Blood Orange Whiskey Sours

It’s Easter weekend and I’ve come bearing a zingy, vibrant cocktail that will kiss you gently on the forehead and ease (mildly sedate?) you through your next few days of screaming, chocolate-filled children/probably some adults, and potentially disastrous political “discussions”. It’s what the holidays are all about, right? 🙄 We freaking love a good sour in our house […]

Tepache with Vanilla Bean and Ginger + Tepache Margarita

I have to preface this post with – I am neither scientest nor doctor. I use my kitchen as a science lab and have yet to die or blow anything up, so I think things are going well, but if you’re not comfortable fermenting at home please feel free to reach out to a professional […]

Spicy Kale Ginger Lemonade

There is something ominous lurking around. A dirty, nasty cold/flu that seems to be knocking my friends and family out one by one. I woke yesterday with a sandpaper throat and what felt like two corks in my sinus’. Immediately I started trying to knock it out before it did me in. Water (a lot of water), […]
