Cranberry Colada

Cranberry Colada

During the holidays, we have a lot of cranberries in our kitchen. They get used in pies, made into cranberry sauce and even turned into cranberry syrups. They're actually one of our favorite parts of the holiday season, so we'll go out of our way to look for new ways to…
Spirited Mariner

Spirited Mariner

Over at Baking Bites, Nicole shared a recipe for a homemade Orange, Vanilla and Clove Vodka that she made as a base for holiday cocktails. We don't use vodka all that often in drinks around here, but vodka is a great base when you want to make an infused spirit…
