Tequila Sunrise

How to Make a Tequila Sunrise Cocktail

I love making Tequila Sunrises when I’m entertaining for brunch. While champagne cocktails and bellinis have a festive carbonation to them, I like the colors and the simplicity of these a bit better. Plus, I feel obligated to use up the whole bottle of champagne when I’m making cocktails with it because I don’t want it to lose its carbonation. That means that when I’m ... Read More »

Irish Cream Egg Cream

Irish Cream Egg Cream

The other day, I showed you how to make classic Chocolate Egg Cream at home. These soda fountain treats were all the rage back when the counter at the local pharmacy was the hottest spot in town to hang out – and they still have plenty of fans today.

I don’t mind artificial cherry flavor in a lollipop, but I don’t want ... Read More »

While I enjoy coconut mocha frappuccinos, I also enjoy hot coconut mochas. Fortunately, they’re easy to make at home, so ... Read More »

Pumpkin Spice Milk Punch

Pumpkin Spice Milk Punch

Milk punch is an old fashioned cocktail that originated sometime in the 17th century. Fans of eggnog will note that it is similar to the classic holiday drink, but it doesn’t include any eggs. It uses brandy (or bourbon or rum), a bit of sugar and milk to make a cocktail that is rich and creamy without being too heavy. Since it is such a ... Read More »

Pumpkin spice lattes are so popular during the fall – whether you are drinking them at Starbucks or one of the many other coffee shops that offers a similar flavor – that, for many, their appearance on menu boards is what officially kicks off the season. As a pumpkin pie fan, I do enjoy the drinks and, this year, I made my own Pumpkin Spice ... Read More »
