St. Paddy's Favorite Cocktail

With St. Patrick's Day quickly approaching, we wanted to share our favorite green-themed cocktail with you!  Who doesn't love a good mint mojito?  This recipe will have others green with envy because you have the best drink in the group!  Hey, maybe if they offer you a little green, you could make one for them?!

The Mean Green Mint Mojito

Serves 1

Christmas Jambalaya

So last week at our SummerHouse Christmas party, Melanie made the BEST jambalaya any of us had ever tasted.  We asked her for the recipe and she was so sweet to share it with us. It was even her idea to put it on the blog so all of you could have it too!  Make this for your next party or gathering and be prepared for lots and lots of compliments!

Note from Melanie:  Not only is this a great dip, but it is also excellent over rice or pasta.  ENJOY! And have a very merry Christmas!

July 4th is here!

We wanted to share one of our favorite summer drink recipes with you, just in case you are looking for something a little different to take along to your Fourth of July cookout!  Make enough to share, and you’re guaranteed to be the most popular one at the party!

The BEST Margarita recipe:
1 can limeade concentrate
1 cup tequila
2 light beers
Lemon-lime soda to taste (about 1 or 2 cups)
1 or 2 limes, sliced


Mix all ingredients together in a pitcher, pour over ice, and enjoy!

This is the perfect drink to help you combat the hot Mississippi weather we’ve been battling!  The lemon-lime soda is what gives this recipe a little extra zing; it is very crisp and refreshing.  There are also lots of ways to vary this recipe to keep it exciting!  You could use zero calorie soda to make it a little lighter, or lime flavored beer to make it extra limey.  One time, we even used orange flavored beer, and cut up oranges instead of limes for a fun twist!  Yum... ENJOY!
