Grapefruit Beermosa

Grapefruit Beermosa

It has been above zero for a few days and I was feeling a little springy. The warmer air, especially after an asinine deep freeze of a week of minus 40, had me craving something light, refreshing and citrusy. The Grapefruit Beermosa did just all of that. Using beer to make a cocktail is something I have enjoyed playing around with, such as this Cherry Lime Beer-Aid.

The Beersar, The 50th Anniversary of the Caesar, and Matt & Steve’s Prize Giveaway!

Being a Canadian, I am very familiar with the Caesar cocktail. It’s a cocktail that I enjoy all year round; in the winter months its spiciness can warm me up, and in the hot summer sun on the patio, they go down like water. This year is the 50th anniversary of the national cocktail, invented in Calgary in 1969! I had the opportunity to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Caesar by collaborating with Matt & Steve. Matt & Steve’s…

Cherry Lime Beer-Aid

Cherry Lime Beer-Aid

It is especially easy to turn a beer into a refreshing, boozy, summer cocktail.  When I picked up the Patio Tart Cherry Ale, made by Medicine Hat Brewing Company, I loved the beer on its own, but thought immediately it would be perfect in a cocktail – and that is how the Cherry Lime Beer-Aid came to be! It is like a lime-aid with vodka and beer! Super simple to make, especially if you already have some simple syrup handy,…

Summer in Peru: A Pisco Cocktail

Summer in Peru: A Pisco Cocktail

When we went to Peru in November of 2016 we fell in love with Pisco. Pisco sours to be specific, but I wanted to find a way to make another drink other than Pisco sours, and that’s where this Summer in Peru cocktail comes in! If you haven’t heard of Pisco before, it’s a fortified wine that is 40% alcohol, made in Peru or Chile. There’s a little debate between the two countries of who founded Pisco first. Peru says…

IPA Simple Syrup Grapefruit Cocktail

IPA Simple Syrup Grapefruit Cocktail

I really like craft beer, in case you didn’t know that about me already! My favourite characteristic of craft beer is that the ingredients are usually hand selected, specifically picked to create a certain flavour characteristic. This end goal flavour characteristic is what brings me back to trying new craft beers all the time. One ingredient in beer is hops. Hops will give beer that bitter taste but also can add a level of citrus, floral, herbal or grassy type…

Christmas Dinner Ideas

Christmas Dinner Ideas

I’ve hosted Christmas dinner a few times now and love it every time! But when I tell people I am hosting, I hear groans and “Oh sorry to hear that!”, like I’ve caught some incurable plague or something. It turns out, not everyone loves entertaining and cooking, and some actually find it frightening to be responsible for cooking Christmas dinner! If you are reading this and nodding your head yes, then keep reading! This post is packed full of ideas…

Rhubarb Hibiscus Gin and Tonic

Rhubarb Hibiscus Gin and Tonic

Instead of an August Craft Beer review I am sticking with the Rhubarb theme and using the Rhubarb Shrub I made at the beginning of the month to create this Rhubarb Hibiscus Gin and Tonic. I originally was going to review as many rhubarb beers that there were out there… and found only one… the Jackline Rhubarb Grisette by Lighthouse Brewing and I already made mention if it in my Alberta Rhubarb Cake post last spring! So a cocktail is…
