Wino! DIY Coaster Made From Wine Corks

Having a husband in the wine industry means we have A LOT of corks lying around. No, it's not from all the wine we drink (I promise), but it is pretty cool. I mean, think of all the project possibilities! Today, we attempted our first cork project, and I will say these coasters came out pretty cute! So if you want to give it a try (I am sure you have some corks lying around after the holidays, right?), here is how we did it. ...more

5 Ways to Avoid Putting on Weight From Alcohol

After I shared the low-down on the 4 "healthiest" things to drink at the bar, a reader (hi, Laura!) posed a fantastic question in response. Though she's already making the relatively low-sugar, low-calorie choices of "liquor + club soda + lime" when she's out, drinking alcohol "feels like the one 'unhealthy' habit left when eating well and exercising. It feels like two steps forward, one step back!" ...more

Easy Starbucks-Inspired Red Cup Lattes You Can Make at Home

It's a very special time of the year. No, I'm not talking about the holidays. I'm talking about Starbucks red cup season! Alas, they are only here for a limited time and it's a busy time of year. It's not always possible for me to pop out to a Starbucks when I get a craving. Luckily, the internet has those moments covered. I was able to find speciality coffee recipes for all of our seasonal favorites. Click, brew, and enjoy! ...more

Special Cocktail for New Year's Eve Parties- Red Hot Punch

It's the most wonderful time of the year! Filled with parties, parties and more parties. Oh and cocktails. Lots of delicious, fancy schmancy cocktails.I love the holidays because no one judges all of the glittery clothes I wear and I can happily test different cocktail brews. And by test, I mean I just that. Beginning at noon, I can start playing with different liquors and mixers, and no one judges me. Who am I kidding? I start drinking at like 10a....more

Coconut Agave Mojitos

I’m not a big drinker. Whenever we go out for happy hour after work, I usually have one beer. If we go out at night, my go-to drink is a vodka cranberry. Well, that’s not true. My first choice of drink would be a mojito. But since we don’t go to high-end bars where they specialize in mixed drinks, most places just don’t have mint leaves to make mojitos. Honestly, I think the last time I was at a bar that could actually make mojitos was when we were in Costa Rica a year and a half ago....more

Coquito ~ Puerto Rican Eggnog

‘Tis the season for eggnog and I’m not talking about just any eggnog, No M’aam! I’m talking about eggnog with a tropical twist, Coquito, or also known as, Puerto Rican Eggnog.I was reminded of this recipe after passing all the eggnog in the milk section at my local store today. I can’t believe I haven’t remembered this version of eggnog, especially after going through my coconut phase.Ok, some might want to call it more of an obsession, but what can I say? I absolutely L-O-V-E the tropical, nutty flavor of this island nut. And obsession is such a strong word {chuckle}.Back to this Puerto Rican eggnog, which is still a thick and creamy drink like the traditional eggnog, yet it has no eggs. That’s right, this is an eggless eggnog. Quite an oxymoron there, wouldn’t ya say? Egg-less Eggnog {smile}....more
