Lately I've been enjoying some Jordan's Skinny Syrups in my diet Sprite with a splash of rum or vodka to unwind, but I really like to play with different carbonated waters. New flavors are constantly being released and I'm always eager to try a new one.

Now that it's 2020, celebrating a new decade as a reprise of the roaring twenties is all the rage. While that really doesn't bode well in some respects, it's fun to revisit the drinks of yesteryear and either make them as they were or try new twists on everything from the Old Fashioned to the Bee's Knees.
Fellow drinkers, you have less than two days to finalize your plans for New Year's Eve, which includes your choice of bubbly or other spirits to get into the New Year's spirit! Depending on what you already have going on, you may not even need to make new plans: many restaurants and venues are providing a toast complete with champagne. But if you plan on celebrating at home or with company in another home, you might want to get creative and get your bottles today.
The joke is that it's always five o'clock somewhere, and drinking with breakfast--or at least brunch--is in fashion, especially if it incorporates juice and is suddenly a breakfast drink. Mimosas, screwdrivers and bloody marys have never gone out of style, but now people are actually putting their booze IN their breakfast food.
As a person who loves flavor but is trying to limit my sugar, I gotta say, living in 2019 is hard. There's temptation everywhere, and for every sugar-free alternative that is released, there are probably 500 sugary products to make you drool right behind it. Case in point: Stroopwafel Stout.
While the month of December is cold enough to warrant a plethora of hot drinks in your home, I can't help but advocate for some ice-cold minty and chocolatey beverages as your Poison of Choice throughout the winter holidays. I love a hot drink, but what can I say? There's something wintry and Christmasy about cold, minty freshness, especially when combined with chocolate. A spiked hot cocoa with mint over ice? Perfect.
Whether you follow the legend of Kore or Persephone (who are essentially the same person but with vastly different stories, depending on which one you think is most accurate!), you can't deny that pomegranates are a lovely symbol of this time of year. Why not celebrate your darkness and surviving Hades on Earth with a pomegranate cocktail or two before Mecury goes into Retrogade?
It may not be fall, y'all, but it sure will be in a couple of weeks, and I'm so ready for the apples, cinnamon and everything cozy. How about you? It's time to start planning those September drink menus for parties, cozy evenings around the firepit or nightcaps during the weekend.
Okay, I get that it's too early for Halloween for a lot of people. In my house, September is pretty much Halloween Eve, the entire month of October is Halloween and we wear a different costume every day. So if you're not into the theme, it's okay, these are great drinks for any time--just know that I definitely have these in mind for October entertaining!
