Strawberry Basil Lemonade This Strawberry Basil Lemonade is coming to ya from the archives but I’ve given it a bit of a face lift. Strawberry Basil Lemonade was basically the first drink recipe I ever post on WGC and it’s been my most requested drink ever since. It’s a refreshing blend of homemade lemonade that gets fresh strawberries and basil pureed into the mixture. Depending on who’s enjoying this with me, I’ll add a glug or two of gin or just leave it “virgin” and enjoy it over some ice. Either way, it’s the best drink out there and you should probably be drinking this come Monday by the pool working on your tan. At least that’s what I’ll be doing poolside, in Tucson, with my besties. And while this doesn’t directly figure into book tour, I’ve also managed to schedule just about every single meal while I’m in Tucson so I can hit up my favorite places to stuff my face while I’m there. So in the meantime, grab some lemons, strawberries and a handful of fresh basil and let’s make some cocktails or mocktails!
50 Smoothies : Recipes and Cooking 1. Banana Blend 2 bananas, 1/2 cup each vanilla yogurt and milk, 2 teaspoons honey, a pinch of cinnamon and 1 cup ice. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. Homemade Coffee Creamer My friends tell me the one thing they can’t give up is their flavored coffee creamer. I can understand. Creamy, sweet, smooth, with all sorts of different flavors to choose from. The problem is the ingredients. Have you ever read what’s in those bottles? They are full of artificial colors, flavors, preservatives, refined sugars, high fructose corn syrup, and hydrogenated oils. So if you’re hooked on store-bought creamer then today’s your day. Next time you have friends over for a gathering, make a few batches of homemade coffee creamer, put them in cute bottles and have a coffee bar. A great alternative to regular coffee is herbal coffee. *Since posting these recipes in September 2010, I have developed a few new recipes: Caramel Coffee Creamer and Honey Vanilla Coffee Creamer, Sugar Free and Dairy Free Coffee Creamer **Teeccino contains barley, so if you need to avoid gluten an organic decaf would be a better option.

Great Southern Spirit: Firefly Sweet Tea Vodka | Thirsty South There is no drink more Southern than sweet tea. Not bourbon. Not Tennessee whiskey. Not the mint julep or the Sazerac or Southern Comfort. Sorry Coca-Cola, even in Atlanta you take a backseat to sweet tea. And sweet tea spans the South – it sits on tables from Tallahassee to Texas and everywhere in between. Jim Irvin and Scott Newitt at Firefly Distillery on Wadmalaw Island, South Carolina, struck Southern gold when they came up with their sweet tea vodka in 2008. Whether you drink it straight in a tall glass filled with ice, or in a “John Daly” (one of the best cocktail names ever in our opinion – basically an Arnold Palmer plus vodka!) The John Daly 1 part Firefly Sweet Tea Vodka 1 part lemonade (we like the Simply Lemonade brand) Pour over ice in a tall glass, garnish with a slice of lemon and/or a sprig of mint. While you’re here, be sure to check out our visit to Firefly Distillery on Wadmalaw Island.
The Ultimate Strawberry Lemonade One of the first times I ever realized that – HEY! I can cook for myself! – was when I first learned to make lemonade. I magically found the refrigerated lemon juice at our house and followed the directions to make my own lemonade. Sorry for the detour. Anyway, there was a summer there where I made my own lemonade every single day, making sure to rub it in my sister’s face that I knew how to and she didn’t. The key to this being the ultimate lemonade is that you blend it up with the lemon rind in there. And any time of day for that matter. (makes 2 pint-glass servings with ice) 3/4 cup sugar2 large lemons, microwaved for 30 seconds2 cups water1 cup of frozen strawberries, microwaved for 1 minute (you could use fresh, but I think the frozen works better here) In a blender squeeze the lemons and add the rest of the lemon, rind and all. **Note: I like to microwave the lemons to release more of the juices, and microwaving the strawberries does the same sort of thing.
Stacy Stowers There’s a very good reason why it’s called the Happy Shake! Though this creamy blend tastes like a delicious dessert, it’s chock-full of spinach, berries and super happy foods, like raw chocolate and maca. The Happy Shake is a meal replacement. It’s a key place to start when trying to lose excess weight, increase energy levels, and get healthier and happier. Before you get started, keep in mind the Happy Shake is more about technique than anything else. ingredients: 1/2 cup water 3-4 cups spinach 1 Tbs. coconut oil 1 Tbs. raw maca powder 2 Tbs. raw cacao powder 1 cup FROZEN blueberries 3/4 cup FROZEN cherries 1/4 cup FROZEN banana Optional: a little raw honey for those who like extra sweetness Optional: 3 ice cubes or a small handful of ice for those hot humid days In your Vitamix or blender start with: 1. 2. 3. If you are using a raw egg, you will need to adjust the amount of water, meaning less water. I have to say, in my experience, I have never met a bad egg. 4 . 5. 6. 7.
Strawberry Vodka I was scrolling through Twitter recently and one of the folks that I follow mentioned “Strawberry Vodka.” Normally fruit-flavored vodka wouldn’t interest me, I was happy to hear about a simple recipe and technique from Sean Timberlake of Punk Domestics, and since it was strawberry season and my market was bursting with fresh berries, I decided to give it a go. I made it myself the following day and it was quick, and wonderful. The flavor of the vodka is like drinking syrupy berries in their prime with a kick of alcohol in the aftermath, and it could not be easier to make. by Sean Timberlake of Punk Domestics Vodka infusions were my gateway drug to DIY (Do-It-Yourself) food. In many ways, it’s my favorite form of preserving. The basics of vodka infusion couldn’t be simpler: Cut up fruit, steep in vodka, strain, drink. Always use perfectly ripe, clean and organic fruit. We’re lucky to have some of the best strawberries available anywhere, right here in San Francisco. Limoncello (Hedonia)
Perfect Iced Coffee Iced coffee is my life. When I wake up, often around the time party animals on the west coast are just heading home, I start each day not with a cup of freshly brewed hot java, but with a tall, blessed glass of creamy iced coffee in a glass. I’ve been an iced coffee freakazoid for years and years. To say I couldn’t live without it is an understatement. Iced coffee is a complicated thing, and there are many different approaches. 1. Given the previous set of facts, one would assume that the logical solution would be to brew hot coffee, then transfer the brew to the fridge, allow it to cool, and use it to make iced coffee from there. There are reasons this method results in a smoother, richer, more delicious concentrate than simply brewing strong coffee and refrigerating it. (Note: I’ve totally adapted/tweaked coffee/water amounts to suit my own tastes. I start with a big ol’ container. Rip open a pound of ground coffee. Pour in the coffee. Mount Bliss. Or, at the very least, my heart. Oh.
