Spiked Hot Chocolate*

Down here in Florida we're going through a real cold streak. I mean, it's like 65 degrees here and that is totally unacceptable! Sorry, had to rub it in. It is common Florida knowledge that anything under 70 degrees allows: boots, sweaters, the occasional scarf, and hot beverages. I'm a sucker for hot chocolate with fresh whipped cream. Then you add the peppermint schnapps to it and that takes things to a whole new level. I mean, it's good. Real ...

Blood Orange Margaritas*

Who doesn't love margaritas? Answer: weird people. Margaritas are just so delicious! They're sweet and sour with a little kick of salty from the rum. Just delicious.
