Peach Wine Slushies

White White Slushy @dessertfortwo

So, if you follow me on instagram (which you totally should because I share an inappropriate amount of photos of myself taking photos.  It’s ironic, no?  A tiny bit adorable?  Ok, NO.), you’ll know that I take Happy Hour very seriously.  I even capitalize the phrase ‘Happy Hour.’ There’s a set routine on Friday nights ’round [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Vodka Tonic Slush

Vodka tonic granita with lemon @dessertfortwo

I have a Costco membership for, like, 3 things: giant bottles of Tito’s vodka, family-sized packs of goat cheese that last me (and me alone) about a week, and perfect French baguettes.  I am loyal to their baguettes, though they may be a bit fatter than true French baguettes, because the ingredient list reads water, [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Lazy Girl Sangria

I feel like I’m the queen of lazy cocktails.  You can constantly find me using  jam  instead  of simple syrup for a quick-fix cocktail. Let’s back up before the lip-stick smudged glass, wine ring stains on my counter, and spent citrus segments all happened.  This drink was born from my laziest habit:  the last pours [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Sangria Swirled Frozen Margaritas

Happy Cinco de Drinko!  Err, Cinco de Mayo. I’m not allowed to make margaritas for my family any more.  Apparently, all you have to do to get taken off margarita duty is get grandma drunk one time.  Once! It’s a damn shame, too, because I happen to make the best frozen margaritas.  In college, I [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Jam Cocktails: Strawberry + Moonshine

Strawberry Jam Moonshine Cocktail | dessertfortwo.com

Now that I’ve publicly chugged whiskey right from the bottle (see this if you have no idea what I’m talking about), I feel like you and I can be a little looser with the whiskey ’round these parts.  Am I right?  Gosh, I hope so. Let’s shimmy our way from the aged whiskey to the [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Champagne Time!

Champagne Sundaes Dessert For Two

Today is the day I start singing ‘It’s the most wonderful time of the yeeeeeeeeear!’ You probably think I’m a bit late with that, but I love fresh starts, new beginnings, second chances, clean slates, do-overs, and all the things exactly like that!  The start of a new year refreshes and renews my goals in [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Peppermint Mocha Affogato

Peppermint-Mocha-Affogato

Ohhhh, this drink.  This drink is my latest obsession.  I made it for my very good friend Bev who is having twins.  Two babies!  Today, a bunch of bloggers are throwing her a virtual baby shower.  We wish we could all go to Bev’s house and touch her belly and pet her beautiful face, but instead, [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Boozy Pomegranate Cider

Pomegranate-Cider-5a

I whipped up this boozy cider on the first night it was acceptable to turn on the fire place. Wait, our fireplace has been on since September thanks to the fact that my husband accidentally paid the gas bill twice one month…one month, twelve months ago. And then, he continued to keep paying it, even [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Jam Cocktails: Fig + Rye Whiskey

Fig Jam Whiskey Cocktail | dessertfortwo.com

I’m here to help you streamline your cocktail routine on Fridays.  Your at-home mixology skills could use a shake-up. It’s Friday and you need a drink after work.  Stat.  But, you’ve had such a crazy week that making a batch of simple syrup isn’t in the cards.  I got ya covered.  Grab a jar of jam instead! Jams add sweetness [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Peach Chai Frozen Yogurt Shake

Peach Chai Froyo Shake DessertForTwo.com

Sometimes, I sneak dessert before dinner.*  I get home from work a few minutes before my husband.  This barely leaves me enough time to sneak a bite of sweet.  When I’m lucky, he waters the garden, gets the mail, and chats with the neighbors.  That gives me more time to indulge my sweet tooth. I [ Click to continue Reading! ]
