Pomegranate Honey Coolers

Celebrate Rosh Hashanah with this easy white wine-based cocktail, which is made with two ingredients traditionally served on the Jewish New Year. It has a healthy dose of pomegranate juice — which comes from the many seeds that represent a fruitful year — and a taste of honey, a symbol of the wish for sweetness in the days to come.

Frosty Patriotic Punch

What could be more cute than a layered punch on the 4th of July? These are really simple to make, look adorable and taste great!

The key to making this recipe work is to look at the sugar content on each item you are pouring! You want to go from the highest sugar content on the bottom, to the least sugar on the top in order to keep the layers separate!

When you pour each layer, be sure to pour very slowly over an ice cube or over the back of a spoon. The slower you can pour, the better.

It’s best if these are made just before serving! The layers will stay separated for a bit however the ice will begin to melt.

The Original Hurricane

This year do yourself a favor and sample the original version of this classic New Orleans cocktail. A true hurricane does not contain grenadine, pineapple juice, or vodka. It is not made from a mix. It is not served in a giant plastic cup. The original hurricane had three ingredients: dark rum, passion fruit syrup, and lemon juice. That’s it.
