Valentine’s Day Cocktail: Strawberry Rosé Sangria

Whether you are having your girlfriends over for a pink galentine’s party or you are wanting to make some special sips for your sweetie on February 14th, this super easy Strawberry Rosé Sangria is the perfect choice! My sangria recipe took a couple of turns from what I had originally planned because I sent my husband to the store for my ingredients! Although he came back with Rossi (sparkling wine) instead of rosé, I think that the end result may be tastier than the original!


NBA Finals Cocktail: The Sangrialier

The inevitable has finally happened with the Cleveland Cavaliers going against the Golden Sate Warriors in the 2017 NBA Finals. Whether you are hedging your bets on the the reigning champs, the Cleveland Cavaliers, or you are a die hard Golden State fan, one thing you have in common is that you are going to need a few stiff drinks to get through what is sure to be a nail biting, buzzer beating, showdown between the two. To help you through the next week or two I am sharing a few cocktail and mocktail (for those like me who can’t indulge) recipes that are NBA Finals themed and they will not disappoint!


NBA Playoffs Cocktail: The Tropical Blastoff

The NBA playoffs are heating up! We are in the first round and already there have been heart-breaks, surprise finishes, and fines issued for squabbles with fans. For today’s NBA playoffs inspired cocktail I wanted to offer up something that included a few of my favorite cocktail elements, rum + pineapple= slam dunk in the Sideline Socialite playbook. Check out this super easy recipe, and my nod to the Rockets “the tropical blastoff”!


Game Day Recipe: Chipotle Bacon Bloody Mary

Pardon me while I veer away from what should be a Christmas post to share with you this delicious recipe for a Chipotle Bacon Bloody Mary that will knock your socks off! I guess the photos in the post do have hints of red and green…and it is called a Mary, which is Jesus’ mothers name so maybe this is a Christmas post after all!


Game Day Cocktail: The Red Rowdy

This time of year for a sports lover is kind of intense, even more so if you are involved with a sports lover. Not only do you have football games to contend with but now you have basketball games coming in hot too. I thought it was a fitting time to introduce another cocktail recipe in honor of this overlapping period because you might need it if your man is going back and forth from the NFL to the NBA throughout the week!
