This cocktail is a holiday drink recipe we actually created last fall. There are a few reasons why we love this champagne cocktail: 1) It is super simple to make, which means it takes minimal prep time. 2) The drink feels fancy even though it is just a two-ingredient cocktail. 3) It is festive for fall and an awesome Thanksgiving cocktail recipe to share with friends and family.Read More
Here is what's cookin' these days...
We are really diggin’ Hat Creek Provisions pickles these days! What sets them apart from other pickles, is they don’t use vinegar to preserve the cukes, they ferment them. This means the pickles are crisp, flavorful, and the brine is full of probiotics and electrolytes. This got us thinking, since electrolytes help with hangovers, why not make a “hair of the dog” martini?Read More
We’re having too much fun making homemade craft cocktails with Owl Brew tea-infused mixers. Karen is always looking for a tasty way to make cocktails that are packed with flavor, yet low calorie, Owl’s Brew makes it really easy because one ounce of the mixture is only 40 calories.Read More
Our friend Sophie introduced us to a new cocktail mixer called Owls Brew and we are hooked! Owls Brew is a low calorie mixer comprised of flavorful tea, agave, and water. That's it! You can simply mix the Owls Brew with the liquor of your choice, but we wanted to take our favorite cocktails and give them a low-cal flavor upgrade.
This is our twist on the mojito. We used the Wicked Green Owls Brew because it comes with a habanero kick, so we’ll call this one a Mo-heat-o. J A traditional mojito is made by muddling sugar with lime juice and mint leaves. We substituted the sugar for the slightly sweet Owls Brew, but it you want a sweeter cocktail go ahead and mix some sugar back in.
- 2 oz Wicked Green Owl’s Brew
- 1.5 oz white rum
- 12 sprigs of mint
- Juice of one lime
- 1 tsp sugar (optional)
Use a muddler to smash together the lime juice, mint leaves, and sugar if you'd like. Add the rum and Owls Brew, cover with another glass and shake until cold and well mixed. Garnish with mint leaves and a lime wedge.
