Cocktail Recipe Thursday: Cozy Hot Toddy

Halloween Drink Recipes Hot Toddy

Fall Cocktails

October is when this southern California lifestyle blogger starts looking for new Halloween drink recipes, and fall drink recipes. One good way to make easy mixed drinks with a fall inspiration is to add in apple or cinnamon. Warm that up and you have something that will keep you cozy all autumn long.

On deck today for Cocktail Thursday is one of the new fall drink recipes, the Cozy Hot Toddy. Using Sparkling ICE instead of traditional apple cider cuts down on the sugar and calories considerably. I mean, I would rather eat a slice of apple pie than drink my calories this fall, am I right?

New Thanksgiving Recipe: CHIPOTLE CARROT SALAD

chipotle mayo recipe from just mayo

New Thanksgiving Recipes

There is nothing more predictable than Thanksgiving dinner.  Though very tasty it is usually this: turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, and gravy.  Add in some green beans if you’re feeling festive.  But why not add something new to the Thanksgiving dinner?  This chipotle carrot salad recipe would also be a great addition onto the table for Thanksgiving.  The usually starch heavy Thanksgiving dinner can use a little more vegetable recipes if you ask me. While there is nothing on the table I don’t like during the holidays this new Thanksgiving recipe would add a nice spice to a usually mellow Thanksgiving dinner.   If you are looking to stay away questionable ingredients, you can start with the mayonnaise.  Just Mayo is non-GMO, gluten-free, soy free, dairy-free, lactose-free, and cholesterol-free. And once you get the mayo taken care of, throw some heat into it with chipotle!  POW!

Living in southern California there are a few things that are ubiquitous: flip flops, yoga pants, eating dinner outside all year long, and all of your neighbors getting solar panels on their roofs. It is almost as if we all got a memo at the same time that we should put some solar panels on our roofs, and now that I have my own home, it is on my to-do list.

But is it really worth it? Do you have questions about installing solar panels? Find out more about Sunrun solar service and a special offer just for Busy Bee Blogger readers after the jump!

With all of the the focus on the bad that is happening inside the NFL, how about we focus on something good. Eric Weddle, free safety for the San Diego Chargers best known for his hard hits and beard, has teamed up with Southern California jewelry company London Bella Designs for his own line of jewelry. But wait, it gets better. This San Diego Chargers inspired jewelry line will raise money for women’s domestic abuse organizations in the area. Nothing wrong with that!

With every piece that is sold money is donated to local charities. You can choose from necklaces, rings, stacking bracelets and earrings. All are San Diego Chargers color inspired with the gold and blue, or have the bolt.

Bolt ring from eric weddle chargers london bella designs for domestic abuse

I was able to see the line up close and personal last weekend, and even bought myself one of the delicate gold bolt knuckle rings. These are hot, and everybody was wanting one of these. The stacking bracelets were very wearable, even if you are not a San Diego Chargers fan. They look great stacked up on the wrist with jeans.

This is the kind of things that makes San Diego great. Eric Weddle is not only known as a great San Diego Charger playing in the NFL, he is also known around San Diego as being very supportive and helping when people need a hand. It is not just a pose this man walks the walk and we could not be more proud to have him here in San Diego.

In order to support the domestic abuse organizations by grabbing up some of your own San Diego Chargers inspired jewelry visit London Bella Designs.  Or if you are at a home game, you may be able to find them tailgating around B3!
