Cocktail Party

Toasted rounds of baguette topped with goat cheese and chopped pistachios with a dish of honey in the background.

Goat Cheese with Honey

This little ditty is simplicity itself. Drizzle fresh, creamy goat cheese with a little honey and behold the loveliness of sweet, sweet synergy.

A tall glass mug filled with Irish coffee with whipped cream on top and a tumbler or whiskey in the background.

Irish Coffee

A better way to start your day. Uh, we mean, end your day. That’s what we meant. Yes. End it. Ahem.

Sweet and spicy roasted nuts in a large green bowl on a wooden table.

Sweet and Spicy Roasted Nuts

These sweet and spicy nuts are addictive, so serve with care. The sweet comes from sugar, the spicy is the result of red pepper flakes. Use any kind of nut.

Two highball glasses filled with watermelon Moscow mule and topped with a mint sprig. A bowl of ice, watermelon and lime wedges on the side.

Watermelon Moscow Mule

If you’re a fan of the classic mule, made with vodka, ginger beer, and lime, then you’re gonna love the addition of fresh watermelon and mint to it.

Two short glasses of blueberry prosecco spritz on coasters with thyme sprigs for garnish.

Blueberry Prosecco Spritz

Want to know what we’re sipping all summer long? It’s this easy cocktail of fresh blueberries, lemon juice, simple syrup, sparkling wine, and soda.

A highball filled with a long margarita, ice, a lime wedge, and a dish of chili salt for rimming on the side

Long Margarita

A variation on our favorite Mexican cocktail, this long margarita includes tequila, Cointreau, and lime soda.

Three Champagne cocktails with a Champagne cork an a plate of sugar cubes beside the drinks.

Champagne Cocktail

The quintessential something to sip at an elegant soirée, a large party, or just because it’s a random Tuesday night.

A pile of ribbon fries on a white surface.

Homemade Ribbon Fries

These shatteringly crisp, undeniably sophisticated potato ruffles—chips, if you will—have no ridges. Nor do they need them. They’re intoxicatingly lovely just as they are.

A dozen hazelnut thyme matchsticks in a glass

Hazelnut Thyme Matchsticks

Hazelnut thyme matchsticks are thin, crisp crackers made with ground hazelnuts, cheese, and butter. The matchsticks are perfect with soup or as a snack.

A sidecar cocktail, ice cubes and a dried cherry garnish, in a highball glass with a sugared rim.

Sidecar Cocktail

Created during Prohibition, this collision of Cognac, orange liqueur, and lemon isn’t for the faint of heart—nor for the slight of tolerance.

No-bake snowballs on a counter

No-Bake Snowballs

Not all holiday sweets have to be loaded with sugar and fat. As delish as that is, you might crave something with a little healthy oomph.
