This classic tastes, well, fresh as a daisy
Summer is winding down here, but the heat still lingers. So we need to sip something cool and refreshing. Like The Gin Daisy.
Its crisp taste is ideal for an afternoon by the pool, or as a predinner drink.
And here in the US, the long Labor Day weekend is approaching. Daisy would love to be invited to your annual cookout.

Wonderful as a dip or sauce for grilled meat or fish
Ready for some bright, tangy flavor? Just dish up the Salsa Verde.
This dish, which is made with tomatillos, takes just minutes to whip up. It’s equally good at room temperature or chilled, so you can prepare a batch at the last minute while you’re grilling meat or fish.
Best of all, it will turn your next ordinary meal into a fiesta.

Ah, the 1920s. Flappers. Sheiks. Jazz. Prohibition. Bootleggers. A roaring stock market.
Despite Prohibition – or maybe because of it – during the 1920s drinking gained a social acceptance it never had before. And the stock market was creating more millionaires (at least on paper) than history had ever known.
So The Millionaire Cocktail was born. Enjoy it before The Crash comes.

This zesty, refreshing vegan starter tames summer heat
The dog days of summer are here in our part of the world. So let’s cool off with gazpacho, shall we?
This peachy version combines sweet summer fruit with savory cukes and bell peppers, then lets them romp in chipotle fire.
Make this soup ahead of time and pop it into the fridge. Then – chill out!

This classic is perfect for celebrating the August 21st solar eclipse
The US will experience a total eclipse of the sun this month – the first one to completely cross the lower 48 states since 1918.
We’re lucky enough to live near the path of eclipse totality (where the sun is completely covered), so we’re gearing up! Of course, that includes laying in the makings for The Eclipse Cocktail.
It’s not every day you get an eclipse, so drink up!
