Colleen Jeffers  Hi there! πŸ‘‹I'm here to help you make interesting cocktails at home + find good drinks in cities worldwide | πŸ“© thegooddrinkblog@gmail.com


Sous vide cocktails, anyone? πŸ’πŸ»Need help drinking this batch! πŸ™ I (finally) got a precision cooker and have barely stepped outside the kitchen this week, I've been so busy experimenting. Some of the highlights so far: clarified grapefruit cordial, quick 'barrel aged' mulled Manhattans, Oregon albacore sashimi, coconut braised kale, and an amazing fresh fig + vanilla syrup, the key ingredient in these pretty Figgy Fizzes. If your farm market is brimming with fresh figs (they're in season right now) like mine is, grab a pint and get cooking! Also, if you have any must-try sous vide recipes, I'm all ears -- I basically plan on precision cooking all my meals from this day forward. πŸ˜… Recipe at the link in profile via @theinspiredhome_com!

Bottled tailgate cocktails! πŸ‚πŸˆπŸ Tailgating season is here, but beer is definitely not the only thing that belongs in your cooler. These easy, crowd pleasing cocktails can be pre-made and packed in pretty swing top bottles for maximum fun and minimal effort. They're a twist on the classic Greyhound (gin or vodka + grapefruit) with a touch of maple and rosemary to bend the flavor profile ever so slightly towards fall. To me, the ideal party drink LOOKS impressive (hello, gorgeous rosemary sprigs), but is secretly easy-as-heck to make. I kept the ingredient list and assembly of this one extremely simple, so you have no excuses not to up your game next time you're in charge of the tailgate cooler.

Anyone else in full denial that autumn is just around the corner? πŸ‘‹πŸ‚πŸ˜± I'm wrapping up an east coast vacation with dearly missed family and friends (plus some much needed time away from screens πŸ’»πŸ“±πŸ“Ί), and as much as it pains me to say goodbye to another great summer, I can't help but get a leeeettle bit excited for the return of some of my favorite seasonal ingredients. My newest recipe uses my absolute favorite fall spirit (yep, I have a favorite spirit for fall πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ), and is pretty much the best way to toast the end of one great season and start of another. You can find it on @theinspiredhome_com blog at the link in my profile! 🍎❀️#howisummer #feedfeed #f52grams #foodandwine #bhgfood #flashesofsummer #imbibegram #ggcocktailhour #abmlifeiscolorful #abmsummer

Putting the finishing touches up on my weekender's guide to Oregon wine country, one of my favorite places on earth. Can't wait to share it with you guys so so soon! Also sweating my tushie off because it's 104 degrees here today and we don't have AC, please send help and all of the popsicles πŸ’¦πŸ’¦πŸ’¦

Tiki Party time! I'm sharing not one, not two, but THREE brand new tiki cocktail recipes over on the @theinspiredhome_com blog, because it's hot as πŸ”₯β˜„οΈπŸ’₯ here in Portland (108 degrees is no joke) and I'm pretending I'm on a tropical island. 🌴🍹🌊 Mixed Berry Mai Tai Punch, Boozy Tropical Popsicles, and Coconut Daiquiris are helping immensely.

I know it's only Monday, but is anyone else already planning for next weekend? πŸ™‹I've been out and about a LOT this summer, so I'm sharing a travel-friendly, make-ahead, crowd-pleasing recipe over on @theinspiredhome_com. Yes, these are Adult Juice Boxes and they're a definite improvement on the classic Capri Sun πŸ˜… Get the deets at the link in my profile!

Watermelon Daiquiris, anyone? πŸ‰β„οΈ I'm sharing all my secrets for perfect blender cocktails along with this brand spankin' new, 4 ingredient recipe over on the @theinspiredhome_com blog! Get the deets at the link in my profile, 'cause it's almost the weekend and we all need to be prepared. πŸ’ͺ

Frozen Lavender Bee Sting! 🐝 Loving the frozen drink series from @imbibe, so when I snagged some fresh honeycomb in @oregonwinecountry this weekend, I knew I had to give their frozen Bee Sting a whirl. Also, since fresh lavender is EVERYWHERE right now and I love me a good honey-lavender combo, I infused my gin beforehand. Super easy to make in batches cause you're definitely gonna want more than one of these!
2 oz lavender infused gin
1.25 oz warm honey
1.5 oz fresh squeezed lemon
170 grams (by weight) ice
Multiply the recipe by as many drinks as you plan to consume/serve (seriously guys, you should make at least two). Combine the liquid ingredients in a blender and blend on high until the honey dissolves. Add the ice and blend on high until smooth. Garnish with honeycomb if you have it!

ROSΓ‰ hack! πŸ₯‚ Some of you may have caught a glimpse of my weekend adventure in Oregon wine country via my Stories. This little beauty is what I mixed myself up in the adorable vintage Airstream kitchen @the_vintages! It was πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯ out and I wanted something a skosh colder than chilled wine, so I shook two 1 oz cubes of fresh coconut water with 6 oz of dry rose and posted up by the pool. β›± A juice shake is a great way to get something colder than fridge temp while adding flavor and not over diluting. And it's fun to try different juice combos! If you go for coconut water like I did, make sure it's fresh from the coconut or the expensive non-pasteurized stuff! Never put shelf coconut water in your wine πŸ™…

Forgive me while I GUSH about my weekend staying in the cutest vintage trailer (a 1963 SilverStreak Duchess for all you Airstream diehards) smack dab in the middle of Oregon's incredible wine country. This lovely kitchen is IN THE AIRSTREAM. Design fans, adventure fans, and wine fans: you seriously need to check out @the_vintages. I am in full SQUEE mode over here - you can see more of this trailer's stunning interior on my Story!

The perfect G&T is an art form, and Angel Teta @ataulapdx is a master. Drinking through her menu of sherry, vermouth, and G&T variations took me right back to Spain. Also: how pretty is this?! Put Ataula on your must-try list, people!
