There’s no better way to be welcomed into Spring than with a refreshing drink. While red wine is by go-to during cooler months, a cold cocktail simply can’t be beat as the weather warms up and the days become longer. This drink is so easy to make and doesn’t require loads of ingredients which is always a plus in my book. The lemon drop mixer is the perfect combination of sweet and sour — something that can definitely be a little tricky to find! I never like a drink that’s too sweet so it gets two thumbs up from me! The recipe is right on the back of the bottle but I will include it below so you can see just how easy it is! Warning to my light weight friends out there, you’ll be tempted to guzzle this tasty drink but pace yourself! It’s strong and you don’t even know it! If lemon isn’t your thing, find more great mixers here! I’ve got my eye on the Spicy Margarita mix next!

Oh boy, every year I swear by this time I’ll be done Christmas shopping, gifts wrapped and under the tree so that the rest of the season can be spent admiring all the beauty that comes with the season. To say that hasn’t happened would definitely be an understatement. Don’t worry though, I’ve got the perfect solution for those on your list (and mine)! Gift baskets can seem a bit impersonal at times but with Stonewall Kitchens there are so many options to suit that special person on your list!
My husband and I love to make breakfast so we made the blueberry pancakes over the weekend. They were so delicious and it was super convenient to have everything we could need to make them from one cute box! Plus, the blueberry jam is killer! That’s not the coolest part though, follow the instructions below and you can win one of your own. Don’t forget to check out the rest of their Holiday Gift Baskets here!

Oh guacamole, I love you so. I really, truly do! My husband can vouch for this because it gets made around here at least once a week. We always have avocados and corn chips stocked just in case the guacamole bug bites! This is my favorite combination so far and it’s based on the guacamole my dad always made. He knows best, it starts with the garlic and lemon!
There isn’t much of a “recipe” here which you know if you’ve made guacamole before. You simply mash the avocado and combine all the ingredients. I’m usually pretty heavy handed with the tapatio because I like my guacamole to have a nice spice to it. Add a tasty margarita and you’re ready for a good time! Do you guys have any good guacamole recipes you swear by?! Let me know, I’d love to try them!
6 cherry tomatoes, diced
1/8 red onion diced
