Cocktail: Peach & Coconut Mojito

This post is sponsored by Perrier® Carbonated Mineral Water but the content and opinions expressed here are my own. I don’t know about the rest of the country, but here in Texas we are already steamy. With temperatures upward of 90 degrees, I am literally starting to melt and am in dire need of a refreshing drink to cool down.

Irish Spirit Takes ‘Dublin’s Own’ DWD Whiskey Back to the USA

At the ripe young age of 20, I traveled with a group of friends to Dublin. I was studying abroad at Cambridge University and a weekend trip to Ireland was no big deal. I went on a whim and with little idea of what I would find. What I found was unexpected… humor. Dubliners are quite a humorous group of people and their jovial attitudes are infectious. I was a bit taken aback by this constant stream of humor given that the city fully embraces and commemorates their violent history of internal strife, oppression, and economic struggle. At first I …
