Drink This: Best Summer Brews

It seems like every year, more and more summer beers are appearing on tap at my local bars. This year, we decided that it was finally time to figure out which summer beers we should be buying for our barbecues and which we should not. Being the engineer that I am, I of course, took… Continue reading Drink This: Best Summer Brews

Drink This: Adult Fruit Smoothie

Since Memorial Day is the unofficial start of summer, it’s finally time to break out those fruity cocktails that everyone loves (even if you don’t want to admit it). While I love a good fruity cocktail, I am not a fan of overly sweet drinks. That is why I love this adult fruit smoothie recipe.… Continue reading Drink This: Adult Fruit Smoothie

Cinco de Mayo Cocktails: Spicy Pineapple Margarita

While I know a lot of people have issues with tequila, I am not one of them. In fact, it’s my favorite type of liquor. My favorite way to enjoy tequila is in a margarita, more specifically, spicy margarita. I had my first spicy margarita about a year and a half ago at Taqueria Feliz in… Continue reading Cinco de Mayo Cocktails: Spicy Pineapple Margarita

Kentucky Derby Cocktail: Mint Tea Julep

While I think mint juleps in cupcake form are delicious, my first experience with the cocktail wasn’t as pleasant. To be fair, it was my first time making it so maybe I just picked a bad recipe, but based on what I’ve heard from other people, I think it was probably pretty close to the… Continue reading Kentucky Derby Cocktail: Mint Tea Julep

Drink This: White Whiskey Lemonade

With last weekend’s summer-like weather, I was able to break out my patio furniture and fire up the grill for the first time this year. Nothing says summer like a fruity cocktail, so I decided this would be the perfect chance to try out my new Vodka Zinger drink infuser and the J. Potts White Whiskey I… Continue reading Drink This: White Whiskey Lemonade

Drink This: Red Sangria

I don’t know about you, but for me nothing is better on a hot summer day than a cold glass of sangria. I’ve been making sangria for a few years now, and I always get asked by my friends what I put in it. My secret is to keep it simple and let the fruit and… Continue reading Drink This: Red Sangria

Eat & Drink Here: Craftsmen Kitchen & Tap House

We ate at Craftsmen Kitchen & Tap House on the first Sunday of our Spring Break trip to Charleston & Savannah. We got there around 3:30pm for what we were calling a super late lunch. We had made reservations the night before just in case it would be crowded, but not all that surprisingly, not… Continue reading Eat & Drink Here: Craftsmen Kitchen & Tap House

Drink Here: Homegrown Brewhouse

We came across Homegrown Brewhouse while walking around Summerville, SC on the first day of our road trip. After a ten hour drive, a beer to relax sounded perfect and because Homegrown Brewhouse looked pretty cool inside. we decided to check it out. Our dad is really big on craft beers which usually had us leaning… Continue reading Drink Here: Homegrown Brewhouse

Drink Here: Manatawny Still Works

A few weeks ago a friend emailed me and said that the Philadelphia Chapter of the Society of Women Engineers was hosting a bottling event at the Manatawny Still Works in Pottstown, PA and asked me to come. It was clearly a no-brainer. I mean who wouldn’t want to help out with bottling liquor, plus get an… Continue reading Drink Here: Manatawny Still Works
