It’s perfect for brunch or happy hour! What’s in a Salty Dog? The Salty Dog cocktail is believed to originate in the 1920’s. It’s similar to a Greyhound cocktail , which is essentially the same ingredients, without the salty rim! Here are the ingredients you need to make a Salty Dog  GinGrapefruit juiceSalt for the rimSimple syrup or maple syrup (optional)Lime wedge (optional)Rim the glass with salt. It doesn’t just look cute! The salt enhances the overall flavor of the drink. How to make the perfect salt rim? See below.Shake in a cocktail shaker. Take that gin and grapefruit juice and shake it together in a cocktail shaker with 4 ice cubes. We like adding 1 dash simple syrup or maple syrup, which rounds out the flavor (otherwise it’s very tart).Strain into a glass and add ice. Strain the drink into the glass and add ice. Garnish with a grapefruit wedge and you’re done!Tips for making a salt rim For the salt rim on this Salty Dog, we used flaky sea salt. You can also use kosher salt if you have it, which has large grains. Just don’t use iodized salt: it’s much too salt-forward! Here are a few tips to making a salt rim: Spread the salt on a plate in an even layer.Take a lime wedge and cut a notch in the middle: then slide it around the rim of the glass. This moistens the glass rim without having to use your fingers.To rim the glass, the salt should be on the outside rim the glass only, not the inside where it can fall into the drink. To do this, tilt the glass and gently turn so the outside edge goes into the salt.Shake off any loose salt into the sink.

Here’s how to make this tart drink, also called a Cape Codder.What’s in this vodka cranberry? Is it really that simple? Is it just vodka and cranberry juice? Yes! And no. Alex and I have added a few little elements to our recipe to really make it shine. But it’s still one of the easiest cocktails you can make. What’s in our version of a vodka cranberry? Vodka100% unsweetened cranberry juiceA touch of maple syrup or simple syrup A squeeze of lime All of those ingredients are served on the rocks (or with crushed ice). You’ll simply mix them all together with a bar spoon: no cocktail shaker needed! No fancy glassware needed here either: anything goes.A little drink history: the Cape Codder! Where did the vodka cranberry cocktail come from? Believe it or not, this classic drink was invented by Ocean Spray itself (you know, the cranberry company?). What a marketing ploy! It was invented in the 1940’s, and we’re still drinking them today. The drink was originally called a Red Devil, but it was renamed to Cape Codder in the early 1960’s. So, vodka cranberry, Cape Cod, and Cape Codder all the mean the same thing!

What’s a bourbon smash? First off: what is a bourbon smash? A smash is an icy cocktail that often highlights seasonal fruit or herbs. It’s made for hot days, and can be made with your spirit of choice (vodka, bourbon and whiskey all work). The smash is pretty variable, and flexible depending on the season. Cocktail tools for a bourbon smash For this maple bourbon smash, you’ll need a few cocktail tools. But if you’re not ready to invest, you can use one of our alternatives below! Here’s what you’ll need to make a maple bourbon smash: A cocktail shaker quickly chills cocktails by shaking them against ice, then has a strainer so you can pour out the cocktail without pouring out the ice as well. What can you use instead? Use a glass mason jar. Place the cocktail in the jar and fill it with ice. Screw on the top and shake away!A cocktail muddler is used to mash fruits and herbs in a glass or cocktail shaker to release their flavor. What can you use instead? Use a wooden spoon to gently mash the berries, lime wedges, and mint leaves.How to make a maple bourbon smash Once you’ve got the tools for the job, making this maple bourbon smash is seriously simple. Overall, you’ll find that the maple syrup here doesn’t add a maple flavor; it’s simply used as a natural sweetener instead of simple syrup.   Here are the basic steps to make this bourbon smash (scroll down for the full recipe): Muddle lemon and mint in a cocktail shaker.Add bourbon and maple syrup. Shake with ice.Strain into a glass. Add a bit of soda water, if desired. Serve with crushed ice.

Top it off with soda water for a sparkle.What’s a Southside Fizz? A Southside Fizz is the Southside Cocktail with soda water. What’s a Southside? It’s a cocktail made with mint, lemon, lime, and gin. The best way to describe it? A Tom Collins + a Mojito! Here’s exactly what’s in a Southside Fizz: How to muddle mint…the right way! This Southside Fizz cocktail requires muddling the mint before making the drink. What is it? Muddling is gently mashing herbs or fruits to release their juices. This helps the flavors incorporate better, vs if you simply threw in the mint lives on their own. Here’s how to muddle the mint the right way: Step 1: Place the mint leaves in the bottom of a cocktail shaker, If you don’t have one, you can use a large metal cup or bowl.Step 2: Using a wooden cocktail muddler or unfinished wooden spoon, gently mash the mint a few times to release the juices. The key to muddling is a light touch, so don’t go overboard. Why do you have to smack the mint garnish? You’ll notice the garnish for this Southside Fizz calls to smack the mint. Wait, smack it? Yes, giving the mint leaf a gentle smack between your hands releases the essential oils in the mint. This gives the drink a much more herb-forward flavor!  Step it up: make clear ice! Want to step up your game on this Southside Fizz cocktail? Use clear ice. What is it? Clear ice is artisanal ice used in cocktails because of its crystal clear look and beautiful organic shapes. Alex is very into clear ice, and you can see from the photos that it really steps up the look of this drink! .

This unique spin on the classic cocktail is light and refreshing. How to make a watermelon muleThis watermelon mule has a subtle watermelon flavor, and is a light and refreshing version of a Moscow mule. The concept behind this version of the classic drink is using equal parts ginger beer and watermelon juice, instead of straight ginger beer. This brings in the essence of watermelon and lightens the flavor just a bit. Then, it’s got the traditional ingredients: vodka and lime juice. Because a mule is all about the carbonation in the ginger beer, this drink is not mixed in a cocktail shaker. To preserve the carbonation, it’s simply mixed right in the mug and served over ice. To make a watermelon mule, you’ll need to start with making watermelon juice: which is very easy using watermelon and a blender! No juicer is required. How to make watermelon juice? Simply cut the watermelon into cubes, then blend it up.When it’s liquid, pass it through a fine mesh strainer to strain out the particulate. Then voila: you’ve got watermelon juice!Note that you’ll get about half the quantity of watermelon juice to cubed watermelon: for example, 2 cups cubed watermelon equals about 1 cup watermelon juice. In this recipe, we’ve called for the quantities for one drink, because it’s mixed right in the cup. One drink requires only 1/3 cup watermelon juice, but that’s such a small quantity that you’ll want to make more: since you’re probably serving more than one drink at a time! So, scale up the amount of watermelon juice to fit the number of drinks you need.

Ingredients for this virgin piña colada recipe While a virgin piña colada is just a fancy name for a pineapple coconut smoothie, giving it a mocktail moniker makes it all the more fun. It comes out frosty and tropical, with a hint of fruity coconut and just sweet enough. For the sweetener we used maple syrup, and you can add a splash extra if desired. Our cocktail recipe also uses lime juice, but we went minimalist for the non alcoholic piña colada version. Here are the ingredients in a virgin piña colada recipe: Frozen pineappleCoconut milkMaple syrup Throw these in a blender, and you’ve got a tasty signature drink in no time.

Blood orange juice gives it an eye-catching vibrant color. What’s an Italian margarita? An Italian margarita is a variation on a classic margarita  that uses amaretto in place of the orange liqueur (Cointreau).  It uses orange juice, lime juice, and tequila. The flavor has backend notes of almond and citrus, but the front end flavor is like your favorite margarita. Think of it as a sophisticated version of a margarita (kind of like the Cadillac Margarita . Here’s what’s in an Italian margarita: TequilaOrange or blood orange juiceAmarettoLime juiceUse blood orange juice for the brilliant color! You can use orange juice from a standard navel orange, and this Italian margarita turns out with a warm orange color. But if you’d like it to look bright red like these photographs: use a blood orange! Blood oranges have very sweet juice and a hot pink color.  If you can find them, they’re absolutely worth buying. Cheater tip: If you like the look but can’t find blood oranges, a tiny drizzle of pomegranite or cranberry juice would work too!

What’s in a cucumber martini? This cucumber martini is a spin on the vodka martini, which itself is a spin on the classic martini. The dry martini is on the list of International Bartender Association’s IBA official cocktails , meaning it has an official definition: gin and vermouth. The cucumber version swaps vodka for gin, and adds a few special ingredients that bring new life to the classic! Here are the ingredients in a cucumber martini: VodkaDry white vermouthSt Germain2 slices cucumber How to make a cucumber martini (basic steps) It’s very simple to make a cucumber martini!

Shake for 15 seconds until cold.Strain into a glass and garnish with cucumber slices. The right way to muddle Muddling is gently mashing herbs or fruits, or in this case vegetables to release their juices.

What’s the secret? It’s all natural, featuring wine and strawberries. Here’s how to make frozen rosé. What is frose (frozen rose)? Are you ready for our frose recipe? If you haven’t tried it, frose is frozen rosé wine. Basically, it’s a mashup between a frozen cocktail and that quintessential summer wine. Most frosé recipes are sickly sweet, and freezing can remove the character of the wine. So Alex and I set about to create a frose recipe that was not too sweet AND tastes like rosé wine. We think we were successful, and so do our friends who very willingly volunteered as our taste testers! Wondering how to make frozen rose? Keep reading! All-natural frose ingredients This naturally sweetened cocktail recipe uses just three simple ingredients: rosé winestrawberrieshoneyFrose is very simple to make: the hardest part is thinking ahead. If you can, whip up the frose recipe the night before, then blend and serve the day of. Despite the name, it’s not just rose that’s frozen: simply freezing rose makes it bitter and flat-tasting. A froze recipe includes sugar to offset the bitterness (usually made as a simple syrup), and strawberries to add some color and additional flavor.How to store it! Because this all-natural frose is frozen, you can keep the blended rose and strawberry mixture in your freezer for a few days before serving it. As long as you keep it in a sealed container, your frose should keep well in the freezer! Try not to keep it frozen for too long though, since the fresh strawberries and the rose wine lose some of their flavor once frozen.

This herb popcorn is spiced up with butter and a mix of dried herbs, and works as a healthy snack or for entertaining.

It’s savory, buttery, and has little gooey bits of herbs throughout. We were pleasantly surprised at how tasty it was! How to make herb popcorn? First of all, let’s talk popcorn methods. Alex and I have a few different methods we like to use: Stovetop method: For the best flavored popcorn, we use the stovetop method. Here’s our tried and true method for How to Make Popcorn on the Stove. You can use a normal pot, or a stovetop popcorn popper. Air popper: For a spin on healthy popcorn, we use an air popper. The air popper is truly easy to use — even easier than stovetop, and it doesn’t require any oil!  Now, for the topping! Here are the ingredients we’ve used for this herb popcorn: ButterDried all-herb mixNutritional yeastPopcorn salt

Serve with tortilla chips, fish, black beans, tacos, and more! This peach salsa recipe takes less than 15 minutes to make and requires no special ingredients. To make homemade peach salsa, you first need to peel and dice the ripe peaches. Then finely chop the red onion and jalapeño pepper, making sure to de-seed the pepper if you don’t want super spicy salsa. Roughly chop some cilantro, then mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl with a squeeze of fresh lime juice and a sprinkle of kosher salt. You can eat this fresh peach salsa recipe right away! Or you can let it rest for a few minutes on the counter before digging in. This gives the salsa ingredients time to come together and gives it a better flavor. This fresh peach salsa recipe will keep in the fridge for a few days, but the peaches will soften a bit over time so you’ll want to eat this salsa fast! Before serving the leftover salsa, give it a good stir to mix up all the juices that have pooled on the bottom of the container.

They use both Greek yogurt and mayo to make the perfect flavor.Deviled eggs are easy to make, but we have a few tips to error proof the process! Let me assure you, Alex and I are pros at figuring out how to “break” a recipe! Here’s our master recipe for how to boil eggs and then make deviled eggs.Step 1: Bring to a boil, remove from heat, and rest for 15 minutes. The first step in how to make easy deviled eggs: hard boiling them! A few tips about making hard boiled eggs: older eggs are easier to peel. So if you can arrange it, it’s nice to use eggs that have been in the refrigerator for a bit. To boil your eggs, place them in the bottom of a pot and cover them with 1 inch of water. Bring the water to a boil. As soon as it boils, remove the pot from the heat, cover it, and let the eggs sit for 15 minutes. Step 2: Let the eggs sit in an ice bath for 15 minutes. Prepare a large bowl of ice water. When the eggs are done in the pot, place them directly into the bowl of ice water. Let them sit for 15 minutes.Step 3: Peel the eggs, cut them in half, and remove the yolk. Here’s a tip on how to peel hard boiled eggs! Gently tap the larger end of the egg so that the shell crushes (it has an air bubble which makes it easy to peel). Then start to peel off the shell. Continue peeling the shell until all the pieces are removed. Then cut each egg in half and remove the yolk with a spoon.Step 4: Mix the yolks with yogurt, mayo, and mustard. Finally, here’s how to make the filling for the easy deviled eggs! Mix the egg yolks with Greek yogurt, mayo, Dijon mustard, yellow mustard and salt. There are two methods for mixing: you can mash the yolks in a bowl with a fork and then mix in the remaining ingredients. However, this can sometimes make the consistency lumpy. If you’re planning to pipe your filling using a pastry bag it’s helpful to mix the filling in a stand mixer or electric mixer. This helps it to get totally creamy with out lumps. If there are any lumps in the pastry bag, it makes it very difficult to pipe out the filling. Step 5: Fill the eggs, garnish and serve! Use a pastry bag to pipe the filling into the deviled eggs, or simply use a spoon! The pastry bag is helpful if you want it to look totally uniform like the ones in the photo. But of course, it’s not necessary: you can just scoop it back in with a spoon! Garnish with dried dill and smoked paprika, or a mixture of both for a festive feel. You also can use normal paprika: we just like the smoky flair that the smoked paprika adds. It’s nice if you can find it!

But this one includes artichokes, amped Parmesan cheese (yum), and a trip into a hot oven.

Now’s the time to try. This irresistibly salty and crunchy snack makes crispy kale taste like the best invention since sliced bread.Kale chips are very easy to make: you just need to know a few tips to make them come out perfectly. There are lots of ways to make them; here’s what Alex and I like to do for ours: Use Tuscan kale. Alex and I prefer Tuscan kale to curly kale: the flavor is milder and it’s a little sturdier for chips. See below.Wash and thoroughly dry the kale. You’ll want the kale ultra dry so that the oil sticks to it.Tear the kale into “chip” sized bites. Remove the stems, since these get tough and stringy in the oven.Season to perfection. You’ll mix with olive oil, then add salt and onion powder Bake at 275 for 30 minutes. Place the chips in a single layer on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake at low heat for 30 minutes: you’ll be surprised at how crispy they become!
