I just returned from a beach vacation with family and feel compelled to tell you about the highlight of my trip: the Corkcicle Vinnebago. I promise you this is not a shameless media plug, you guys—this is the real deal. Prior to my trip, I was sent The Vinnebago, an insulated, stainless steel canteen that claims to keep hot fluids hot and cold fluids cold (yeah, okay, I’ve heard that before). I knew that the true test would be bringing the bottle with me to the Jersey Shore, where me and my family of winos could properly try out out the merchandise in the sweltering heat. Keep reading »
Only a few years ago, I was not yet 21 and couldn’t go to a club. Since I’m the kind of girl who loves to dance and socialize, I couldn’t wait until I was finally old enough to start partying. But when my time came, clubs weren’t how I expected them to be at all: dull scenes, crap music, and straight-up depressing anti-social patrons that flooded the nightclub scene.
After taking a one-year club hiatus, earlier this summer I ventured to a well-known spot in New York City with a couple of friends … only to find shit even worse than when I promised myself to avoid clubs like the damn plague a year before. Now I think I have eight good reasons now to just avoid nightclubs entirely: Keep reading »
Chances are you’ve seen it. In my completely unsubstantiated estimation, it’s been pinned more than any other cocktail in the history of Pinterest: the “Sneaky Beach Cocktail.” And while I appreciate the ingenuity of hiding booze in a Simply Lemonade bottle, I feel that the recipe — pink lemonade, strawberries, watermelon vodka, and coconut rum — leaves something to be desired.
Nothing against those who like their cocktails on the sweet side, but I want to taste my ethanol. Alas, the summer months can be tricky if you love darker spirits and heavier brews. The perfect summer beverage should be refreshing, a little sweet, and cold, but you shouldn’t have to suffer through cloying cocktails filled with flavored vodkas and Crystal Light. You should be able to taste your drink and know it’s for the over-21 crowd, even if it’s served with a tiny umbrella.
Here are my top three favorite beverages to imbibe in when the temperatures soar. I suggest you make it a point to try them all before summer is up! Keep reading »
I’ve said before that I drink alcohol for the variety of tastes, but what I haven’t disclosed yet is that I am obsessed with putting booze into my cakes (also: I am obsessed with cake). Flavor matching is at the heart of mixing cocktails, and translating cocktail flavors into cake is basically the best party trick ever. This is some intermediate-level baking that we’re talking about, but I encourage you to try it because 1) practice makes perfect and 2) armed with this knowledge, you will be able to make the most spectacular cakes of your entire life.
