Here's a little something juicy, that'll make your Monday extra groovy! I'm sharing with you my coveted life elixir; something that I swear will extend your life, AND it plays nice with clear liquors! I do hope you'll give it a whirl and make yourself a heaping batch, it's rather quite simple and comes together in a snap! Should you so choose, use some agave and sweeten to taste; I like mine rather tart and usually tequila laced. Check out the below how-to vid; I guarantee you'll be utterly delighted that you did!!

COTM: BLOODY BRUNCH IN A CUP

07.03.15


One of my guiltiest pleasures happens to be drinking my meals - hey, don't judge, I just like the way it makes me feels!! That said, I must admit - my Brunch in a Cup is a most fabulous fit! What's not to love about veggies, shrimp + fancy pickled things - swimming in vodka, v8 and every sauce in between?! I truly cannot possibly think of a better way - to fuel and sauce up for the day! So the next time you find yourself in  need of a little 'pick-me-up' - you really ought to try my Brunch in a Cup!

Forgive my absence yesterday, for here's the full disclosure - I was keeping company with none other than Mrs. Hangover!!

Happy Friday, all!!

Mrs. Grasshopper Cocktail

03.16.15


For some it's liquid libations + for others it's a cultural celebration. Whatever the purpose may be today, I say cheers to you in my MRS. way! If you're down for the cause + in for the count, grab your fancy glasses and prepare for the tongue-tickling dismount. BEHOLD a recipe from my book #2, it's the Mrs. Grasshopper Cocktail - go on and indulge like we good gals do....

Here's a real crowd pleaser - a frozen cocktail to whip up at your leisure! Straight from my Mrs. Lilien's Dessert Cocktail Swatchbook - and upon first sip, this frosty treat will have you on the hook! It's utterly ideal for a St. Patty's day libation - and by far a crowning choco-mint-tail innovation. It's not all that fussy, and rather easy to make - and thanks to the VODKA, it becomes an intoxicating drank!! So, go on and bust out that blender - tomorrow's St. Patty's day, and deserving of a boozy bender!

A Chardonnay A Day

08.14.14


LaCrema_Chardonnay_final.jpg

Just like that key piece in your closet that goest with e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g, a fabulous bottle of wine can be just as eminent. A go-to bottle should be able to compliment your most basic of pedestrian nibbles and be the cherry on top of something delicious + elegant. Whether serving bites that are salty + savory, sweet or tart - a balanced + veracious bottle of Chardonnay can take mundane fare to the top of the chart. Looking for said stalwart bottle of Chard?! In waltzes La Crema… see that wasn’t so hard! They’ve launched a fabulous new program in which they’ve coined the ‘Virtual Vintner’ - an online wine experience that formulates a new vino variety based off crowd-sourced input + popular vote and thus create + deliver! This new virtual wine making concept taps the minds of their registered online community - they’ll create a new custom wine based off the popular findings, making it a rather unique + exciting opportunity!  Just think of all the fun you could have with a crowd pleasing, custom wine to pair with brunch, lunch and dinner?! And knowing you played a part in the creation would most definitely make you feel like a winner! I know I wouldn’t mind having a fabulous Chardonnay a day - it would certainly turn my monday through friday into a week long soirée!
