Drink of the Week: Live Basil Gimlet

Drinks No Comments by Nicole

The perfect summer cocktail! Nothing like the smell of fresh basil to make you think summer right? Is anyone else as obsessed with Caprese as I am? Yumm. My sweet basil plant that I started growing a little over a month ago is starting to bloom with its wonderfully fragrant leaves. I can’t wait to try this drink once they are full grown!! Cheers!

Drink of the Week: Classic Mai Tai

Drinks No Comments by Nicole

I love a classic cocktail. It’s the test of a great maker of drinks. Anyone can throw fruit together and add some liquor and it still tastes great but if you can nail a classic… you know you got it!! Today we visit the classic Mai Tai for the classic bride and groom. Of course a Mai Tai still has a great tropical flavor to it so it’s nowhere near boring. Plus its one of the great choices that both men and women seem to love!

Drink of the Week: Champagne, Pomegranate and Clementine Cocktail

Drinks No Comments by Nicole

Try and tell me that this cocktail doesn’t sound like drinking summer out of a glass. I dare you. Plus champagne makes everything classy doesn’t it? If that’s not a rule yet, it should be. Says me.

I have included the recipe since translation required. If you smarties can read/ speak Italian please visit Un Dejeuner de Soleil for the original recipe and story.

Here is the English Translation of the recipe:


  • 250 ml (25 cl) of Champagne or good sparkling brut, all chilled
  • 1 ripe pomegranate (to obtain 100 ml of juice)
  • 150 ml (15 cl) of freshly pressed juice of clementines
  • 20 ml limoncello
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 full tablespoons of brown sugar (or sugar syrup, to taste)

Cut the pomegranate in half and juice. You should get about 100 ml. Use some of the seeds for garnish. Mix with the juice of clementines, lemon juice and limoncello. Add the Champagne and sugar, stir. Serve immediately with ice, or store in refrigerator up to half an hour before serving.
