How To Make Milk Kefir
Milk kefir is an easy sell for anyone who loves yogurt, which I most definitely do. KefirsmoothieprobioticsAll you need is a teaspoon of active kefir grains and a cup of whole milk. Milk kefir is a fermented dairy product similar in many ways to yogurt and buttermilk. It’s how kefir is cultured that makes it really unique — instead of heating the milk, adding a culture, and keeping it warm as you do with yogurt, all you need to make milk kefir are kefir grains.

Che Bap (Vietnamese Sweet Corn Pudding)
One of my most enduring childhood memories is watching my bà nội, or grandmother, shaving corn – the clean, confident stroke of her knife, and the tumble of sweet, juicy kernels released from the cob. If we were lucky, she’d stir the kernels into a pot of coconut milk with tapioca pearls to make chè, a delectable Vietnamese pudding. I can think of few better treats than chè on a summer afternoon.

Hot Chocolate and Whiskey? Yes, Please! Hot Cocoa & Kilbeggan Whiskey
On one of my very first forays into journalism, I was tasked with interviewing some local Atlanta lifestyle celebrities about comfort foods and one interview in particular has stuck with me. Recently it once again popped into my mind giving me the ideal drink idea for our 10-Minute Happy Hour. At the time Lee May was a garden journalist for the Atlanta Journal and Constitution.

Better Than It Sounds: Vietnamese Egg Soda (Soda Sua Hot Ga)
You’ve heard, perhaps, of raw eggs in cocktails (Ramos gin fizz, eggnog), but in soda?! Yes, and it’s better than it sounds. Soda sữa hột gà, or Vietnamese egg soda, may seem odd, but it’s surprisingly refreshing. Made from egg yolk, sweetened condensed milk, and club soda, it tastes like a rich, custardy ice cream soda.

Milk and Booze! How To Make Sweet Milk Liqueur
Say hello to the newest addition to our liquor cabinet! This rather improbable combination of vodka and milk makes a liqueur so smooth and perfectly sweet that you’ll want to sip it straight. To make one, simply mix vodka or grappa with an equal amount of milk and sugar. We love the idea of making our own liqueurs, and we’ve been wanting to try this milk liqueur ever since we saw it in David Leite’s most recent book The New Portuguese Table.

Mango Colada
I once went to the Caribbean and actually got sick of piña coladas. It happens to the best of us. Midway through the vacation, I asked my bartender to switch it up a bit and it turns out that the same drink made with mango is just as good, if not better. The bartender kept the pineapple slice garnish as a nostalgic nod to our journey together through a week of seaside cocktails. If you don’t want to bother tracking down a ripe mango and slicing it, use frozen mango.

Cold Brewed Jamaica (Hibiscus Iced Tea)
At taco trucks, my drink of choice is always jamaica, that bright red brew that is a little tart, a little sweet and totally refreshing on a hot day. Made with dried hibiscus flowers, jamaica is easy enough to make at home, but it wasn’t until recently that I discovered how much tastier — and even simpler! — it can be when you cold-brew it overnight in the refrigerator.

How To Make Fruit Vodkas
It’s no pretty jar of jam or row of canned tomatoes, I know, but I suspect that making your own fruit-flavored vodkas might just be the most fun way to preserve. It’s very easy and simple; choose some ripe fruits, cover them with vodka, and wait for a few days until the vodka tastes good.

Kombucha and ginger are a dynamic duo of superhero proportions. Kombucha is delightfully tart and fizzy; ginger brings a warm and spicy side-kick punch.

In the end, you can’t beat simplicity: super-fresh ginger in every bottle.

Weekend Recipe: Sauerbraten for Oktoberfest
It’s that time of the year when people around the world go to German beer halls and German restaurants to celebrate Oktoberfest. Are you in the mood to try some homemade German cuisine this weekend? Try sauerbraten! The word means “sour roast,” and the dish is a roast beef that is marinated in vinegar and then braised. In the old days, sauerbraten was made with venison or horsemeat; today, most people use beef.
