Say hello to the "red wine of the summer" sangria of your dreams. It is cheaper than water in Spain.

  • 1 cup lightly-sweetened lemon-lime soda

  • 1 lemon wedge

Just Putzing


One of my fiancé's favorite drinks is Soju and I am so desperate to get him to visit Seoul with me again some day. I fell in love with Korea when I was working there for 2 weeks back in 2019. Okay so what is in this fave of ours? Its a blend of rice liquor (Soju) and some fresh watermelon and lime juices. Check this watermelon cocktail out.


  • 1 mini seedless watermelon

  • 1 bottle (375ml) of soju (you can substitute with vodka, white rum or sake)

  • 1 bottle (355ml) of sprite

Sugar and Charm

Noble Pig


One of my favorite transitioning-the-seasons cocktails: a sour. Yes, there’s egg in your cocktail and it is DELICIOUS. Some simple syrup here, a dash of lime there and a splash of Pisco (a Peruvian brandy) and you are in business my friend. Check out the recipe here.


  • 2 ounces of pisco

  • 1/2 ounce of lemon

  • 1 ounce green apple juice

  • 1/2 oz Grade B Maple Syrup

  • 1 egg white

  • Garnish with bitters

Honestly Yum


A classy and sophisticated sparkling aperitif with Champagne, crème de cassis and fresh berries. Is it too cheesy to say this drink is a oui oui? Recipe can be found here.

  • Berries to garnish
