Frisky Eats: 11 Ways To Spike Your Lemonade

When life gives you lemons, make alcoholic lemonade, that’s what I say (no wonder I didn’t have one of those roadside lemonade stands as a kid). Anyway, today is National Lemonade Day, which means it’s the perfect time to kick your drink game up a notch. Forget about just adding a simple splash of vodka to your lemonade, and, instead, try one of these 11 delicious and refreshing ways to spike it!

Frisky Eats: 12 Rum Recipes For Summertime Sippin’

Ahh, rum. There’s something about the smooth taste of cold rum that makes you want to sit by the ocean, strum a guitar and let the warm breeze blow. To celebrate National Rum Day on August 16 (today!), you’ll find me at the closest beach bar with a cool concoction in hand and Kenny Chesney playing on my iPod (who, coincidentally loves rum so much he’s even bottled up his own: Blue Chair Bay Rum.) Join the party and create some tasty rum cocktails to get in on the festivities. Click through for 12 yummy recipes to get you started…

My New Favorite Thing: The Corkcicle Vinnebago Wine Canteen

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 »

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 »

Frisky Eats: 10 Tasty Pineapple Cocktails

This weekend, I enjoyed brunch at one of my favorite local Mexican restaurants Tomatillo. I was tempted to order my usual margarita, but decided to try a pineapple crusher instead. If you haven’t had one, I highly recommend it — it’s like a Caribbean vacation in a cup. I slowly sipped this pineapple cocktail with a touch of Creme de Cacao and dreamed of the cliffside pools of St. Thomas. Try one of these pineapple cocktails and transport yourself to your happy place.

Frisky Eats: 20 Tequila Drinks To Help Celebrate National Tequila Day!

Happy National Tequila Day! Tequila cocktails have always been my go-to drink when I’m looking for something refreshing with a kick. In fact, I have a half-full bottle of Sauza Blue sitting on my desk as we speak (no joke), and on top of that, “You and Tequila” by Kenny Chesney is my favorite song of all time. Coincidence? Nope. I’m not alone though, because the US alone has 45 million tequila drinkers, and consumes twice as much tequila as Mexico. So here at The Frisky, we’ve compiled a list of some of kickass tequila cocktails— yes, including tasty margaritas— to help you pay tribute to this very important occasion. Click through the gallery to get your drank on. Cheers!
