Holy moly, it’s May y’all! I have no clue where April went, but I do know that I happen to love May! There are so many reasons as to why I love May, one of them being that my hubby and I got married in May and this year makes 11 years! (Say what?) Time sure does fly guys, and I can’t believe that we have almost been married over a decade! (Crazy town!) In addition to it being our anniversary month, another reason I happen to love May is because of Cinco de Mayo and because I love any excuse to drink margaritas and eat chips and salsa! Who’s with me? My refreshing hibiscus margarita is just the cocktail you need to kickstart your May off right and to celebrate Cinco de Mayo the right way!

We are nearing the end of the year and I cannot believe how quickly this holiday season has passed by! It seems like every year I look so forward to the holidays and in a blink of an eye, they disappear! Luckily we still have New Year’s to celebrate before heading into 2019 which is why I partnered with my friends at Village Farms to bring you two recipes to enjoy during your celebrations! My refreshing Cucumber Rosemary Gimlet is the cocktail you are going to want to sip on during your New Year’s Eve festivities and my hearty One-Dish Black Eyed Pea Stew is the perfect dish to cook up on New Year’s Day! These two recipes are easy to make, full of flavor, and you are going to want to make them year after year!
Christmas is 12 days away! I repeat, 12 days away! AHHHHH. I mean I’m so excited for it, but I also have about a bajillion things on my to-do list to get done before we go to my parents house next weekend! I feel like I am alway so excited for the holidays and then BAM it’s over in a flash! I wish we could just pause the actual week of Christmas and put it in slow motion so we could soak it up just a little bit more! Things like soaking up time with friends and family, savoring good food, and sipping festive cocktails! My meyer lemon bourbon mule is one of those cocktails that you should definitely be sipping during all of your holiday festivities!
It’s almost Friday friends, we made it! Has it been a long week for you? It hasn’t been as long for me as it has been odd. Monday started out very atypical and I have had a hard time getting in the groove ever since so I am excited about the weekend for sure! Of course weekends mean cocktails are on deck too and I am pretty excited about this new one that I came up with while my mom was in town! My pink prickly pear citrus spritzers are the perfect drink to whip up all weekend long!
Hold the pumpkin, summer isn't over yet! While I am all on board for the weather changing slightly (we have a bit to go here in Texas still), I am still eating up all the summer fruits and I'm just not quite ready to say goodbye. Labor Day is a few days away and with the long weekend ahead, I am planning out our menus for each day and you bet that includes cocktails, because what holiday weekend is complete without a good cocktail? My watermelon mint slush is a drink I have been making all summer long and will continue to make until watermelons have seen their better days for the year.
Have you ever had a guava? I had my first one in Costa Rica almost ten years ago and fell in love with their unique flavor, that is hard to describe until you taste one! While we were in Hawaii a couple of weeks go, my love for the fruit reawakened with all of the guava that was readily available to us wherever we went! I knew I needed to find some when we returned home! While it is hard to find the pink variety here in Texas, I was able to find the white flesh variety at my local grocery store! Both are delicious by the way, so I snagged a bag of them! I used them to create my guava caipirinhas, which is a twist on one of my favorite Brazilian cocktails!
