It's cocktail time. With Valentine's Day just a week away, I thought I'd whip up another love-inspired cocktail. I figured that my Sweetie Martini from last year needed some company. Lately, my brain has been overflowing with ideas. Recipes I want to try, mini-(and not so mini-) projects that I want to tackle around the house, and things I want to create.
These 130 calorie chocolate muffins taste like dessert. Lightly flavored with pumpkin, spices, and maple! We're back from one incredible honeymoon on Maui and Kauai. Of all the sights we saw, delicious food we ate (including tuna ceviche with coconut milk and macadamia nut crusted mahi mahi- omg) and drinks we tasted, I have to say that the sunrise at Haleakala Summit was absolutely my favorite part.
Made with real pumpkin puree, not pumpkin flavoring. This ain't my first rodeo. I've been making this pumpkin creamer for about 2 months now and I CAN'T STOP with it. I held off sharing it on my blog until it was more seasonably appropriate. For the record, I consider myself seasonally challenged.

TGIF, people. TGIF. I hope you've had a spectacular week. It's been a busy one here on IBC so I'm happy Friday is here. And since it is Friday, let's talk about today's cocktail for a minute. First, if you can believe it, until about two weeks ago I'd never had gin.
Homemade Pumpkin Liqueur - The View from Great Island
Ever since I made my own Irish Cream I've been itching to try my hand at other homemade liqueurs. This Pumpkin Liqueur tuned out equally fantastic. The lightly spiced, creamy pumpkin is slightly sweet, but because I chose dark rum for the base, it has a good strong kick to it as well.
Okay. Okay. I know I've been gushing about my recent cruise, but it was so magical and memorable, that I just can't stop talking about. If you've never been on a cruise, it's definitely something I hope you will get to experience at some point in your life.
Cinco de Mayo is next week so I thought a little celebration was in order. A long time ago I shared my recipe for a c lassic cosmopolitan. As much as I enjoy trying new things with unique ingredients, sometimes the classics are just as good, if not better.

I don't know about you, but I'm always looking for creative cocktail ideas. While the standards are amazing and often my go-tos, I do like to mix things up a bit. If I see something new and different on the menu when I'm traveling, I'll likely give it a try.
Cheers to another weekend! Earlier in the week my mom and I went to the movies. When we walked out of the theater around 9:15 p.m., it was still light out. All I could think was, "Woooah." This, my friends, is why I'm crazy about summer.
If I didn't need to work in order to pay my bills, I would probably sit on my porch all summer long eating or drinking something delicious, listening to music, and watching the traffic on my street. In my opinion, it doesn't get much better or more simple than that.
I love summer vacations. Some of my greatest memories are from trips taken during the summer. Road trips to visit national parks when I was a kid, lazy days spent at my family's cabin, and more recent trips of cruises in the Mediterranean and fancy beach houses on the East Coast.
Have you ever had one of those weeks where you're weren't sure you were going to make it through? Where a random vein in your arm is twitching for no reason and interacting with other human beings is just not a good idea. Do you know what I mean?
The tables have turned. I'm no longer going to settle for a shot of booze in my banana bread or a heavy handed splash in a key lime tart. I'm a fan of liquoring up my desserts, but I think I'm going to do things different from now on.
So this is a bit of a hefty post partially because I have a lot of links and a sub-recipe here, but also because this spring strawberry sangria was taken on the first real spring day when the sun was out and my windows were open. I just couldn't stop clicking away.
Margaritas and white wine sangria collide into one perfect summertime cocktail, just in time for the weekend and cinco de mayo! I can't stop (I won't stop) with the Mexican fare. First tres leches cake, then salsa. But I've saved the best for last, margaritas!
