It was such a lovely lovely time. Thank you all for coming! So many cupcakes…. Who knew lemon curd was so popular! It was an after thought even. Loved my decorations.

White Russians and Spiked Vanilla Lattes

Splurges. That is what this is about. We have gone over all the basic alcohols already. We talked about vodka, rum, tequila, gin, whiskey, and bourbon. Now I want to talk about two extras to keep in your cabinet on a regular basis- coffee liquor and vanilla vodka. Confession- when we first started making these …

Two. Two wonderful, chaotic, lovely years. Technically the blog turned two yesterday but I wanted to share whiskey with you. You get it. So many things have changed in two years. Gone from mama of a 8 month old to mama of a two and a half year old. Gone from stay at home mama, …

Ahhhh whiskey. My first exposure to whiskey was a shot I took one night in a bar in Barcelona. I remember thinking “huh… that wasn’t so bad.” My next encounter with whiskey was also a shot. I was traveling for work and, as I often did, I was having dinner alone at the bar of …

When I wrote the initial post about how to stock your liquor cabinet I lumped whiskey and bourbon together. While I don’t think it is imperative that you have both I highly encourage it. Because more liquor is just that- more liquor. And that is rarely a bad thing. Unless it is. Then please don’t. …

Ok so I already told you the first bottle of alcohol I bought was a peppermint schnapps to add to my hot cocoa. While I cannot say this with 100% certainty I am pretty confident the second bottle I bought was tequila. Many a night in college was spent at the late night half off …

Lets talk rum. For the sake of this post today we are just going to be chatting about light rum. It is really all I have on hand at the moment too. I reserve dark rum mainly for cooking (remember the peaches foster?) or for sipping. The difference between light and dark rum is that …
