Aperol Negroni

An Aperol Negroni is a light, refreshing take on a classic negroni that uses Aperol, instead of Campari, to add bright summer flavors and a luscious orange color.

Old Fashioned Cuba Libre

The Old Fashioned Cuba Libre is the result of a tawdry little affair between a classic Cuba Libre and a much younger mid-century Old Fashioned. Like all good affairs, this one has some nice muddling, a little rum, and a touch of Mexican Coke thrown in for good times.

Strawberry Habanero Margarita

The strawberry habanero margarita is a sweet-spicy take on a traditional margarita made with strawberries, habaneros, and agave nectar. This margarita recipe utilizes agave to highlight the fresh, clean flavors of the tequila.

Blood Orange Aperol Collins

The Blood Orange Aperol Collins is a light, refreshing take on a classic Tom Collins cocktail that uses Solerno blood orange liqueur and Aperol to create a unique combination of flavors. This is a great summer cocktail.

Blood Orange Negroni

A Blood Orange Negroni is a unique way to feature blood oranges when they are in season. The bitter sweetness of the fresh squeezed blood orange juice is the perfect accruement to the bitter floral notes in a Negroni.

Negroni

The Negroni is a classic Italian cocktail made with equal portions of gin, Campari, and sweet vermouth.

Rediscovering The Boulevardier Cocktail

The Boulevardier Cocktail is a simple combination of rye whiskey, Campari, and sweet vermouth that creates a delicious cocktail that is well balanced and has an interesting history worth exploring.

The Boulevardier Cocktail

The Boulevardier Cocktail is one of those classic cocktails that everyone should drink on a regular basis. A combination of rye whiskey, Campari, and sweet vermouth or the Boulevardier is what you’d get if a Negroni and a Manhattan had a baby cocktail.

A Perfect Manhattan

The Perfect Manhattan gets its name from the equal amounts of sweet and dry vermouth in it. It’s also no surprise that a drink recipe named after Manhattan would have a variation that calls itself perfect.

Buttermilk Biscuits

This is the winning biscuit recipe from a series of experiments I conducted to create a recipe that replicated my favorite biscuits from a trip to Atlanta. The recipe ingredients are simple, but together they make biscuit magic.

Better Than Sex Cake

Better than Sex Cake is a sinful dessert with questionable intentions that gets to know you with a little devil's food cake, pours on the caramel, and finishes everything off with a little whip cream.

Baked Olives

Elevate a simple dish of olives by baking them for a few minutes before serving them to your guests. Baking the olives gives them a buttery texture and mellow flavor.

Classic American Tacos

This taco recipe is one of my favorite comfort foods. We regularly make up a batch of taco meat and keep it in the fridge for quick lunches and dinners.
