Get Your 4th Of July Party Twisted With Twisted Shotz


I’m sure you’ll all remember how much I fell in love with Twisted Shotz earlier this year.  Twisted Shotz offers bar quality drinks that you can enjoy at home for the most epic party you’re friends will never forget.  Each shot is grab and go making it easy to get the party started no matter where you are.


Twisted Shotz has all new flavors and pack options so I was SUPER excited to try them out.  I loved all of the flavors I had tried so far but these ones sounded more delicious than ever.


The Twisted Shotz Getaway Party Pack was the PERFECT addition to my weekend camping trip on the lake.  We stayed on the beach at Princess Cove for a couple days with family and friends, and Twisted Shotz were a HUGE hit!  The Twisted Shotz Getaway Party Pack includes:

  • Moscow Mule Kick (3)
  • Miami Vice (3)
  • Whipped Chocolate (3)
  • Pussy Cat (3)
  • Peaches And Cream (3)

I wish I could tell you which one was my favorite flavor, but they were all so delicious it would be just impossible to pick one.


Moscow Mule Kick is one of the flavors that I hadn’t tried yet but it sounded pretty interesting.  I like lime but I’m typically not a huge ginger fan.  These shots had just the right balance of flavors and were very palate pleasing.  The mix of Lime and Ginger Liquor is the perfect balance for a shot that can’t resist.


Miami Vice is a tasty little treat that will leave you wondering how Twisted Shotz managed to fit the essence of Miami in such a tiny little shot glass.  The flavors of Pina Colada and Strawberry Daiquiri mix on your tongue in a way that’s so sweet you can’t help but reach for another.


Whipped Chocolate was my absolute favorite of all the flavors.  This sweet shot is a combination of whipped cream vodka and chocolate liqueur that will have you whipped in no time.  If you’re a chocoholic like me, this is a shot that you’ll love…it’s like dessert in a glass!


Pussy Cat is the newest flavor to join the Twisted Shotz family and I have to say it’s absolutely incredible.  Watermelon vodka and pina colada liqueur make one of the best flavor combinations I’ve probably ever come across.


Peaches and Cream was another new one I hadn’t tried but I’m so glad it was included in the Getaway Party Pack.  Sitting pretty along side a vanilla cream vodka, peach schnapps has never paired so well.  And if you think they’re pretty in the glass, just wait until they meet in your mouth!  Talk about a match made in heaven!

This 4th of July is the perfect time to add Twisted Shotz to your party, but remember, Twisted Shotz are for those 21 and older only…consume responsibly.

Make Your #ValentinesDay Dinner Extra Special With Kobrand


Whether you’re shopping for someone who’s difficult to shop for or even just a great wine to pair with your special Valentine’s Day meal, Kobrand has great options that are affordable on any budget.  Since 1944 Kobrand has offered quality products that everyone loves.


What I absolutely love about Kobrand is that the wines are super affordable and taste great.  All four of these wines are under $25 but will taste like you spent a lot more!


Say hello to Medici Ermete Concerto Reggiano Lambrusco 2015, the world’s first single vineyard vintage Lambrusco.  It’s a wonderful sparking dry red wine that has lively bubbles achieved through natural fermentation.  The vines are grown in clay soil and have a taste that’s an out-of-this-world experience.  You can pair Concerto with a wide variety of foods so it’s easy to enjoy with your favorite meal.  Grilled chicken, lamb, steak and pasta are all great choices when having a glass of Concerto.  This wine has hints of strawberry, raspberry, and cherry for a dry, yet fruity glass of perfectly balanced wine.


Medici Ermete Solo Reggiano 2015 is another fabulous sparkling dry red wine that uses natural fermentation to get it’s lovely bubbles.  This beautiful blend is made of 51% Ancellota and 49% Lambrusco Salamino.   The classic red fruit aromas are almost impossible to resist!  Enjoy with charcuterie, mortadella or a variety of pasta dishes such as tortellini, tagliatelle with meat sauce or tortelli stuffed with pumpkin and spices.


Medici Ermete I Quercioli Secco Reggiano Lambrusco is a bright, ruby red sparking dry wine that has a distinct violet scent that will pull you in.  The bubbles are dry yet fruity, and full of harmonioius flavors and lively effervescence.  I Quercioli Secco Reggiano is best when paired with grilled or cured meats and a variety of pasta dishes and cheeses.


Last, but certainly not least, I was also given the opportunity to try out Medici Ermete I Quercioli Dolce Reggiano Lambrusco.   This wine is a blend of Lambrusco Salamino and Lambrusco Marani, and the combination couldn’t be more perfect.  This was my favorite of the 4, it’s got such a sweet, fresh flavor!  This makes an excellent Valentine’s Day wine as it pairs excellently with fruit, dessert, and pizza.

Make your Valentine’s Day dinner extra special with a bottle of fabulous wine from Kobrand.

Delightful Wines Selected Just For You, Shipped Direct To Your Door With Winc


In the busy world we live in, subscription boxes have become a booming industry.  If you need/want something on a recurring basis, there’s probably a subscription box for it.  Say hello to Winc, the world’s only personalized wine club.  When you first sign up with Winc, you’ll take a short 5 question quiz so Winc can help pair you with the wines that you’ll enjoy most without the headache of ending up with wine you won’t drink.  Each month Winc will make new recommendations for you based on your palate profile.  You can either choose to go with the Winc recommendations, or make your own selections from the ever-changing assortment of delicious and delectable wines.


I received a FABULOUS selection of wines, and I did choose to go with the Winc recommendations since I’m far from a wine expert.  2 red and 2 whites sounded absolutely perfect to me!


Alma Libre is a 2014 red blend that displays noticeable influences from the distinctly different climates of these Chilean regions.  This wine beautifully blends the green, herbaceous Cabernet Francs characteristic of Colguaga with the lean, bright Carmenres and softly fruity Merlots that come from Casablanca Valley’s cooler temperatures.  The grapes are hand-picked and aged in oak for four months for a smooth, easy drinking beverage.  You’ll love this Chilean firecracker if you like hotter dishes like I do, but stay away from spicier foods when you’ve got a glass of Alma Libre in hand.  It pairs great with lamb or tapas!


One From The Quiver is a delicious red wine that you can’t get enough of.  This tasty bottle of wine is Brian Smith’s (winemaker and Winc Chief Wine Officer) love letter to Argentina.  One From The Quiver is focused on balance, sourcing the best fruit available and picking it at the optimal time.  The end result is a beautiful Malbec that brilliantly showcases Argentina’s most popular varietal as well as it’s most prolific winemaking region, Mendoza.  You’ve got authentic Argentina in a bottle with One From The Quiver.  Sweet spice and sunbaked earth on the nost with cherry on the palate make a perfect pairing for all of your meat dishes.  Enjoy this tasty Malbec with burgers, BBQ, pork or ribs.


This Wonderful Wine White Blend is a thing to be treasured!  This white blend is a must for just about any occasion!  The juicy flavors of lychee candy, banana, and white peach definitely don’t disappoint.  This carefully crafted blend has a medium body and pretty finish that pairs well with salad or shrimp…or heck, just enjoy it without a meal and have a fun get-together with all of your besties.


Last, but certainly not least, I also received this bottle of Passarola Vinho Branco.  Portugal is one of Europe’s oldest nations and the world’s largest exporter of corks.  It’s also home to over 250 indigenous varietals.  Somehow, their wines have flown under the radar until pretty recently.  This Passarola Vinho Branco is bottled proof that Portuguese wines deliver unmatched bang for the buck.  Passarola combines two native grapes that are just bursting with flavorful notes of white peach, grapefruit, and lemon.  This Passarola is absolutely a superstar when paired with a great seafood dish.

This Valentine’s Day, feature some of the delicious wines from Winc, or even surprise a wine-lover with a subscription!  You can’t go wrong with a delicious gift like Winc.

6 cinnamon sticks
1 teaspoon whole cloves
½ teaspoon whole allspice berries
2 whole nutmeg, quartered
3 cups apple cider
½ gallon cranberry juice
1 (750 ml) bottle Everclear®


  1. Roughly chop cranberries, combine with Everclear® in a large, sealable container.
  2. Steep one week in the refrigerator.
  3. Once steeped, combine cranberry juice, cider and spices in a large pot. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 15 minutes.

Now THIS is my new favorite way to celebrate the holiday season.  The Ezra Brooks brand, which dates back to 1957 has been a part of Luxco’s portfolio since 1993.  This year Ezra Brooks introduced their seasonal Bourbon Cream and oh my goodness is it delicious!!  This new addition to the family has a buttery, caramel and toffee flavor with just a hint of nutmeg and cinnamon.  I am not typically the biggest bourbon fan but I could sip this stuff all day long, seriously!
