One of my favorite features of my bigger garden? Having permanent space for herbs!
We loved this classic cocktail with gin, Lillet, Cointreau and citrus!
A tangy, simple and classic gin cocktail.
It has been the best weekend. We stayed home a lot. We went to see Birdman and loved it- you should check it out. It’s sure to be an Oscar contender. We made some great meals and we also started watching Transparent, which is *awesome* after a couple of episodes. I’m excited to be back […]
I suppose this drink doesn’t really resemble a French 75 that much anymore. But that’s where I started, so I’m keeping the name. Also, hooray! It’s my first cocktail recipe in several weeks, featuring local cranberries and a fun local spirit as well. I created this recipe with an eye to the holidays. On Thanksgiving […]
Woohoo! The Cocktail Diaries are back for real. And I have a renewed energy for them, because we just bought a bottle of Campari, which opens up a ton of new doors for cocktails. I had to start with one of my favorites, the negroni. It’s been SUCH a busy weekend. We are in the […]

We went up to Sauvie Island and picked blueberries, strawberries and two kinds of raspberries. The strawberries have already […]
I hope everyone is having a lovely Memorial Day weekend. I know I am! I started with a list of things to do and well, I think I’m done with half of them. Now I just need to do the hard ones 🙂 I am really enjoying the long weekend, though. We’ve worked in the […]
It’s Sunday evening, and I’m mixing cocktail/making a huge mess again, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. I’m fresh off a fun weekend full of activity. Dave and I made the most epic home dinner ever on Friday, with tuna sushi, cream cheese wontons and glazed peas – don’t worry, it’s all coming […]
