Saturday Salute | The Pineapple Paloma

pineapple-drink
With fall beach days being an apparent regular thing these days in California, we’re in no mood start adding pumpkin spice and warming whisky to our beverages. Inauthentic to the point of miniature umbrella status, this take on the traditionally booze-heavy lime and tequila drink satisfies your fruity, festive, scent-of-sunscreen-loving self. Perfectly, unseasonably appropriate. Read on for the recipe, care of Clean Sink…

Saturday Salute: How To Make Coconut Milk

coconut-milk-recipe
Ever add coconut milk to your coffee, only to end your morning with a final swig of chalky white powder. You could only hope that the chalky substance in boxed coconut milk is some form of macerated coco. But flip the box over and read the ingredients. Chances are, the list extends far beyond coconut and water. Instead of ditching coconut milk all together, take 2 minutes (maybe 7 if starting from a whole coconut) and whip up some of the fresh stuff.

Salute to Summer: The Watermelon Paloma

watermelon-paloma1-645
Send off summer with a cocktail that combines two of our favorite things: watermelon and sea salt (oh yeah, and tequila). Don’t be fooled by the unicorn tear-pink hue, this cocktail isn’t for lightweights or sugar saturated drink-lovers. It packs a well disguised, perfectly balanced punch…that can, coincidentally, be served punch-style in the melon from whence it came. And because it contains zero added sugar, it’s a recipe that cocktail aficionados, beach bod conscious imbibers and casual Sunday sippers can enjoy equally.
Cheers to another perfect summer, watermelon in hand. Read on for the recipe…
