Rosé on the Rooftop

Rosé on the Rooftop
Summer may be winding down, but canned wine is here to stay – which means there’s no reason to put the rosé away after Labor Day. With so many cute cans of wine to choose from these days, I had no choice but to sample the gamut before hosting gals’ night on the patio and share my take on the top five. All of these porch pounders would...

Red Pepper Tequila Spritz

Red Pepper Tequila Spritz

Let’s kick off this warm summer weekend with my new favorite patio pounder, the Red Pepper Tequila Spritz. I am obsessed with the subtle red color of this cocktail due to the homemade red bell pepper simple syrup. This recipe is bubbling with garden freshness and a subtle hint of tequila.

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. And since I have 5 tomato plants, I have enough basil to balance out the tomatoes for caprese salads, pestos and avocado toast with basil and sherry vinegar-marinated cherry tomatoes (my new favorite.) But basil in...
