Serve up this blackberry hibiscus spritzer that’s both refreshing and memorable for your Father’s Day BBQ or summer entertaining. Whether you’ve got a dad/husband who prefers creative drinks over beer (that’s mine!) or you just want to serve up a chilled summer non-alcoholic beverage that’s more exciting than soda or plain iced tea – this spritzer fits the bill. Though, a splash of sparkling wine in place of the sparkling water would be delicious too if that’s more your speed.
There are two kinds of people in the world: Those who love iced coffee so much they need it right now, and those who love iced coffee so much they’re willing to wait for it. (OK, I guess there are also people who don’t care for iced coffee, but I like to think it’s just that they haven’t found the right brew yet.)
Being a mom is more than a 9-to-5 job, which means it can often require more than an average amount of coffee to keep things running smoothly. While flowers and chocolate and handmade cards are always appreciated on Mother’s Day, we suspect there are quite a few moms out there who could really go for an extra boost on this special day—and the only thing that could make the perfect coffee even better is when it’s as beautiful as it is delicious.
Spring is the time that everything in life gets a refresh. While the flowers start to bloom and baby birds start to chirp, your coffee equipment is also begging for some attention. Not only does it feel good to wipe away the grime and grit left by a winter of desperate brewing—because we all needed something hot and heavy to get us through those cold, dark mornings—but it also will noticeably make your coffee taste better.
This is a cruel time of year. March can either be the doldrums—not quite yet spring but no longer winter—or the season when wanderlust sets in big time. While we can’t really help with the climate where you live, what we can do is help sate some of that latter craving by brewing up a few worldly, globally-inspired coffee drinks that don’t require a passport (but do appeal to a sense of adventure).
