Summer’s not quite over yet (as evidenced by the 90+ degree September we’re currently having in Nashville), so I thought I’d pass this one along while there’s still some heat in the air.
You can make this with lemon, lime, key lime or any combination thereof; today I had a bunch of limes so limeade [...]

Try not to be blown away by the beauty of that picture, okay?
I saw bottled simple syrup for sale the other day for a kind of ridiculous price and I was kind of horrified. Its name is no accident, folks; this stuff is crazy easy to make.

I discovered last night that sweet and sour cocktail mix is nothing more than simple syrup and citrus juice.
Are you all rolling your eyes at me? Seriously, I don’t know what I thought was in there, but I certainly didn’t realize it was so easy. Homemade sweet and sour mix! In seconds!
I decided [...]
