Drinks and Links: Blackberry Gin Lemonade

TGIF, people. TGIF. I hope you’ve had a spectacular week. It’s been a busy one here on IBC so I’m happy Friday is here. And since it is Friday, let’s talk about today’s cocktail for a minute. First, if you can believe it, until about two weeks ago I’d never had gin. Never. It turns […]

Caramel Apple Pie Martini

A couple weeks ago I wrote an article about hosting a fall cocktail party. To be honest, other than pumpkin beer (which I can’t get enough of), I find it hard to create cocktails for the fall. So I challenged myself to come up with a few unique recipes. After testing out several recipes, I […]

Caramel Apple Martini

I realize that I’m focusing on fall a little early, but I hope you’ll forgive me. It’s my favorite time of year, and it seems to go by way too quickly. In the fall, one of the most comforting flavor combinations (other than pumpkin with almost anything) is caramel and apple. As we head into […]

Strawberry Rhubarb Margarita

Ginger & Mint Lime Floats

Of all the herbs, mint may be my favorite and I’m honestly not sure why. While I like the taste, I’m certainly not obsessed with it. However, give me mint chocolate chip ice cream or some other sort of mint and chocolate combination and I’m all over it. I think what I like most about […]

Sweet Heat

About a month ago I went to California for the first time. I’ve actually been meaning to blog about that trip for a while now, but just totally forgot. In fact, last October I went to Portland, Oregon and never blogged about that. I’m a little behind, aren’t I? Maybe we need a travel week […]

Raspberry Beer Cocktail

I don’t know about you, but I am desperate for summer to get here. I’ve literally banned myself from looking at the weather online because it only makes me frustrated. I am hoping that old saying is true: “April showers bring May flowers.” With the coming of May I’m looking forward to all things summer […]
