Yesterday, I had an incurable NEED for a Starbucks Frappuccino. But, since Iâ€™m trying to eat healthier lately after a little, oh, overindulgence, I decided to try to replicate it at home with some different ingredients. It turned out better than I imagined! Now Iâ€™m going to be craving these everyday!

If kumquats are out of season by the time you have a go at this, substitute them with some other fruit. If itâ€™s summer, peaches and melons and grapes work marvelously. Oh, summer. Weâ€™ve got a ways to go before we get to you.

I could either sink further into my pit of bitterness or I could pretend that I had an influence on the changing of the seasons. For my sanity, I went with the latter approach. Out came the cocktail shaker and in went ingredients that make me think of warm weather.

While Iâ€™m sure weâ€™ve all heard of Martiniâ€™s, â€œshaken, not stirredâ€ thanks to James Bond, you may not have heard of a French Martini. A French Martini is a deliciously tart and sweet combination of fresh pineapple juice, Vodka and Chambord.

Having traveled quite a bit to Europe, I have picked up a few habits along the way (I would say that most of them have been of the good kind). One of my favorites, that I wish would become more popular here in America, is the tradition of the the digestif (or after dinner drink).

The Black Rose has the fruit and herb flavor that will help you ring in this beautiful Spring weather! The flavored syrup tastes great without vodka, if you're looking for a non-alcoholic treat.

Our Spring feast begins with a martini, shaken, not stirred. A combination of early spring rhubarb, vodka, and lemon-infused pellegrino.

We went strawberry picking again, and had another 10 lbs. of berries to use. I started making strawberry mojitos that night, and was addicted to them for a short while. I made non-acoholic versions and drank them with breakfast.

If youâ€™re in the mood for a creamy rich cocktail, the best of the line is the flavorful Brandy Alexander. Just remember, milk doesnâ€™t exactly make the best substitute for cream, so itâ€™s just better to drink fewer, tastier drinks rather than attempt to count calories.

Authentic bellinis are made with white peaches and Prosecco, but many people associate the name with any drink made up of fruit purÃ©e and sparkling wine. I decided to make both strawberry and peach bellinis for this virtual shower, but you can use almost any fruit you want. I think mangoes and blackberries would also make wonderful bases for the drink.

As for our diet, the most important thing we've done is put our juicer back to work. I'm not sure why I've neglected it for so long, as having a glass of fresh juice every morning is the best possible way to start a day.

When I saw this recipe, I immediately knew I had to make it. It was a simple recipe which I happened to have all of the ingredients for, score! This slushie was exactly like any other matcha green tea slushie you'd get from a tea house!

To be honest, itâ€™s really like a fancy mimosa. But when I say fancy, I mean itâ€™s so, so much better. And prettier. And larger.

Oh, wait. Pinch me, because I might already be there. But I donâ€™t want to leave anybody out, so Iâ€™m sharing this tropical smoothie so you can feel like youâ€™re in the tropics enjoying Spring Break with me.

I had a half bag of raspberries in my freezer (still trying to figure out what I used the other half of the bag for?) and I also had a few fresh lemons that probably only had a day or two left in them. So this morning I thought Iâ€™d see what I could come up with to use these items up. I also added a little mint liqueur to this cocktail for a different twist but you could certainly leave it out or if you have fresh mint that would be even better! Unfortunately, I did not have any fresh mint on hand and dragging the kids to the store to get some just didnâ€™t seem all that appealing to me.

They were A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! Deliciously fresh in flavor, well balanced, and strong! Who knew I had to travel all the way to Viá»‡t Nam to have the BEST Mai Tai of my life!

When it comes to cocktails, we are margarita people. You know itâ€™s the weekend when you walk into our kitchen and see the small mountain of juiced lime halves on the counter.

Did I succeed in making it taste like a true cake batter shake? Tell me the truth; if I didnâ€™t, Iâ€™ll be happy to keep tweaking the recipe. Edible experiments are always fun!

Iâ€™m no stranger to a good homemade cordial. Jâ€™adore the mix of instant and delayed gratification from the infusing process.

I won't be wearing green today (although I have always said my green eyes count!) but I will share some of my favorite Green Recipes! Let's start with my go to Green smoothie. This is a definite health beverage that I have developed a taste for.

No, it is not a "Marguerita" nor an alcoholic beverage. And those crystals are not salt!

I like my drinks to be tart, so this lemontini is right up my alley. The rosemary adds a little extra something that takes this libation over the top.

So, let me tell you a bit about Grasshoppers. I donâ€™t know that this is truly an Irish dessert, but at most occasions within our family, Grasshoppers are somewhere to be found.

My Spring Forward Smoothie will spring you into a state of frosty, dreamy, sunny day bliss. Bright peaches, sweet strawberries, silky soy and creamy frozen bananas give this smoothie it's own healthy glow.
March 18, 2011
Let me tell you about the best Margarita you will ever taste. I will be fresh and salty, with hints of lime and orange and lots of other things you wouldnâ€™t normally think of adding to Margarita.

These drinks are so fruity and refreshing. Theyâ€™re very much summer in a glass, which is a nice break from this dreary March! Theyâ€™re the kind of cocktails that you can sip down way too easily â€“ aka, the best kind.

Blueberry Mint Lemonade is seriously so easy to make and it really is such a nice treat! Strolling through the farmers markets here in LA, you can tell that Spring is desperately trying to show up!
March 15, 2011
t was a smoothie kind of day. But not just any old smoothie kind of day.

Today is a day for celebration! Why you ask? Well, this margarita is the very first cocktail ever to grace the pages of The Cilantropist.

Chai, made from an array of such flavors, seems a perfect celebration of the abundance of locally-grown Balinese spices. I have always been a fan of chai, but the Starbucksification of the drink has turned me off. Some buddies and I recently had the chance to cook with a very cool, smart, young Ayurvedic doctor and she taught us how to make Chai from scratch.
