Peppermint Kiss {Cocktail}


Hello again! I am Lisa from Cooking with Curls, and I am so excited to share this cocktail with you! One of my favorite flavor combinations, is chocolate and peppermint…..I never get tired of it.

Beetlejuice Cocktail


Hello! It’s Julie from Confessions of a Cooking Diva bringing you a green apple concoction called Beetlejuice. Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice! You know I had to say it, after all that is the name of this drink. I loved that movie as a kid and was super excited when I came across this drink. It was hard to resist not making this drink. I had no idea if it would be

FROZEN inspired cocktail

FROZEN Inspired Cocktail 1

Hi everyone, it’s me Lisa from Cooking with Curls, and I am back again this month with a really fun “FROZEN” inspired cocktail!! Did you have 300 Elsa’s come to your house on Halloween? That movie is crazy popular, and that song is hard to avoid. Trust me, I’ve tried. My kids are 20 and 23, so my Disney movie watching days ended looooong ago, 😉 While I was pursuing

Frozen Mango Lime Teagarita

Frozen Mango Lime Teagarita FEAT

Two of our favorite summer time drinks are margaritas and iced tea.  Mike drinks iced tea like it’s going out of style, and  I can always go for an ice cold margarita.  When I saw Jose Cuervo’s Iced Teagarita my wheels started turning.  An iced tea margarita…could this be good?  Guess what.  It is!  I added some fresh fruit, hit blend, and made a totally yummy new cocktail! Now, if you’re not

Bahama Mama

Hello again! I am Lisa from Cooking with Curls, and I am back to share another fun cocktail with you! How has this winter been treating you? Yes, it is still technically winter. Here in Iowa, we have had snow on the ground for more than 4 months now! Next week is the official start of spring, and I am really looking forward to it. The sunshine, the warmth, to

Frozen Coconut Lemonade


Do you all hear that?  It’s summer calling! Finally. Right? 😉 I don’t know about you all, but we had a rough, rough winter here.  I am pretty sure my son was out about a month total due to snow days.  Spring and summer seemed like a distant pipe dream around here just a month or so ago.   But finally! Spring is here, summer is on the horizon, and

Caramel Apple Martini


Hello everyone! My name is Lisa and I blog over at Cooking with Curls. I am so excited to be joining the White Lights on Wednesday team as a Cocktail Contributor!

Yes, you read that correctly. 😉 I have been baking

15 St. Patrick’s Day Drinks


I love a good drink for St. Patrick’s Day.  While I’m not always into the GREEN drinks, sometimes they are can totally delicious.  But let’s not forget that Guinness, Irish cream, and some good Irish whiskey can give any one a wee bit o’ the green on St. Patty’s Day.  After years of bartending, Mike and I have been around the block and know our liquor combos.  What does and

Cuba Libra Granita

Good morning everyone! I hope you’re ready for another edition of the Pass The Cookbook Club, cause this one’s a doozy. And by doozy, I mean we’re sneaking some booze into our recipes.  Woo!     This month we’re “cooking” from Slushed.  All I needed to hear Kita say was that there were 150 boozy frozen treat recipes and I knew I had to have this cookbook.  It’s only like $7

Pumpkin Chai Hot Buttered Rum


The days are getting shorter and the evenings are getting cooler.  Fall evenings are meant for curling up under a cuddly blanket with a mug of something warm and tasty in your hands. One of my favorite winter time drinks is a nice hot buttered rum.  Butter, brown sugar, a few spices… add a shot of rum and hot water and voila!  The perfect way to warm up on a

Blue Lemonade

Hi everyone, I hope you are all having a great holiday weekend!  It’s me, Lisa from Cooking with Curls, and I am back again this month with an awesome Blue Lemonade cocktail!!

Lemon Drop Martini

lemon-drop-martini FEAT

Lemon Drop Martini a refreshing blend of tart and sweet, the perfect summer drink. My fiancé and I frequent a favorite Mexican restaurant that has the best food and the most delicious lemon drop martini. I knew that I needed to recreate this drink. That’s one of the side effects of being a food blogger, the need to analyze and recreate anything and everything you eat in a restaurant. This

Wine Smoothie

Wine Smoothie | For White Lights on Wednesday by Cooking with Curls

Greetings WLOW friends, boy do I have a treat for you today!  This is Lisa from Cooking with Curls, and I am back this month with an amazing Wine Smoothie! I have been making fruity Margaritas all summer, and jokingly referring to them as smoothies…..with alcohol. 😉  You can see my thinking right?  Fruit, pureed in a blender equals smoothie.  Smoothie equals healthy, right?  Health professionals keep saying that we

Orange Mint Julep

Orange Mint Julep FEAT

This past week has been amazing.  I’m more relaxed.  I don’t feel like there’s this constant feeling of “I have to get A, B, and C done before I go to work.”  It’s wonderful.  So…I made you all a drink to celebrate my new found nirvana. This Orange Mint Julep is a twist on the Derby classic.  Mike had bartended a private party for the Kentucky Derby this year.  They

Raspberry Pineapple Mojito

Pineapple Raspberry Mojito 4

Yesterday I had to work.  Boo.  Guess what the boys did.  They went swimming, played, and had lunch at Grammy’s house.  Which is great for them, but left me dreaming of an afternoon by the pool with a cocktail.  *sigh*  So when I got home from work, I whipped an easy to make fruity mojito to make up for my lack of pool time. This mojitio is delicious!  I don’t

Skinny Watermelon Martini

The Kristy Kringle

Kristy Kringle Feat

Guess what!  It’s time for another installment of The Secret Recipe Club! Okay.  I’ve been waiting and waiting to get this month’s SRC blog.  I first found Gastronomical Sovereignty through my SRC group.  And I’ve been stalking Kristy ever since.  I love her writing and recipes.  I mean seriously anyone who starts a recipe with, “In a big-ass pot, chuck in all your ingredients.” is my kind of gal!  As always
