Dark and Stormy Icebox Cake
Cool and tasty, the perfect antidote to summer’s swelter
No-bake cake? We’re in!
Especially when it tastes like a Dark and Stormy Cocktail – with whipped cream.
So grab your bottle of rum and get ready to whip up a cool dessert. Yo ho ho!

The Mezcal Negroni Cocktail
Smoky and intriguing – with a bit of bite
Mezcal has attitude. It’s sharper tasting than tequila (a close relative) and carries its smokiness with swagger.
So what happens when you mix mezcal with Campari and sweet vermouth? A Negroni-like cocktail with spellbinding charm.

Deconstructed Fajitas with Grits
Fajita flavor taken to the next level
Don’t you hate it when your taco falls apart? Just as you’re ready to take a juicy bite, fajita strips and onions land on your lap.
Fortunately, we’ve found a better way. We disassembled this dish and substituted a bed of cheesy, spicy grits for tortilla wraps. Our version of fajitas is easier to make — and even tastier than the original. Not to mention better looking than a lap full of grease.
Take that, gravity.

The Ramos Gin Fizz Cocktail
A cool and refreshing New Orleans classic
New Orleans is famous for its cocktails. And one of the most beloved is the Ramos Gin Fizz.
Home bartenders rarely make it, though. Mostly because they’ve heard you need to shake it for ages to make it “properly.”
Well, no worries. We can offer some shortcuts that get great results.
Your wrists will thank us.
