Setting The Mood At 65 Degrees

Many of you know that I just released my latest poetry book, Commissioned To Love. One of the book signings I hosted was at one of my favorite wine bars, Two Corks and a Bottle. Their ambiance is really relaxing and it was the perfect place to usher in the official release of my book. […]

Whistle & A White Cranberry Mimosa

I had a taste for some really good chicken and waffles this weekend. So, I searched my mental Rolodex (maybe I’m telling my age a bit there) of good places in Dallas that served it. Whistle Britches is the place I decided to go. I had only been there once before, but they have a […]

Watermelon Under The Cherry Moon

I get it. Fall is officially here and watermelon season is out the door. Give me pumpkin spice or nothing else! I know. However, today’s Thirsty Thursday is worth you putting down that pumpkin spiced latte for just a moment. I recently discovered the WTRMLN CHRRY drink at Target. I was looking for something I […]

Pappadeaux’s Captain On Deck

Pappadeaux is my favorite restaurant. Most people that know me well can easily tell you this. However, the last time I went I decided to try something new. I tasted their crawfish etouffee for the first time. In addition, I also ordered their Captain Hurricane. Hurricanes are some of my favorites drinks. So, I had […]

Look At The Bootstrap Manhattan

Last weekend, my wife and I saw the movie Annabelle: Creation at LOOK Cinema. If you’re into horror movies, I’d say it’s definitely worth seeing. We decided to grab a quick bite to eat in the theater’s Ivy Kitchen. I love trying new drinks. So, I decided to get the Bootstrap Manhattan. The key players […]

Be Cooler Than Most This Summer

Let’s face it. Everyone loves the summer, but we hate the heat. Well, I will speak for myself. I hate the heat. During the warmer months, it can be difficult to find refreshing drinks without a ton of sugar. However, Trader Joe’s has made sure that is not an issue this summer. Watermelon Cucumber Cooler […]

Jamba Greens ‘n Ginger Spice

Ah, ginger. Several of my previous Thirsty Thursday posts mention ginger as an ingredient. I recently acquired a taste for ginger a few months ago. The spicy flavor is delicious, not to mention the great health benefits it gives. I decided to stop by Jamba Juice over the weekend to try a new smoothie. Of […]

Remember To Drink Your Noon Greens

Green health drinks often scare people away. True, they are not the most appealing types of drink to look at. However, I would not steer you all wrong when it comes to the taste department. I love finding healthy new drinks. I am no different than the next person who still wants a great taste […]

In Love With The (Vita) CoCo

I am 2 months sober and counting. Yep. Oh, did you think I was talking about alcohol? I meant pre work out drinks. I completed the Daniel Fast earlier this year. The fast (or temporary diet) consists of vegetables, fruit, legumes, grains and that’s about it. The first 3 days kicked my butt, especially because […]

The Sweet Punch Of The Ida Claire Hurricane

All hurricanes are not created equally. The original hurricane drink was crafted in New Orleans. This is one drink where the taste depends on who makes it. Last month I got a chance to try out Ida Claire’s version of this signature drink. Be sure to check out my review of the Pearfect 75 I […]
