Easy Summer Cocktail Recipe: Strawberry Rhubarb Fizz

This easy summer cocktail recipe has been sponsored by Prairie Organic Spirits but all opinions expressed here are my own.

Let Club W Help You Find the Right Wine! #sponsored

This post on how to find the right wine is sponsored by Club W but all opinions expressed are my own.I cannot tell you how many times I have come home from the store with a bottle of wine that I just don't care for.  I have tried a lot of different ways to help find the right wine.  I have chosen wines based on the picture on the front of the bottle, the price, the region it was grown and (of course) the type of wine it is.  None of these are fool proof ways to find the right wine and I am often left with a bottle of wine that I really … [Read more...]

This Mothers Day Drink Recipe is sponsored by a sample from Broken Shed Vodka but all opinions expressed are my own.Yesterday my husband and I were chatting and I reminded him to get a card for his mom for Mothers Day.  He looked at me with a sort of deer in the headlights look for a moment and asked "Mothers Day is next week?"  Yes, dear husband, Mothers Day is coming  up in just a few short days!  So, of course his next question is "Is there anything special you WANT for Mothers Day?"  Good thing for him I am an easy mom to please on … [Read more...]
