Red Rover

February 15, 2013

When I made that Blood Orange Salad a couple weeks ago, I was blown away that blood oranges could be bought pretty much anywhere this time of the year… and since that moment I’ve been eating them as much as possible – and drinking them is no exception!


Here is a fun seasonal cocktail that I’m sure you’ll enjoy!

Red Rover

  • 2 oz bourbon
  • 1 1/2 oz blood orange juice
  • 1/2 lemon juice
  • 1 oz. simple syrup
  • 4 oz ginger ale
  • Garnish with fresh ginger

1. Add bourbon, juices and syrup into a cocktail shaker – shake gently with ice

2. Add ginger ale and stir to combine

3. Pour into a ice filled glass and garnish with fresh ginger

4. Enjoy!






Mai Tai-pe of Drink

February 8, 2013

I am finding great pleasure in making up titles that are as corny as possible.  Anyway… with Hawaii on the brain, what better way to get into an Aloha mindset than a Mai Tai!? 

But not just any Mai Tai – a copycat version of Li Po’s Chinese Mai Tai in San Francisco (as seen on Anthony Bourdain’s No Reservations). 


Here it goes…

Whaler’s Dark Rum

Castillo Light Rum

Bacardi 151 Rum

Chinese Liqueur (Rose flavored)

Pineapple Juice

Mix to taste and drink up – consume with caution 🙂
