I love the rooftop garden this time of year even though the tomatoes are almost done. 😢 I need to commit some tomatocide this weekend to clear out the dead stuff. ❤️🌱❤️🌱❤️

The first time I heard of CBD was at work when we started selling it on @BarkShop for pups with anxiety, arthritis, nausea, etc. I've given it to @PimmPup a few times when she got stressed out but I didn't try it myself until the folks at @auroraelixir sent me a few bottles to mix in cocktails.
.
The main thing to know about CBD is that it's not psychoactive and it will not get you high. Plus, it's legal almost everywhere and the country's rapidly-growing cannabis market is a fascinating thing to watch. (At least from my dog-centric vantage point so far. :P)
.
Each hemp elixir from @AuroraElixir contains 15 mg CBD derived from certified organic hemp, pure organic cane sugar, quinine, natural flavors, and natural emulsifiers. The two flavors profiles highlight the unique aromatics found in hemp and cannabis for a balanced and restorative, slightly effervescent tonic. I wanted to make sure I got to taste the flavor of the tonic so I made a simple G&T with the Lavender Aurora Elixir. The CBD G&T was subtle in both flavor and the feeling I got from the CBD. To me it just felt a little relaxing like the first few sips of a good cocktail during happy hour.
.
I actually think one of my coworkers said it best when we did an internal survey on how our pups liked the CBD on BarkShop:
.
"If a human takes the dosage of a 200lb dog, I'm not saying they'll have a good time, *but I'm not saying they'll have a bad time either.*"
.
🌟Aurora Elixir G&T🌟
▫️2oz gin
▫️Squeeze of lime
▫️5+oz Aurora Elixir Lavender Spice
(The glass is from @agedandore!)

Been playing around with the clear ice maker from @truecubes and it’s been a lot of fun. My sister-in-law would be making fun of me right now because I once told her that the clear ice cube startup she was ridiculing was a totally reasonable business... but the drinks just feel so precious! (Hey Claire 😜)
.
Also I realized most of my most recent cocktails have used milkweed... but don’t worry, pretty soon I’ll be switching to exclusively cocktails with ground cherries. 🙌 🎃🙃

✨Milkweed Tom Collins ✨
▫️2oz gin
▫️1oz lemon juice
▫️.75oz milkweed syrup
▫️Soda water to top

In the last few years since I’ve gotten super deep in the cocktail world, there have only been a few moments when Sean’s gotten more excited than me about something cocktail related. One of those moments happened when Sean read about Dave Arnold’s carbonated cocktails. We bought a gigantic Co2 tank and all the accoutrements necessary to make carbonated water and cocktails. It’s really fun to use the carbonation tank but it’s a bit of a process and many times I don’t feel like carbonating water because it's a lot of work.
.
Recently the folks at @SodastreamUSA reached out to see if I was interested in trying the new SodaStream Fizzi One Touch. Sean was hesitant because there is not much counter space left in our NYC apartment... But I was curious to see if it was a lot easier to carbonate water and drinks.
.
The verdict? IT’S SO MUCH EASIER. It takes like 10 seconds and the water is even bubblier than when we worked *really* hard with our old process and fluffed the water 6 times. Sean even said, "I really like the Sodastream. Maybe we can find a way to refill the Sodastream tank with the big tank?"
.
There are 3 settings so you can choose how bubbly you'd like your water and the bubbliest setting is SUPER carbonated. It's so bubbly that the drink doesn't get diluted when I add a bit of my tonic syrup + gin in a glass and pour Sodastream water on top to make a G&T. One other awesome thing is I don't have to lug home cans of seltzer anymore. You can make your own LaCroix with a Sodastream and a few dashes of bitters. (I love @bittercube and Fee Brother's bitters in water.) :) #sponsored
.
✨Milkweed G&T✨
▫️.25oz homemade milkweed cordial
▫️.5oz tonic syrup
▫️2oz gin
▫️3oz cold, carbonated water from the @sodastreamUSA

6 years ago this week I moved to NYC. The first weekend we had here we went to the Governor’s Island Jazz Age Lawn Party And yesterday I went back. 🍾💫💃🏻 I couldn’t justify buying the cocktails 6 years ago so it’s good to be back to redo that part of the experience. 😂
.
Yesterday I was drinking the Hard-To-Get Gertie cocktail and recreated it today with gin and Aperol so Sean could try it. :)
.
✨ Hard-To-Get Gertie ✨
▫️1.5oz goin
▫️.75 oz @aperolusa
▫️.75 oz lemon juice
▫️Top with grapefruit soda
▫️Garnish with cucumber
.
Add all ingredients except soda and shake with ice. Strain and serve over ice, too with grapefruit soda!

I foraged mulberries at the beginning of the summer and completely forgot to post this cocktail! The good thing is that this recipe will work with any berries you've got around at the moment. Gooseberries, ground cherries, or grapes would all work well with this drink. :)
.
I usually try to be really stealthy when I'm foraging for things or picking berries because most people think it's weird and gross, but while I was picking these berries I had a man come up to me and ask me what I was doing. He said he only sees old ladies picking these berries and was very curious about what they tasted like. He tried one and liked it! (I think? :P)
.
🍇Mulberry Cobbler🍇
▫️10 ripe mulberries, plus extra for garnish
▫️1 ounce fresh lemon juice
▫️1 ounce mulberry simple syrup
▫️2oz gin
▫️1 dash @bittercube cherry bark vanilla
▫️Splash of sparkling wine .
Muddle the mulberries with your simple syrup, gin, and lemon juice. Add ice and shake. Strain into a julep glass.
.
To make the simple syrup, add 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water to a small saucepan. Add 1/2 cup of muddled berries to the mixture and cook until the sugar is dissolved. Let it cool, strain out the solids, and keep your syrup in the fridge for up to a month!

My favorite milkweed cocktail of all: the milkweed margarita. I swear it works with every spirit but it seems to like tequila the best. <3 Most of the milkweed flowers have gone to seed but my friend texted me this weekend to say she found some stragglers in a field. There is hope! :)

🔸2oz tequila
🔸1oz fresh lime juice
🔸.75-1oz milkweed syrup

I’ve spent the week obsessing over @66squarefeet’s new book “Forage, Harvest, Feast” and my mind is overwhelmed with all he new edible possibilities. I’be been following Marie’s blog for a while now and loooved her first book, but “Forage, Harvest, Feast” is a resource with so much depth- I know I’ll be using it for years. The book is encyclopedic with Marie’s insane knowledge of wild edibles and the recipes range from cured meats to cocktails. If you are someone who loves the hunt of foraging for edible things, this book is now at the top of my recommendation list. I already got one friend at work to preorder! 😂
.
This morning after the rain I went out to snag some ingredients- I picked up some milkweed pods, sumac, and sassafras. ❤️❤️❤️🌱🍃

Gahhhh I can't get enough cocktails with milkweed this summer and I'm starting to get hoard-y about the milkweed syrup I made earlier this summer. :P While I’m bummed there are no longer milkweed flowers to forage, I’m hoping this weekend I can get to Harriman State Park to check out the wild blueberries. 🍃
.
I made this milkweed cocktail using a hand-blown glass with integrated measuring from @agedandore. The design process on this glass is top notch and they just started shipping out glasses as a result of their successful @kickstarter! I really love how the large ice ball fits perfectly and melts slowly. .
I also used the Jamaican No. 1 bitters from @bittercube with flavors of intense ginger, allspice, clove and black pepper. It was a really unique combo with whiskey and milkweed. The folks at @bittercube have a unique tiki-friendly range of bitters and I'm excited to share more of them over the next few weeks! :)
.
🦋Butterfly Flower Sour 🦋
🔸1.5oz whiskey 🔸.5oz milkweed syrup (you can also use regular simple syrup or make some with rose!) 🔸.25 oz dry vermouth
🔸.75oz fresh lemon juice
🔸3 dashes @bittercube Jamaican No. 1 bitters
.
Add all ingredients and shake with ice. Strain and serve over ice in the @agedandore glass! .

Balcony garden in full swing! Next year I’ll definitely grow more zinnias and maybe only one variety of tomatoes- the indigo rose. They taste so sweet like a pop of summer in your mouth! I’m trying to take as many photos as I can because come winter I’ll never believe the garden looked so good. ❤️ .

I’m trying to take as many photos as I can because come winter I’ll never believe the garden looked so good. ❤️ . . . #jungalowstyle  #plantsmakepeoplehappy  #plantlady  #abmplantlady  #abmhappylife  #abmlifeiscolorful  #abmathome  #bhg  #betterhomesandgardens  #Crazyplantlady  #plants  #plantlove  #gardening  #urbangarden  #nycgarden  #urbanjunglebloggers  #housebeautiful  #hgtv  #instagarden  #wildnewyork  #gardenlife  #garden  #urbangardening  #mygarden  #gardens  #springgarden  #growsomethinggreen 
This is a #sponsored post written by me on behalf of Riondo Prosecco. <3
.
Ever since Sean and I came back from Italy in February, cocktails in the spritz family have been our go-to drinks. They’re so simple, light, not too sweet, and the perfect thing to drink anytime– with an over-the-top brunch or as an early evening ritual. The formula is so simple. You take a liqueur or an amaro (I prefer a bit bitter), add some soda, a garnish, some ice, and top with a sparkling wine. Because I discovered my love for spritzes in Italy, I usually go for a Prosecco with an approachable price point like Riondo Prosecco to add bubbles to my cocktails. (And Riondo’s screw top is nice so you don’t have to drink the whole bottle in one sitting! :P) .
Now that we’re in that part of summer where it feels like it’s too hot to move your pinky finger, the effortless spritz is more appealing than ever. For my most recent spritz variation featuring Riondo Prosecco, I wanted to take advantage of summer’s best ingredients: the berries. I used my uncle’s homemade berry liqueur and added lemon, soda water, and some gooseberries I bought at the local farmer’s market. The spritz formula did not let me down! This drink with Riondo Prosecco was so good, like cooling-off-on-the-breezy-balcony-after-a-sticky-day-at-work good.

This summer I’ve been keeping it relatively simple on the cocktail front and focused on the classics with a twist. One of the easiest ways to add extra flavor to a basic drink is with bitters. (Although I do love a good additional foraged ingredient. :))
.
Today is#NationalDaiquiriDay and in honor of that I’ve partnered with @scrappysbitters to make a daiquiri with a bit of extra flavor using bitters! I wanted to use Scrappy’s Cardamom Bitters so when I was looking for one additional flavor to add, I found some Bishop’s Weed in the front yard that has the flavor of celery. I found some Indian dishes with cardamom and celery and figured it would taste well in a cocktail! :)
.
🐝Scrappy's Spiced Daiquiri Spritz🐝
🔸1 1/2 oz light rum
🔸3/4 oz 1:1 brown sugar simple syrup
🔸3/4 oz fresh lime juice
🔸Muddled Bishop's Weed (Or celery, it's a similar flavor!)
🔸1 dash Scrappy's Cardamom Bitters 🔸Seltzer to top
.
Muddle the bishop's weed/celery in a shaker with rum. Add the lime juice, simple syrup, and Scrappy's Cardamom Bitters with ice. Shake, strain, and serve over ice in a champagne flute or wine glass with ice. Garnish with an herb or bishop's weed. .

This month is the start of the best couple months for the rooftop garden. Tomatoes, peppers, herbs, and so much mint I don’t know what to do with it all. :) Almost every morning I’ve had basil pesto on little toasts for breakfast and nights are for cocktails with flower garnishes. 🌸🌼🌻 .

This summer I also tried something I haven’t done before and planted some zinnias in containers. I am so surprised and delighted by how long their blooms last!! ❤️ . . .

The last week I’ve been in Alaska with my family visiting my aunt and uncle outside of Anchorage. The first night my uncle pulled out a bottle of his homemade “hooch” for us to try. (My aunt prefers to call it his homemade Chambord. :P) One of the by-products of his hooch is a berry “sludge” that he saves and freezes. Turns out it’s a delicious cocktail ingredient! :) The garnish on this drink is the Alaska Sitka rose.
.
🌸Andy’s Raspberry Sludge Sour🌸
🔸1.5oz bourbon or whiskey
🔸1tbsp “Raspberry Sludge” or a handful of muddled berries
🔸.75oz fresh lemon juice
🔸1tsp sugar
🔸Top with ginger beer (I use @qdrinks 🔸Muddled Thyme .
Add bourbon and muddle with thyme. Add berries, lemon, and sugar to a shaker with ice. Shake, strain, and add to an old fashioned glass with crushed ice. Top with ginger beer.

June is, in my opinion, the best month for cocktail foraging. Milkweed, bee balm, lilacs, mulberries— some of the best flavors come to life in June. :) June is also National Pollinator Month, dedicated to celebrating the important work that bees, birds, bats, butterflies, and beetles do for the world. I received a bottle of @catskillprovisionsny NY Honey Rye to make a drink and spread the word! I picked some mulberries on Randall’s Island and thought they’d be a perfect ingredient for a pollinator-celebrating June cocktail. 🥃🍯🥃 #catskillprovisions #savethebees
.
🐝 Bumble Bramble 🐝
🔸1oz mulberry simple syrup
🔸2oz @catskillprovisionsny NY Honey Rye
🔸1oz lemon
🔸1oz kombucha
.
To make the mulberry simple, I took 1 cup sugar and muddled almost a cup of mulberries in it. Then I added 1 cup water and made simple on the stove until the mixture was no longer opaque. Let it cool, strain, and keep in the fridge!
.
For the cocktail, add all ingredients to a shaker except kombucha. Shake with ice, strain into a cobbler glass with crushed ice, and top with bubbly kombucha. Serve with a mulberry leaf and berry garnish!

Happy Summer solstice! I worked with the folks at @cognacUSA to create a summer cocktail using one of the quintessential summer ingredients: corn. When I was testing variations of this drink with friends, at first people wrinkled their nose at the idea of corn in a cocktail until they tried it. Corn is such a sweet ingredient and it makes drinks so creamy it’s almost like there’s an egg white in them!
.
I’ve had a lot of fun playing with the dimensional, smooth cognac in both my spring and summer drinks, and I’m excited to develop something for fall as well! (Although thankfully fall feels lightyears away. :)) #ad (PS- photo is by my sister-in-law @kateruthphoto ❤️)
.
🌽 Corny Alexander 🌽
🔸1.5oz cognac
🔸.5oz simple syrup
🔸.75oz lime juice
🔸Handful fresh sweet corn cut off the cob (about a quarter cup)
🔸Basil for muddling and garnish
.
Directions:
Blend the cognac and corn together and strain through a fine mesh strainer into a cocktail shaker. (Tip: Push all liquid out of the solids with the back of a spoon!) Add simple syrup, lime juice, and basil to the shaker and muddle the basil. Shake with ice. Strain and serve in a coupe glass. Garnish with a corn husk curl, corn kernels, and a sprig of basil.

Keep forgetting to post these photos from when my sister-in-law @kateruthphoto was in town and we drank tiki drinks out of the tiki mugs. Kate is an incredible Minneapolis-based photographer and is always full of helpful photo advice every time we see each other. <3 She is also responsible for most of the photos I've got of myself over the past few years. :P
.
To celebrate her visit, we made a bourbon cocktail in the tiki mugs. I love using bourbon in tiki cocktails because it's not what you immediately think of when you're scheming up new tropical-feeling drinks.
.
🌿Tiki Thyme 🌿
🔸.75oz fresh lemon juice
🔸.75oz fresh orange juice
🔸.5 oz thyme-infused simple syrup (Bee balm leaves work too and they're in season!)
🔸1.5oz bourbon
🔸Dash Angostura bitters
.
Add all ingredients to a shaker with ice. Shake, strain, and serve on crushed ice in a tiki mug. To make the tyme/bee balm-infused simple syrup, make a regular 1:1 simple and add a handful of leaves to the syrup to infuse as the syrup cools!
