Avocado And Lime Margarita - Cook Republic

Avocado And Lime Margarita

A few months ago I got involved in a fun avocado project where I had to create 30 Instagram posts of recipe inspirations highlighting the mighty avo, one for every day of the month. After the initial excitement of avocado toast and guacamole wore off, I had a terrible sinking feeling that I had run out of avo juice on the third day of the project. What does one do with avocado besides smear it on toast and mash it up in a delicious guac for t... Read More >>

Pineapple And Lychee Fizz

Nothing screams summer more than a perfectly golden pineapple with a spiky green crown instantly transporting you to a gently swaying hammock under lush palm fronds. And then you bring some lime, some lychees, some rum and a whole lot of ice and you can sway yourself into dreamy oblivion. I have recently started sharing our cocktail recipes which have become a special ritual on Friday nights. Over the years, our trusty SodaStream Sparkling Wa... Read More >>

CHAI LATTE TIRAMISU

Christmas is just over six weeks away. Okay, now you can panic!

Super Green Turmeric Bloody Mary And Date Nights

Nick and I met 21 years ago when we were starry eyed and 18. Within a month, we had forged a bond that went deeper than societal norms and expectations. It started with an easy going friendship that blossomed into love. We dated for the longest time – 6 years. Then came marriage and a couple of years later, the birth of our older boy. The once starry eyes were red rimmed with lack of sleep and the love was there but hiding under the covers wi... Read More >>

Baileys Winter Cocktail Shake With Hot Chocolate Fudge Sauce

Give me a spectacular cocktail with a bit of dramatic flair and I am your girl Friday! The Leo in me loves the theatre that unfolds on the table when you are presented with an interactive cocktail or dessert for a special occasion. For my third recipe collaboration with Baileys, I decided to combine all these ideas and emotions into a cocktail shake with a flaming marshmallow atop a layer of creamy foam and hot chocolate fudge sauce. Let t... Read More >>

Baileys Jelly And White Chocolate Mousse

I recently discovered a great little trick to creating an instant jelly with the use of cornflour as opposed to gelatine. This kind of jelly sets much faster and has a mousse like consistency, making it ideal for fast desserts. After experimenting making this jelly with all kinds of fruit juices (orange was my most favourite!), I decided to play around with my most favourite winter warming liqueur - Baileys Irish Cream. The result was an amaz... Read More >>
