Kru 82 Peach Mango Vodka

by TK September 2nd, 2014| Spirits
Every once in awhile you have to shake things up.  Try new things or use different techniques.  It is the only thing that keeps life interesting.  Without the variety that comes with experimenting you really are just living in a black-and-white movie that you have seen one hundred times.

Fresh Blueberry Cocktail

by Michele August 1st, 2014| Cocktails, Mixed Drinks
It is blueberry picking season in New Hampshire!  Living just down the street from a blueberry farm means that we go blueberry picking at least twice each summer.  Our first excursion was two weeks ago, when the season was early.  Although the picking was decent, it would've taken a

Blueberry Pie Martini

by Michele July 18th, 2014| Cocktails, Martinis
Shall I continue with my regular mantra about how I don't like heavy, creamy drinks nor overly sweet drinks?  My best friends like to harass me about it, it makes my husband smirk, but it is true.  So, you may be looking at the title of this cocktail and

Spud Ginger Lemongrass Flavored Vodka: A Review

by TK July 8th, 2014| Spirits
I love Thai food.  I needed to get that out there as soon as I could in this liquor review.  Coconut milk, lemongrass, and ginger chicken is a dish that gets my mouth watering.  I think of the flavors circling my mouth, dancing with my taste buds, and gleefully

Aperol Cocktail: Sunshine and Summer on the Rocks

by Michele July 4th, 2014| Cocktails, Mixed Drinks
Last week I started this series of articles with a simple, sparkling cocktail, the Aperol Spritz.  This week's recipe is just as simple and refreshing.  Paired with vodka, it packs more of a punch than last week's recipe, but it still is fairly tame.  Using vodka as the spirit,

Bubbly Berry Lemonade

by Michele June 20th, 2014| Cocktails, Mixed Drinks
During the workday, my beverages tend to consist of coffee and water.  In winter a cup or two of tea may be added to make the afternoon feel warmer.  In the summer I add seltzer to the mix.  We have a water machine that has a seltzer option, so

Deep Eddy Ruby Red Grapefruit Vodka

by TK June 17th, 2014| Spirits
In my dream world, I wake in the morning, stroll on the beach, hear the waves mesmerize me, and I return to my ocean front condo for a breakfast.   That breakfast has already been laid out by my butler.  A Thomas's English muffin that is toasted and buttered, black

Patriotic Cocktail #2

by Michele June 13th, 2014| Cocktails, Mixed Drinks
So, if Patriotic Cocktail #1 was red (kind of), then Patriotic Cocktail #2 must be. . . blue!  And living a five-minute walk from a blueberry farm, it is quite obvious what would be the main ingredient in this cocktail.  Of course, blueberries aren't in season here right now,

Svedka Mango Pineapple Vodka

by TK June 10th, 2014| Spirits
When life is particularly challenging, I dream of moving to a place where I walk to the beach and spend my day snorkeling and surfing.  My diet in this fantasy land consists of steamed crab, the occasional fresh grilled fish, and a never ending string of pina coladas.  Sadly,

UV Sriracha Vodka

by TK June 3rd, 2014| Spirits
The entire world has fallen in love with  sriracha pepper sauce.  Historically, sriracha pepper sauce is made of chili peppers, salt, sugar, and vinegar and heavily used in the cuisine of southeast Asia. But over the last 10 years, it has invaded the American palate and makes its way

Maple Cream Dream

by Michele May 30th, 2014| Cocktails, Mixed Drinks
We're all familiar with the White Russian, aren't we?  In my early 20s, both the White Russian and Sombrero were go-to drinks.  I know my early 20s were full of clichés.  However, at that point in time I found them to be tasty.  Since then my palate has changed

Pinnacle Cinnabon Vodka

by Editorial Team May 6th, 2014| Spirits
You might be wondering how I came to be in possession of a vodka that is cinnamon roll flavored.  It's quite simple really.  We were going to hold a multi-aged egg hunt at our house on Easter. I decided that each adult should have one egg with a nip
