Red Wine Spritzer

This post has been sponsored by Schweppes®. All thoughts and opinions are my own.So, I have a confession to make. It’s taken me much, much longer than it should have for me to jump on the wine wagon. But now that I’m on board – I’m all in. From Sangrias to a straight up delicious glass of Cabernet Sauvignon I don’t tend to be too picky. And with the cooler weather moving in to stay my current favorite is a riff on a summer staple, a wine spritzer. It’s only fitting though that I swapped out white wine for red wine and added season appropriate flavors like blackberries and cranberries. Schweppe’s® Black Cherry Sparkling Water  is the perfect thing to top of the spritzer with, and the taste just adds to the flavor profile. It’s a win, win. Best part about this recipe? Easily one of the quickest cocktails I’ve shared on the site, and more often than not most ingredients will already be in your house. Except for possibly the fresh fruit and/or the Schweppes Sparkling Water. BUT lucky for you and I, Schweppes Sparkling Water is now available at your local Walmart. Meaning it’s easier than ever to…

Endless Summer

Disclosure: This sponsored post is brought to you by Finlandia, the vodka of choice in my house, but as always, all thoughts and opinions are my own. Must be 21 or older to consume alcohol and remember to please drink responsibly. If you follow me on Instagram then you have more than likely seen me post about Silver Dollar at least a dozen times. What can I say I love the place. The staff is incredible, and it feels like home – in the best way possible. And their food? It’s the best kind of comfort food there is. The true star though? Their cocktail menu, and that is actually what inspired today’s cocktail post. See they rotate their cocktail menu seasonally, and while the majority of them change from year to year – the crowd favorites stick around. Today I’m sharing my riff on one of those favorites. The perfect crisp and refreshing cocktail for the remaining days of summer, aptly dubbed Endless Summer. This guy has been on constant repeat at my house lately – especially for those long days spent by the pool. It’s a refreshing lavender vodka cocktail that I simply cannot get enough of. To…

Tan Fresco Tan Verde, Patron Cocktail Recipe

Patron The Summer

Howdy all! Is it just me or is Summer seriously flying by? It feels just like yesterday that I was in Nashville, and here we are halfway through July. I guess it’s true what they say, time does fly when you’re having fun. Anyways, if y’all remember (and follow along on Instagram) I was in Nashville with Patrón to kick off their #PatronTheSummer tour last month. And today I’m sharing a delicious spicy tequila cocktail created by a Nashville legend perfect for celebrating those dog days of Summer. Because there’s no better way to cool off than with an ice-cold cocktail or two. Which is why I’m excited to have partnered with Patrón for today’s post. So without further adieu, let’s dive head first into a new favorite riff on a classic.  The Tan Fresco Tan Verde brings the heat while also managing to be perfectly refreshing. Meaning it’s the perfect drink for just about every occasion. Hence why it’s been on repeat at my house over the last few weeks, especially for those days spent by the pool. Now for the coolest part of this whole story! Over the last year 3 years Patrón has gathered flavor trends from millions…
