  • Weekend Refreshment ~ Rock Candy Cocktails

      

     

    Are you wanting to dress up your cocktails for an upcoming holiday party? 

    How about placing a stick of rock candy as a stirrer for any cocktail?  It's a fun and easy way to elevate any drink.  Aside from just being a beautiful garnish, your guests can enjoy this retro candy afterwards!  It's booze AND candy, so consider it a win-win.  During a recent carnival themed event we used this trick to kick up the guest's cocktails and it was quite the hit.  Have you tried this sweet treat?

    Cheers to the weekend!

  • Weekend Refreshments ~ white iced tea

    white iced tea    

    We all can agree there's nothing like a cold glass of iced tea on a hot summer day.  If you are looking to mix things up a bit... try iced white tea!  You can even create your own signature flavor by adding other herbs to this recipe.  Go ahead and make it your own summer treat!

    White Iced Tea
     

    4 white tea bags (try Choice Organic White Tea)

    4 c. water

    0.50 c. sugar

    Fresh tarragon sprigs, to taste

    Steep 4 white tea bags in 4 cups boiling water, then chill.

    Bring 1 cup water and 1/2 cup sugar to a boil, add tarragon, and steep until cool. Sweeten to taste with the resulting tarragon syrup, which will add a licorice note to the tea.
