Full disclosure – I thought I invented this cocktail.  It wasn’t until I started researching for a name that I discovered it was already a thing – the Lavender French 75.  It was very Michael Scott from The Office “orange-vod-juice…ka” moment – (hopefully you get that reference).  Anyway, I got the inspiration for this drink […]

Grapefruit Fizz Cocktail

I think the classic paloma may be my favorite cocktail – except I only recently learned what it was called.  A few weeks ago Erick and I were out grabbing drinks at a bar that we had been to once before.  I couldn’t remember the name of the cocktail I had there the first time, […]

Healthy Morning Drink_Twine And Braids

It’s January and like everyone else I’m on that “new year, new me” kick.  It was going pretty well until I attended a friends bachelorette party in Nashville and threw any healthy routine I had going out the window for a few days (which was totally worth it btw).  I’ve been getting back on track […]

Have I mentioned that I love holiday traditions? JK, I know I have (here, here, here…I’ll stop).  Since living with Erick we’ve made it a point to create our own traditions while carrying with us those that we each experienced while growing up. Our first Christmas morning together, three years ago, we decided to make […]

Hi, my name is Meghan and tequila is my frenemy but I’ll never turn down a margarita.  Seriously, one of Erick and my favorite spots in Jersey City is Taqueria.  They have the best margaritas and cactus tacos.  Nothing  Better.  So when I was thinking about a refreshing cocktail for this hot and humid weekend […]

Quick and easy homemade guacamole recipe coming your way!  Confession: I only recently started enjoying guacamole, or avocados for that matter.  I’ve really been trying to love them but its been an acquired taste for me.  Guacamole was something I was able to get behind because there’s typically chips involved.  Still trying to figure out […]
