Frozen Sangria

Frozen Sangria

This post is sponsored by Master of Mixes.

It’s summertime and it’s hot y’all. Sangria is something that just screams summertime to me. It’s incredibly easy to put together, makes enough to serve a group of friends and it can be made using red or white wine plus a variety of fruits. If you’ve been around my little corner of the web for any length of time you know how much I appreciate options. Sangria can also be made into a frozen treat instead of just chilled. Yes, even more refreshing, you don’t even have to sing “Let it Go”. You seriously won’t want to let this one go

Pina Colada Sorbet

Pina Colada Sorbet Pina Colada Sorbet. Sounds good right?

I’m having all the pineapple feels right now. Have you seen the PINEAPPLE GRANITAS we shared a little while back yet? They’re pretty awesome. Like 3 ingredient awesome. That’s right THREE ingredients. They’re light, refreshing and perfect all summer long. What’s even better than that you ask? Turning them into Pina Colada Sorbet with just a few additional ingredients, including rum, because you can’t have a pina colada without rum can ya. Y’all thought I was going to say bourbon didn’t you? It’s understandable, but you know you need rum for Pina Coladas. Paper umbrellas are optional. Also optional is singing “If you like Pina Coladas”. It was stuck in my head so it’s only fair it’s stuck in your head now as well. I’m a giver, what can I say. I don’t however like getting caught in the rain, especially if I’m on my motorcycle. That hurts y’all.

Bourbon Roasted Cherries

Bourbon Roasted Cherries Bourbon Roasted Cherries. Hello lovah. I’m going to go ahead and implore you to double this recipe because for one you’ll already have the oven on so you might as well roast more. Second, you’re going to be eating these with a spoon, or if you’re even remotely like me, you might just pluck them out of the jar and pop them right into your mouth. They’re borderline addictive. I’m okay with that.

Roasted Cherry Bourbon Ice Cream

Roasted Cherry Bourbon Ice Cream Roasted Cherry Bourbon Ice Cream.

Ice cream is my jam y’all. Specifically homemade ice cream. I give my little Cuisinart ice cream maker a workout all year long but especially in the summer time. I make my ice cream the way my Momma taught me. Custard based. It’s all that and a bag of chips. From her base vanilla ice cream recipe the flavor options are limitless. I’ve made at least a dozen variations here on the blog. Everything from your basic chocolate to a Sweet Corn Ice Cream with Blueberry Balsamic Sauce. Something for erryone to throw in a waffle cone and go to town on.

Mexican Street Corn

Mexican Street Corn This post is sponsored by ALDI. Opinions are my own. Always have been. Always will be.

We recently shared our ALDI inspired DINNER PARTY where our guests noshed on a Mexican-themed dinner with drinks. TACOS AL PASTOR  was the star of our menu. Everyone loved the tacos but they also couldn’t get enough of one of the side dishes, Mexican inspired street corn. It’s corn on the cob that’s slathered with a creamy chili and lime-based sauce and then sprinkled with cheese. It’s simply amazing and the best part is that it’s incredibly simple to make with the help of a little shortcut.
