Mojito Perfecto

Trial and error pay off! Time-consuming, but so worth it.

Hibiscus Sangria

Rating: Unrated
I'm a big fan of sangrias and was experimenting with edible flowers. The tangy flavor of hibiscus blends very well with the sweet wine and fruit flavors in this drink! I love to eat the fruit in sangria, so the fruit to liquid ratio in this recipe is high. Feel free to reduce the fruit if you'd prefer!

Cold Brew Iced Coffee

Rating: Unrated
Delicious iced coffee. The cold brew method guarantees a drink that's refreshing without being bitter.

Salty Lemon Gin and Tonic

Rating: Unrated
Gin and tonics are one of my favorite cocktails, but I often like experimenting with different add-ins instead of the traditional lime wedge. The salt from the preserved lemon really brings out the natural botanical flavors in the gin.

Starter Smoothie

Smoothies are an easy way to get more fruits and vegetables into your day, but calories can add up fast. For a smoothie that's only about 200 calories, follow our formula and use 1 cup fresh fruit or vegetables and/or cooked, frozen vegetables + 1 cup fruit juice. Blueberries and grape juice are featured here.

The Real Mojito

Rating: Unrated
This is an authentic recipe for mojito. I sized the recipe for one serving, but you can adjust it accordingly and make a pitcher full. It's a very refreshing drink for hot summer days. Be careful when drinking it, however. If you make a pitcher you might be tempted to drink the whole thing yourself, and you just might find yourself talking Spanish in no time! Tonic water can be substituted instead of the soda water but the taste is different and somewhat bitter.
