‘Just Because Day’ with Chambord

Did you know that today, August 27th, is “Just Because Day”? It is a day to embrace the little pleasures in life, for no reason at all. Eat dessert before dinner; sing loudly into a hairbrush to Queen; binge watch Outlander while eating a pint of ice cream. Personally, this sounds awfully like everyday to me, but hey I’ll take this opportunity to celebrate regardless. One of the best ways to observe the holiday is with a decadent cocktail. Lucky for us, my friends at Chambord have sent me some fun cocktails to share with you. There’s no better day …

Red Velvet Hot Chocolate

Red Velvet Hot Chocolate

If there is one thing I love on a cold winter’s day, it’s a cup of hot cocoa. Add to that another one of my loves, red velvet cake, and you have one heck of a drink recipe.

Sacré Sauvage Cocktail

Summer has officially begun, so you know what that means: surf, sand, BBQ, and if you’re anything like me… cocktails! Seriously, what’s better than relaxing poolside with a icy, albeit boozy, drink in your hand?! Nothing. Yeah, I know! So let’s kick off tanning season with a killer cocktail recipe.  Part of my super hard job is to taste test some of the world’s best libations and mix up drink recipes. I know, I lead a very difficult life. But, one of the perks of this job is that I get to report my findings back to my lovely readers. That’s …

Pink Flamingo Cocktail-13855

Pink Flamingo Cocktail

Most cocktails at a party are like broken records. You keep seeing the same classics over and over again – Coke & Rum, Mimosa, Manhattan. It’s time to change things up. How about adding a fun (and a bit cheeky) signature drink to your next event? Take for instance, this fabulously retro Flamingo themed backyard party. Colorfully kitschy, this shindig calls for an equally tongue-in-cheek libation. So, try out our inspired Pink Flamingo cocktail and take a gander at this addictively fun affair.
