Bottles to Pop on New Year’s Eve

New Year’s Eve is upon us! And I personally cannot think of anything more appropriate to bid farewell to 2018 than with a few glasses of booze. Seriously, was it just me or was this year a dumpster-fire of political and cultural rubbish?! So, join me as I look back on the past year and review some of the more favorable moments… I mean, bottles… that we experienced here at The Frosted Petticoat. Here’s our review of the bottles to pop on New Years Eve. Piper-Heidsieck One of my all-time favorite bottles, Piper-Heidsieck Brut is so good that it is …

Brandy Cocktail Twist: The Spiced Mustard Sidecar

Special thanks to Colman’s Mustard for partnering up with me on this delicious post! The year is about to come to a close, so I ask you this:have you done anything crazy yet? If you’ve been following along with my website throughout 2018, then you know I’ve been challenging myself to make some pretty insane recipes. Goat cheese cocktails! Banana Salmon Egg Rolls! Elderflower liqueur marshmallows! It’s been quite a wild (and delicious!) ride. Well, I have one last weird but awesome recipe to close out the year… The Spiced Mustard Sidecar. It’s a twist on the classic brandy-based cocktail, …

Spicy Artichoke Mango Michelada, Cocktail, Beer

Spicy Artichoke Mango Michelada

Thank you, Reese Specialty Foods, for sponsoring this post! The opinions and text are my own. With the advent of summer comes the inevitable fruity drink. Sure, watermelon and pineapple can be refreshing on a hot summer’s day, but why are we ignoring the savory libations? Savory drinks are the underdog of the cocktail world. They’re even more elusive during the summertime. Add to that the mysterious beer cocktail and you have a trifecta of warm-weather hurdles to cross. Not one to shirk away from a challenge, I’ve decided to tackle this summertime savory cocktail head-on. With an arsenal of …

Beat the Heat with Dunkin’ Donuts Cold Brew

This post was sponsored by The J.M. Smucker Company, all opinions are my own. As warmer weather rolls in, there are a few items that you probably want to retire. The chunky knit sweater should be nowhere in sight. That amazing potato soup recipe you perfected over the holiday season? Put it away! Oh, and you know that weather app you’ve been glued to this winter? Shut it down, because thanks to the summer season I can already give you the forecast for the next 4 months: It’s going to be hot with a side of sticky. But if you …

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 …

The Whisky Foundation Reserve: Stock Market for Whisky

One of the many perks of being a food and drinks writer is that I get exclusive product information before the public. This perk clearly feeds my narcissism. Whenever I receive information that lauds innovation and impeccable quality, I will try to pass it along as soon as possible. Since I was happily lost in a Thanksgiving food black hole the last few days, this press release comes a little bit late. But it must be shared none-the-less. Why? Because there now exists a whisky stock market, my friends. The Whisky Foundation Reserve. In my opinion, this is the only …
