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

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

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
