Great Dane (An Aquavit Salty Dog) Cocktail

Great Dane (An Aquavit Salty Dog) Cocktail

What a fun cocktail for camping! We love the use of Vanilla Bean Sea Salt to amp up the flavor with zero added effort. From one of our most popular summer cookbooks, author Emily Vikre has won us over with this one.

Summer Margaritas with Royal Rose Simple Syrup

Summer Margaritas with Royal Rose Simple Syrup

A friend made these margaritas at a recent girls night and they were the perfect kick off to a night of cooking and carbs. Her recipe is below and the great news is, you can't go wrong with this list of ingredients. The Royal Rose syrups balance with the sharp citrus and soften the tequila. Give them a try! They won't disappoint.

Floral Infused Vodka with Runamok Bitters

Floral Infused Vodka with Runamok Bitters

'Tis the season for colorful drinks! I'm a big fan of infused alcohol all year round, but in the winter I find myself reaching for cinnamon sticks, star anise and allspice over and over again. This drink features those plus another of my pantry staples: hibiscus.

Spiced Whiskey and Cider

Spiced Whiskey and Cider

This started out as an experiment. We had sweet cider in the fridge, an unopened bottle of Makers Mark in the bar and a Mulling Kit in the pantry. The cocktail pretty much made its self.

Masala Chai Dalgona Whipped Coffee

Masala Chai Dalgona Whipped Coffee

This is one of our favorite ways to use SKORDO Masala Chai Spice Blend. The cardamom, clove and pepper really shine through in contract with the instant coffee. Dalgona coffee was a summer star we’re planning on enjoying well into fall!

It's 85 degrees outside. It's Friday. Has there ever been a better time for a boozy, fruity, frozen drink? This one is for all the folks looking for a tropical vacation without the plane ride. Highly recommend!

Mother's Day Coffee (Two Ways)

Mother's Day Coffee (Two Ways)

My mom loves coffee. We call it her go go juice. Most morning's she's up around 5am, cup in hand planning her day. These recipes are inspired by her rugosa roses and garden fresh lavender.

Blueberry Fizz

Blueberry Fizz

Blueberry and lemon is a classic ingredient pairing we usually associate with baking, but spring has us craving familiar flavors without the heft of muffins, breads and scones. Our solution, the Blueberry Fizz. It's a fruity, naturally sweet beverage pretty enough for garden parties and tasty enough to feel like a treat. Pair it with white rum or vodka for an impressive at home cocktail.

Hibiscus Tea

Hibiscus Tea

Hibiscus Tea reminds me of walks in the Caribbean, stopping to sample roadside BBQ and being handed a syrupy, vivid 'house tea'. Now, years later making it in Maine as the days get longer and the sun starts to have warmth again is the ultimate nostalgic treat.

This recipe is simple and the end result is versatile. On its own the tea is bold, it brightens up any cocktail (especially good with Gin and Tonics!) and mixed with seltzer and a splash of Lemon White Balsamic Vinegar, it's the perfect base for a shrub. Cheers!

Turmeric & Orange Lemonade

Turmeric & Orange Lemonade

This simple combination is a great way to easily get the healing benefits of Turmeric, and it's also a delicious drink in it's own right.
