C O C O N U T mimosas

Let’s be serious, one can not live on frosé all summer long (debatable, I know). But this, my friends, is the coconut mimosa. And it’s coming for your summer. Besides popping the bubbly, it is the easiest, most refreshing addition to your poolside booze fest.  Now, if you’ve read my past post about coconuts you […]

Superfood Series: c o c o n u t s

If you can’t tell by previous blog posts of mine, I am a huge fan of coconuts. Coconut oil, coconut water and milk, raw coconut, any form of this tropical little angel is great. They get a bad rep sometimes due to their high fat content, but what a lot of people do not know […]

Champagne Margaritas
