I was shopping the produce aisles at Whole Foods the other night when I spotted fresh figs! Obviously I get excited at any sign that the weather is warming up and purchased said figs immediately. One of my favorite things to do with figs (besides just eat them!) is to put them in cocktails. Especially Spring cocktail recipes because they have such a delicious flavor to them. This cocktail recipe is super simple and yet has a chic and sophisticated quality to it. Check out the recipe below:
If you’ve gone all Summer without trying these scrumptious cocktails, drop what you’re doing and head to your nearest bar or liquor shop! The way I see it, there’s only about a month or so left of Summer. In that span of time I fully intend on soaking up as much Summer and sunshine that I can get. Who’s ever with me, say tequila!
It’s almost the beginning of Summer and I wanted a new cocktail to enjoy. Something light and refreshing yet still tasty and a little sweet. This is my take on the traditional Blackberry Smash cocktail and it really hit the spot. I simplified the ingredients since (as I’ve mentioned in previous posts) I’m not a natural-born bartender. This drink comes together pretty quickly and it is delish!
serving size: 1
- 1 nip of vodka
- 1 tsp maple syrup
- sparkling water or club soda
- Mash up 6 – 8 blackberries in the bottom of the glass and add maple syrup
- Add ice and garnish with a few extra blackberries
- Add vodka and then sparkling water
- Stir, sip and enjoy!

Valentine’s day is right around the corner! How did that happen? So I wanted to share some tasty pink treats with you. I love making a special recipe for Valentine’s day since the restaurants get so crowded during this particular holiday. Which I feel takes some of the romance away when you are shoved into a crowded table at an overpacked restaurant. Instead, I prefer to stay home and keep the romance alive with a tasty treat or two! Most of these are yummy desserts but there’s also some breakfast ideas and a delicious cocktail to try.
Happy Cinco de Mayo! I’m excited for this holiday weekend and also excited to share my new cocktail recipe with you for my Avocado Vodka Tonic. (p.s. this works great with tequila too!) This is a fun drink recipe that’s refreshing for Spring but would be great for Summer bbq’s as well. Check it out:
- 1 ripe avocado
- 4 shots of vodka
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 tbsp lime juice
- 1 tbsp cilantro
- tonic water
- 2 pinches of sea salt
- In blender, puree all ingredients except the tonic water.
- Split mixture evenly between two glasses.
- Fill glasses with tonic water and stir.
- Garnish with remaining cilantro.
