I’m not ready to come to terms with tomorrow being August. I don’t know where the Summer went this year, but I’m choosing to hold onto it for as long as possible. Sure, all the stores are prepping for back to school and even Halloween already, but I’m choosing to cherish these warm summer nights, and I plan to do it on my deck with a glass of this in my hands! This lavender lemonade recipe is the perfect way to enjoy the last month of Summer, before welcoming in the chill of fall and all things pumpkin! The recipe is simple to make and I love the subtle touch of lavender that lingers too! Cheers to homemade lemonade!
One of my VERY favorite movie series of all time, hands down, has to be James Bond. I don’t even think I can narrow it down to a specific favorite movie in the series. I like them all. Although, I did start out as a Pierce Brosnan fan, once Daniel Craig took over, was there really any going back? (Let’s be serious). There’s just something about a handsome guy in a suit, driving a gorgeous sports car, wielding a gun, and kicking some serious ass. Maybe I have a thing for British spies…? Who knows. But, on National Martini Day, it only seems right to highlight and celebrate one of the most famous martinis of all time. The James Bond martini recipe. If Mr. Bond approves of this classy cocktail, I do too.
Looking for an easy way to garnish a cocktail or add a little more punch to some fruit? Today’s post will help you do just that! These boozy rum soaked cherries are simple to make and delicious!

The Super Bowl is just about a week away and I’m already planning my snack and drink menu. Have you guys started yet? If not, you should definitely consider adding this baby to your list! I’m upgrading a traditional root beer float to an adult level, that’s perfect for game day! These caramel whiskey root beer floats are easy to make and delicious too!

I always find that the fall and winter months make getting up harder and have me moving slower in the mornings than usual. I need to be my best when there are so many holiday events, family functions, and work parties, so I try to add a little one, two punch to a yummy morning citrus carrot smoothie recipe that will get me going and keep me feeling great during this time of the year (and all year!)
I know that the infamous Pumpkin Spice Latte (or PSL) tends to be the drink of choice during the Fall, but I’m an iced coffee girl through and through. No matter the season, the weather, or the temperature, you’ll find me sipping on an iced coffee. But with Halloween right around the corner, you KNOW I had to up the iced coffee ante, right? I’m sharing an easy recipe for this “BOO”-zy coconut iced coffee, complete with whipped topping and toasted coconut. These ghost cups are perfect for Halloween, but this tasty coffee cocktail is perfect to serve all year long!
A little over a year ago, I did the un-thinkable. I gave up soda. I didn’t think I could do it, but alas, here I am…living on coffee, un-sweetened iced tea, and water. LOTS of water. And, guys, I’m soooo not a water person. As much as I try to enjoy it, I just don’t. I force myself to drink it because it’s good for me, but I’d really prefer a Dr. Pepper (just being honest!).
If you’re anything like me, and bored with your normal water routine, today’s post was made for you! I’m sharing a few simple fruit pairings that are going to punch up the flavor in your regular old glass of H2O, and they are a breeze to make! Infused fruit water couldn’t be easier and it’s sooooo delish! And that’s coming from a non-water fan too, so that’s gotta mean something 😉
This melon sangria is a light and refreshing twist on the traditional recipe, but just as delicious and refreshing. Perfect for Cinco de Mayo too!
One thing that seems to help make a celebration successful are the drinks. A good cocktail can make all the difference at an event and really get people in the mood to party! With Cinco de Mayo coming up, sangria has been on my brain a lot, but I wanted to put some summer vibes out into the universe to get those warmer temps over to Utah faster. (It’s supposed to SNOW again next week. Ugh!) So, to switch things up a bit, I’m sharing a recipe for melon sangria that’s perfect to serve for your upcoming fiestas and a thirst quenching taste of Summer too!
You only need a few easy to find ingredients to pull this cocktail together and it’s a breeze to make, which is one of the reasons why I love sangria so much! (Well, besides that whole wine part, which is kinda hard to beat).
