Coconut Rose Smoothie

December 3, 2014


While the cold temperature hardly lends itself to “smoothie” weather, sometimes I just want to mix it up.  When I saw a recipe containing coconut, strawberry and ROSE I knew I needed to put on some gloves and suck it up (no pun intended).


Coconut Rose Smoothie

  • 1 cup frozen strawberries
  • 1 large frozen banana
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk (organic, full fat)
  • 1/2 cup coconut water
  • 1/4 teaspoon rose water
  • 1-2 handfuls of ice
  • 1 date (chopped)
  1. Add ingredients into a blender and mix until combined.
  2. Garnish with raw shredded coconut and enjoy!

April 25, 2014


I was looking for something light, refreshing and festive for Easter brunch… here was our specialty cocktail for the day…


Cucumber Grapefruit Spritzer

  • 12 oz gin (I recommend Hendrick’s)
  • 2 Persian cucumbers
  • Grapefruit soda (3 cans/bottles)
  1. Slice cucumbers (no need to peel) and muddle in a glass.
  2. Top with gin and let sit overnight (or up to 3 days).
  3. When ready to serve, fill a low-ball glass with ice, 1 1/2 oz of infused gin and top with grapefruit soda.
  4. Garnish with a cucumber slice and drink up!

Rosewater Rickey

October 4, 2013

Gin Rose Lime Cucumber CocktailI recently bought some rosewater and have been trying to figure out creative ways to use it – enter… the Rosewater Rickey.

Gin Drink

Rosewater Rickey

  • 3 oz Hendricks Gin
  • 1/2 oz lime juice
  • Splash of simple syrup
  • Splash of rosewater
  • Club Soda

Shake gin, lime juice, simple syrup and rosewater in an ice filled shaker.  Strain into an ice filled glass and top with club soda. Stir and enjoy!

Rose Gin Cocktail

* I garnished these drinks with mint ice cubes.  To make them I filled large square ice cube molds 1/3 of the way and freeze.  Place a mint leaf on top and fill tray to 2/3 full.  Freeze again and then fill to the top (this will keep the mint leaf fulling submerged).
