Too Old For Foo-Foo? {Recipe: Lemon Grass Strawberry Daiquiri}

I always feel a bit self conscious drinking Strawberry Daiquiris. Do you? I don’t really know why I feel that way, but I do. Perhaps it’s because my very first ever alcoholic drink was a Strawberry Daiquiri. I’ve always felt like it was the “safe” “foo-foo” drink… and at my old age I thought if […]

Not As Planned {Recipe: Homemade Creamy Limoncello}

For us, Easter Sunday did not go as planned. Eager to start the morning off on the right foot, the family woke up early and headed up to church for 7:30am Mass. Ready to participate in and enjoy the early morning Easter service, we settled into our pew and began the day. Half way through […]

Happy Hour {Recipe: Whipped Root Beer Float Cocktails}

Fresh out of school and at my first job, happy hour was a regular occurrence. My colleagues and I would leave the stressful day at the office behind and head to the local posh restaurant or bar to unwind and put on our social hats. If we were lucky, our boss and owner of the […]
