Traditionally, the Bloody Mary is made with vodka, tomato juice, Tabasco sauce, Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice and garnished with a lime; all served in a tall glass. This cocktail has come a…

Has “Mad Men” Brought Back the Romance of the Cocktail?

By Audrey van Petegem, Senior Editor

If you are a fan of the Mad  Men show, then you know that the era’s drink of choice was the cocktail – and not just one… Set in the 60′s in NYC, the era romanticized the Rat Pack’s image of a bottomless drink and a smoke, a vice for each hand.

Forget about the…

Girls' Night Out Gone Wrong

This past weekend, some girlfriends and I had organized a fun night out in downtown Chicago.  No husbands, no kids, just us girls kickin' it in the city.  Unfortunately, though, our whole night was planned around a godforsaken musical that we'd bought tickets to see on LivingSocial.  It was called, "Girls Night: The Musical" and promised to be a super fun mix of…

Jolly Juice

The other day I sent out a tweet that could quite possibly be misconstrued as naughty by nature -- I said something to the effect of "My husband's Jolly Juice is a-flowing".  Now many of you may have thought that this was some sort of sexual reference (cause let's be honest, usually it is), but surprisingly, this time, it was actually a very innocent comment referring to a new cocktail recipe that I found recently and somehow persuaded my husband to whip up for our friends and…

For A Spirited Valentine's Day - DIY Blackberry Infused Vodka

At the end of the summer, I sent two of my sons and our moose sized dog Dutch, down the lane to pick blackberries.  An hour later they returned, almost empty handed, with just a pitiful pile of berries tumbling around the bottom of their bowl. I had envisioned an overflowing bounty upon their return and was confused.  “Uhmm, we found out that Dutch likes blackberries too!” they exclaimed with purple stained smiles and ran through the house on to their next adventure.

Clean…

If Only I Had The Nerve - What Sport Would You Have Played?

I am so inspired by my daughters desire, and actual action, of playing Volleyball this year. I've spent so many years on the sidelines, wishing that I had the nerve to get out there and play. Most of my life I've had severe anxiety and couldn't make myself take that first step. But, if I had the nerve, I would have loved to be a…
