Apple Cider Whiskey Sour

Apple Cider Whiskey Sour
Last month I was visiting Atlanta for a wedding. The day after the wedding I went to check out a restaurant called King and Duke, based off a friend’s recommendation. In true Southern style, I ordered all the sides and a whiskey cocktail. I was very impressed with the collard greens and the roasted carrots on goat cheese, but the absolute stand out...

Frozen Strawberry Basil Mezcal Margaritas

Frozen Strawberry Basil Mezcal Margaritas
My garden is starting to pop off and leading the charge is basil. I over-plant basil because I feel like one cannot have too much basil.

The weather is finally cooling off enough in the evenings that the temperature is perfect for late night conversations outside in the yard, patio or garden. The watermelons from my garden are finally ready to harvest which means watermelon everything....

Jasmine Iced Tea & White Plum Iced Tea
