Still buried in snow over here, but the kitchen is warm and smells like heaven thanks to another batch of @stevengrasse's Mulled Cider! Thoroughly enjoying his Colonial Spirits book -- such a great find for lovers of history and lovers of drinks. We garnished with brandied cherries and apple peel, but a clove studded orange slice would be excellent as well.

Sometimes, you just gotta give in to your holiday cravings. If you know me, you know I'm obsessed with @williamssonoma peppermint bark, so this Frozen Peppermint Hot Chocolate featured on @thefeedfeed is basically an excuse to get that crunchy, creamy, minty goodness into drink form. Follow the link in my profile to get the full scoop! #BarkYeah #feedfeed #ad

As promised, I'm mixing up some seriously awesome batch drinks for the holiday season, and this Spiced Fig + Pineapple Punch is one of my favorites for two reasons. (1) My least favorite part of punch-making is juicing endless fruit (ask my poor sister about the acid burns she sustained while helping me juice for a punch -- sorry Kelly!), and this one relies mostly on the canned stuff, because Dole's canned pineapple juice is legit, people. It's the only pre-packaged juice I ever use, aside from apple cider. (2) A good punch can get expensive reeeeal fast (like the ones that call for three different liquors and a champagne top off). The high quality + reasonable price point of Sobieski vodka makes it a no brainer for entertaining, particularly when serving bigger numbers of guests. In summary, win + win = win, so get mixing!

Happy Saturday! Pomegranate season is definitely in full force over here -- may have grabbed a bit too many on my last grocery run. The upside is that they look lovely in my fruit bowl and I've got pomegranate smashes for days!

Starting to work up a reeeal nice holiday feeling over here at GD HQ. Thanksgiving is just around the corner (I know, HOW) and I'm tweaking my very best recipes for the entertaining season. I can't wait to trot this one out for company -- it's got that straight up gorgeous holiday hue, but it's also tartly complex and refreshing (which makes it a better companion to heavy meals than, say, eggnog in my book). And how stinkin' cute are these drink stirrers from @lhcalligraphy?! She is killing the game over there with her holiday line!

Drove across the whole dang country with two handsome men, unpacked the last of the suitcases and assembled the last of the furniture. I feel justified in celebrating with something special, even though it's just a Wednesday. I usually try my best to use ingredients everyone can access pretty easily in their local market, but occasionally I'll include something not-so-easy to get when it's really, truly worth sourcing. If you like shrubs, you absolutely have to get your hands on some @elementshrub Chai Pear. This is NOT a sponsored post -- I'm just addicted to the stuff, and a little bit in love with the adorable, talented, hard working family behind it all. Do your self a favor and get a bottle post haste, then make this!

I call this one the Black Friday, because it's for the day AFTER the holiday. This hangover-smashing cocktail combines beet juice and ginger with activated charcoal—the latest detox trend that claims to help dispel unwanted toxins. Don’t be turned off by the jet-black hue, the charcoal itself is tasteless! Also goes without saying, but the color here makes for one great Halloween cocktail!

It's the golden hour of a golden season, and I'm sipping a simple, magical autumn drink that could definitely be considered liquid gold. If you're looking for something just a little bit decadent, something cool that warms you from the inside out, you're really going to have to try this one.

Grapefruit Hibiscus Toddies because it's getting kind of fall-ish out there and I want to drink warm things.This one is inspired by the classic Blinker cocktail (grapefruit + rye), with an herbal tea twist. I'm digging the subtle spiciness of rye and citrus right now (before the season really changes and I go full-bore baking spice crazy).

Peach + Cardamom is a favorite flavor combo for me, especially as summer heads into fall. Making use of the rest of the syrup I posted last week for a Stone Fruit Soda -- waste not, want not, people.
