Bomb Pop Shots Growing up my all time FAVORITE frozen treat were Bomb Pops! Those ‘rocket’ shaped Popsicles that were blue raspberry on the bottom, lemon in the middle and cherry on top. And I’m sure by now you all know what I did with the cherry portion. Well when I turned 21 I discovered Bomb Pop Shots. So whether you’re celebrating the 4th of July, Memorial Day, Labor Day or Tuesday, enjoy but please drink responsibly and never drink and drive!

How To Make Limoncello Cooking Lessons from The Kitchn It has taken me far too long to discover how amazing — and how astoundingly easy — it is to make my own limoncello. I had this hazy idea that limoncello must be a closely guarded secret kept by a sect of weathered Italian grandfathers with wooly driving caps and secretive, knowing smiles. Just me? Well, it turns out all you need to make truly incredible limoncello are some good lemons, a bottle of stiff vodka, and just a little patience. Limoncello is smooth and sweet with an intense lemon flavor. It can be sipped on its own, mixed into sparkling water, or shaken into cocktails. To make it, we're simply infusing lemon peels into vodka. What Alcohol to Use? If you have the option, 100 proof vodka or even higher-proof grain alcohol is the very best to use for making limoncello. This said, 80 proof vodka is also fine to use — it's also easier to find and less expensive than 100 proof. What Lemons to Use? If you have access to them, Meyer lemons make a superb limoncello. How Long to Infuse?

Watermelon mimosa recipe This watermelon mimosa recipe is a colorful and refreshing twist on the traditional mimosa cocktail – it is made with watermelon, orange juice, sugar to taste, sparkling wine and garnished with fresh mint. One of the things I love about summer, is being able to spend more time outside. This means making refreshing summer drinks, I especially love drinks that are made with sparkling wine – champagne or cava or prosecco. You never know when there might be an occasion to celebrate, so just in case I always keep a bottle of champagne, though lately it has been cava, in the refrigerator. This watermelon mimosa is also a good drink to make when you have guests, it is a colorful and tasteful change from the classic mimosa (yes, sometimes I mess with the classics, sorry). This watermelon mimosa recipe is a refreshing bubbly cocktail made with watermelon, orange juice, sugar to taste, sparkling wine and garnished with fresh mint.
