Cocktails with Editor Michelle Dompierre Southern, for BellaOnline Chill Out With A Coffee Frappe

For coffee lovers of all types, this delicious frozen martini is wonderful as a cool treat on a hot night -- or a cold night with a hot guest. Be prepared and make ahead, as you must freeze part of this drink and have it on hand to mix with the rest of the ingredients. Indulge your taste buds. Beat the heat! :)



Recent Recipes and Articles:

Haven't dropped by lately? Here are the currently featured recipes for cocktails, mocktails, reviews, and other articles since my last newsletter:
Trend Alert: Pomtini Martini Recipe
Cosmopolitans have been replaced by the incredibly trendy Pomtini, which uses healthy pomegranate juice and delivers a sweet / tart flavour. Guests will be entranced by the taste, the colour, and your incredible sense of style when you serve this at your next get-together.

Cutting Back On Booze?

You can eliminate most, if not all, of the alcohol in the cocktail recipes I feature and write about. To find heavenly recipes for beverages that don't involve any booze at all, check out my section on Mocktails (which are alcohol-free cocktails). You'll enjoy all of the fun without sacrificing taste!



Michelle's Swizzle-Stick Tip

Eating low-carb? You might think that you have to cut out all alcoholic beverages, but if you still want to enjoy a social drink every now and again your available choices might surprise you. Check out my resources for low-carb drink charts:

Notes On A Cocktail Napkin...
Is it just me or is everyone else chock-a-block the past few weeks? I've been working on several quilts (none of which I get to keep, by the way) and my volunteer projects, plus preparing and packing for a move to a bigger house. I've been working hard on my cocktail book, as the publisher is putting together a "press kit", which means I have completed the book's Table of Contents and several print-ready graphics of martinis and other drinks on a horrifying deadline. The strange thing is that I'm eating this up! I'm really enjoying it all, for whatever crazy reason. I'm sending this out now so that I can dig in and really get some great recipes to you through the BellaOnline Cocktails site. No doubt I'll be a candidate for Rogaine in a few months from all the pulling-my-hair-out screaming days that are bound to come, but for now I'm happy enough to sit with a Double-Double And Donut Cocktail, the sun on my face, and the breeze tickling my kitchen windchimes. How is your June going? Drop by our Forum to fill me in.
