GINGERBREAD RUM BALLS

GINGERBREAD RUM BALLS

Tis the season to get a little ballsy.. with rum balls that is! My pumpkin spice and chocolate rum balls have been fan favorites for a while now, so for those of you that have already made them, this recipe will be a breeze!

MONSTER MASH SMOOTHIE

MONSTER MASH SMOOTHIE

Since this month has been mostly dedicated to Halloween-themed cocktails, I thought I would make a delicious kid-friendly smoothie! Using only fresh fruit and ice, I layered up the smoothie and topped the whole thing off with ‘monster eyeballs’ that I showed you how to make last Tuesday! The best part is that you can always make…

HOT APPLE JERRY

HOT APPLE JERRY

I’ve been fantasizing about warm fall drinks since June, so you can imagine how excited I was to finally make this cocktail!

Serve these up to your guests on Thanksgiving or any other occasion to enjoy pumpkin…

LAMB SLIDERS WITH SWEET AND SPICY TOMATO CHUTNEY AND CUCUMBER MINT RAITA

Every time we hit Trader Vic’s for happy hour I order their lamb sliders. I had never really tried lamb before and was actually surprised at how much I liked it! I was inspired to try out my own version of them and they turned out far better than what I expected! The sweet and spicy tomato…

Murderous Mai Tai

Murderous Mai Tai

A few weeks ago we threw a Haunted Luau, which doubled as a housewarming and an early Halloween party. On top of large quantities of food and treats, I made several pitchers of new cocktails to try out with my guests. The first to go was a batch of Murderous Mai Tai’s.. a dangerously delicious…
