Caramel Apple Cider

Nothing says fall like apple cider. I love curling up with a book in my favorite chair with a hot, steamy mug apple cider spiked with homemade caramel and cinnamon. It also makes a great warm drink for holiday parties. Caramel Apple Cider 1 cup apple cider 1 teaspoon caramel sauce 1 cinnamon stick Warm … Continue reading »

White Wine Sangria

Sangria is one of my favorite things to make in the summer. You can make up a big pitcher and it’s just a party in a glass. For some reason, it transports me to the beach or a picnic or a cookout– maybe it’s the fun colors. You can make infinite varieties and I love … Continue reading »

Brandied “Maraschino” Cherries

From time to time, we have Manhattans while hanging around the apartment. We never buy Maraschino cherries though, so they’re never quite right to me. This past Christmas, I was thinking about what I could make and give away. I usually do something chocolate or even cookies, but this year I wanted to do something … Continue reading »

Spring means Iced Tea

While I’m not big into fixing cocktails, a delicious pitcher of iced tea on a warm spring day is a favorite. There’s not much of a recipe for this one, I just brew a couple tea bags (I used mint tea) and squeeze 2 lemons and 2 limes into it. I sweeten it with a … Continue reading »
