke microphone. Oh, and I love cocktails.

I’m a huge fan of outdoor dinner parties in the summer and love matching a festive, seasonal drink to a traditional BBQ menu. One of my favorite bartenders, Esteban Ordonez, created the following recipe with … Read more

4th of July Watermelon Cocktail

post icon

 

No 4th of July barbecue is complete without watermelon. I’d like to amend that statement to include watermelon cocktails!

This refreshing summer cocktail is the perfect accompaniment to whatever you’ll be throwing on the grill this Independence Day. Martha Stewart inspired this recipe, which I adapted from her watermelon and basil margaritas.

The watermelon is cool and refreshing, while the mint and basil balance the sweetness and give it a fresh, crisp herbal note. You … Read more
