Halloween is my favorite holiday! Here are my Halloween-inspired “Spooky Spirits.” These cocktails are my creepy twists on classics that can help set a spooky mood for your Halloween festivities — they’ll give your guests something to scream about.
Did you know October is national apple month? And this week is apple cider week here in NYC! With this in mind here are some other ways to use those extra apples from the farm (instead of pie).
One of the fun things about working at FreshDirect is that we get to meet a lot of passionate people.
From farmers to entrepreneurs, there are so many people who love food and we learn a lot from them.
One of these entrepreneurs is Ben Weiss who founded Bai Antioxidant Infusions. These drinks are based on the coffeefruit: the casing that surrounds a coffee bean. He found this out while sourcing coffee. So he started making drinks out of the coffeefruit in his kitchen and then sold them out of the trunk of his car.
We just started carrying these new products in the shop so to celebrate, his team came up with these fun mocktails and cocktails that are perfect to welcome the Fall season….
Memorial Day welcomes us into the summer season with backyard barbeques, poolside parties, and get-togethers galore! Be prepared to welcome your guests with a couple of easy cocktails perfect for summer sipping.
We find our spirits in Williamsburg, Brooklyn at New York Distilling Company. The distillery produces two brilliant gins that will highlight your cocktail hour- Perry’s Tot Navy Strength Gin and Dorothy Parker American Gin. Different botanicals and alcoholic strengths separate these gins stylistically while they share an artisan spirit of New York City’s fascinating historical culture….
Derby Day is upon us! Place your bets and break out your cocktail equipment because it’s time to make some festive cocktails for the occasion!
We start with the classic. The Mint Julep is the quintessential tipple for Derby Day and it’s fairly simple to make.
The Mint Julep calls for four ingredients- bourbon, mint, sugar, and water. When entertaining on Derby Day, be sure to start with this cocktail and you and your guests will be off to the races!
We look to Buffalo Trace Distillery’s Bourbon as the base of the drink. Its richness and balance is the perfect setting for The Perfect Julep….
To help ring in 2013 with a splash, I decided to try some new bubbly cocktails that were low on prep time but big on flavor. These three sparklers are delicious, exciting, and a unique way to countdown to the New Year. …
‘Tis the season for throwing holiday parties, and excellent cocktails add a level of sophistication to any festive gathering.
Creating your own cocktails, as opposed to using pre-made concoctions, will maximize both the hospitality offered to guests and the quality of the cocktail in hand. This doesn’t mean you have to spend all night as the bartender.
Check out these easy-to-prepare mixable matches for your next fête:
Double Cross Vodka with Fever Tree Tonic Water, Fever Tree Club Soda, Employees Only Bloody Mary
The silky, sophisticated expression of Double Cross Vodka will work wonders with the crisp and complex Fever Tree Tonic Water in a refreshing Vodka Tonic. Don’t like the bite that tonic offers? Make a smart and simple Vodka Soda with fresh lemon. Brunch parties will be perfect for the hedonistic pair of Double Cross and Employee’s Only Bloody Mary for a proper eye-opener….
We’re back delivering to the Hamptons and Memorial Day is coming up, kicking off the start of summer. That means our favorite time of year is back: cocktail hour with friends and drinks by the pool (or, in my case, drinks on a Brooklyn roof while imagining drinks by the pool). Experimenting with cocktail recipes is the most fun you can have with a blender, and the best part is: they’re almost impossible to mess up. Seasonal fruit, juice, and quality wine—where can you go wrong?
So in anticipation of the season, I ordered our freshest fruits and my favorite wines, invited a friend with discerning tastes (just kidding, he’ll drink anything), and started mixing things up in the kitchen!
I’m not really one to follow recipes closely—which I think stems from a problem with authority, even in the form of recipe directions—so I added basic drinks to our One-Click Recipe section and new Facebook Recipe Finder. That way you can get some ideas while substituting your fruit and alcohol faves….
Mother’s Day is a time to give back to the ladies in our lives and I think the gift of a finely prepared cocktail is welcome at most homes.
We bookend the occasion with easy-to-make cocktails designed for the aperitif course and dessert course. The Cherry Jussara welcomes Spring time notions of açai berry, cherry, and citrus for a lovely start to the afternoon.
A decadent ending to dinner comes in the form of Nonna’s Coffee, a dessert martini of amaro, coffee liqueur, and whole milk….
