I love to change up my original Bloody Mary recipe by trying out different hot sauces, but this time I decided to kick up the heat with the vodka instead! Cut a jalapeño in half and drop into a large canning jar. Add 2-3 cups of vodka and place in the refrigerator for 24 hours. My jalapeño wasn’t too hot so I actually let mine go for 48 hours, but… Keep Reading
I’ve always felt that sparkling wines were reserved for special occasions only, but why wait?! Celebrate the last few weeks of Summer with Ruffino’s Prosecco in this citrus infused sparkling cocktail!
After a particularly long and stressful day I decided it was time for a drink! I threw together this cocktail and sat down to watch the sunset when I couldn’t help notice that my drink was the same color as the sky! And the Sailor Sunset was born! It’s refreshing, sweet, strong, and exactly what you need to wind down after a tough day!
It’s been awhile since I’ve posted any juice recipes, so I thought I would share my favorite summer juice! It’s light and citrusy with a refreshing twist from fresh ginger!
Wow… I feel like my childhood and adulthood just fused together! Warm chocolate rum sauce, vanilla and Sailor Jerry Rum milkshake mixture, topped with homemade whipped cream… ALSO made with Sailor Jerry Rum! I didn’t think it would be possible to take something so innocent and make it so sinfully delicious! Grab two straws and share one with your sweetheart tonight!
If you’re one of those.. “I can only drink coffee from Starbuck’s!” kind of people.. get over it! When was the last time your barista handed you an iced coffee with Sailor Jerry Rum in it?! Exactly! This concoction is perfect if you’re looking for a little hair of the dog and a caffeine pick-me-up or a nice coffee cocktail to sip on the weekends!
If there ever was the perfect hot summer day cocktail.. this is it! It’s crisp, refreshing, light, and embodies the flavors of summer! The recipe makes a big batch so it’s perfect for summer parties and BBQ’s. You can also make these without alcohol for your non-drinking guests! : )
Black cherries are one of my favorite summer fruits, so when I still had a big bag of them leftover from my Black Cherry Mini Chocolate Tarts, I decided to make tea with them. More inspiration struck when I saw the recipe for a Cherry Jerry and then this delicious cocktail was born! It’s light, sweet, and refreshing.. Perfect for those long summer days!
I can’t get enough of the sweet and spicy combination when it comes to cocktails, so when I received a request for a delicious sangria recipe I jumped at the chance to concoct something sweet, spicy, and summery! It’s light, refreshing, and has a much needed kick to keep your taste buds intrigued!
I made these for Cinco de Mayo and they turned out great, so of course when I go to make them last night to do as a post here, I knocked over the cocktail shaker before the margarita mix ever hit the glasses.. After soaking up a sticky puddle and slinging around words that would make even a sailor blush.. I made an entire new batch that turned out wonderful!… Keep Reading
The first week of June in Portland is typically known as Fleet Week, where the U.S. Navy arrives and docks at Portland’s sea wall during the Rose Festival. Unfortunately, this year they had to cancel because of the budget cuts. Since the U.S. Navy cannot make it here I decided to bring them to you with a Sailor Jerry classic, the Homeward Bound! This simple yet delicious combination of fresh… Keep Reading
I’m not going to lie.. every time someone mentions beets I think of Dwight Shrute from The Office! I immediately want to yell out, “Bears. Beets. Battlestar Gallactica!” My obsession with The Office aside, I’ve actually really come to love juicing beets. If you’ve never tasted one, the flavor is very earthy, which is just a nice way of me saying they taste like dirt.. in a good way! I paired this… Keep Reading
Blame it on my overwhelming need for a vacation to somewhere with white sand beaches, but I needed a taste of paradise and this did the trick! Sweet and citrusy with a kick of spice from Sailor Jerry Rum is all you need to transport yourself from this gloomy rainy spring weather!
Yesterday was a typical Portland day.. rain, gloom, and then more rain and gloom. I actually love it when it’s like that, but I’m also looking forward to a hot summer day, sitting on the porch, and sipping ice cold lemonade! Weather is too unpredictable and I’m far too impatient, so I made a big batch of strawberry basil lemonade yesterday to remind myself that summer is right around the… Keep Reading
Ohh mimosas! You’re wonderfully bubbly and delicious and never make me feel guilty about drinking before noon! I decided to add a refreshing twist to this classic cocktail by adding ruby red grapefruits!
Irish Sailor Coffee I’m going to be up front and tell you right now that there’s nothing Irish about this drink recipe, other than the fact it was adapted from a traditional Irish coffee recipe. I’m sorry! I’m just not a whiskey drinker! I am and always will be a faithful Sailor Jerry Rum girl! This one is for my fellow rum swillers!
Hangover Juice I used to call hangover juice a Bloody Mary, but when I decided to drink more rum than a pirate last week.. I needed something different! Now, at first glance this juice looks like something you would throw up when you’re hungover.. I was skeptical myself, but it’s light and citrus-y and I felt worlds better after drinking it! Whether you’re feeling a cold coming on or you’re… Keep Reading
The Cocky Rooster I’ve had this beer cocktail bookmarked for quite some time and decided I would finally give it a shot! Now I don’t want to drink beer any other way! You can also make this as spicy or as mild as you like, so don’t be scared off by the Sriracha and jalapeño! My friend April posted today that besides beer, Sriracha is something that she really misses enjoying… Keep Reading
Green Machine Juice Between traveling last week, going out to eat with family and friends, and of course Valentine’s Day yesterday, I’ve been indulging quite a bit! To get back on track though, I’ll be doing a lot of meal replacements with juices and smoothies. For anyone new to juicing, the thought of juicing vegetables and even the color of the juice can send you running the other way! I used to… Keep Reading
Sailor’s Sweetheart Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, so celebrate with a Sailor’s Sweetheart! It’s sweet, but still has a bite.. which are the qualities you would want in your Valentine anyway right? ; )
Strawberry Banana Mango Smoothie I love getting the Naked Juice Smoothie drinks, but they add up quickly. I wanted to recreate the strawberry banana flavor, but give it my own spin by adding mango! I had a glass when I made it and then saved the rest for breakfast the next day! Much cheaper and far more delicious!
Peppered Bacon Bloody Mary Bloody Mary’s are pretty delicious on their own, but Bloody Mary’s with thick cut peppered bacon?! Even better! It’s like breakfast in a glass AND you have a wonderful buzz when you’re done. Hmmm speaking of which.. I haven’t had breakfast yet.. ; )
