There are any number of fruit liqueurs you can buy—some not much more than sugar and food coloring, some (thankfully) far more faithful to the taste of their ingredients. But there's nothing that compares to making your own. And nothing simpler, either.
Food lovers across America have been submitting recipes to Bertolli Olive Oil's Taste of Tradition Recipe Contest, and holy smokes are we impressed by these creative, delicious-looking dishes. Take these Meyer Lemon Olive Oil Cakes with Ricotta Mascarpone Cheese Frosting, submitted by Melissa Stadler. In an inventive twist, they use Bertolli Olive Oil instead of plain oil or butter, which not only complements their luscious, lemony flavor, but also keeps them irresistibly moist and tender
As we've learned with bitters, a single drop of a hyper-concentrated liquid can change the whole character of a drink. And while bitters are the best-known example, you can extract all sorts of other flavors with Everclear®, too. You'll see the word "tincture" thrown around quite a bit in the bar world. And while the term originally meant an herbal extract, today it refers to any potent flavor that's extracted through alcohol -- we've seen rosemary tinctures, coffee tinctures, even cheese tinctures (although that last one might be a little adventurous, even for us). What they all have in common: The flavors are drawn out by high-proof alcohol like Everclear®, And just like bitters, they concentrate an incredible amount...
Hard cider is something of a comeback kid. After years of flying under the radar, it's made a huge resurgence across the United States as imbibers rediscover all the qualities that made it a favorite among our early American forbearers. Leading the way in this hard cider renaissance is Angry Orchard, who produce a lineup of cider styles that explore the depths of what the beverage can be. For over 20 years, Angry Orchard has worked to perfect their craft, experimenting along the way with cider recipes, ingredients, and fermentation processes. Their latest seasonal cider, Angry Orchard Summer Honey, is the result of careful matchmaking between juicy, fruit-forward Washington state apples and elegant, floral wildflower honey. Complex yet smooth and...
Mixologist John McCarthy has at least a few batches of bitters brewing at any given time; and while the ingredients differ, the base is always the same: Everclear®. "I always use Everclear's 190-proof bottle, because the higher the alcohol content, the quicker the infusion. And when I'm working at busy bars and have a high turnover, the quicker I can make it, the better."
Some ingredients on a cocktail menu sound familiar—bottles you can pick up at the liquor store. "Bourbon." "Gin." "Sweet vermouth." But if you're at a craft cocktail bar, you'll often see slightly more obscure items listed. (And you can bet that the term "housemade" will precede them.) House rosemary tincture, house grapefruit bitters—how do bartenders actually create these? Often, it's with one familiar but little-appreciated ingredient: Everclear®.
Summer simply wouldn't be the same without its time-honored rituals. Sometimes, however, you gotta call take two and modernize those traditions.

They have that classic Lipton flavor that captures everything you know and love about iced tea. But with three simple steps for brewing, Lipton® K-Cup® packs also represent a new tradition in summertime sipping.

Memorial Day is here, and with it the season of cookouts is officially upon us. What are you grilling this weekend? We're going to whip up a batch of these chicken kabobs.

Butterball's new line of Natural Inspirations lunchmeat are great to keep in the fridge for a quick lunch. They're fantastic for sandwiches or on top of a salad, but we've got another fun idea for you: cucumber boats! It couldn't be easier. Just slice a cucumber lengthwise, scoop out the seeds, and fill with guacamole, roast turkey, and a bit of pico de gallo. Garnish with cilantro and you've got a tasty, filling and refreshing lunch that comes together in a snap.
Check out The Tippling Bros. recipe for the Black Sand, an elegant and beguiling cocktail that takes the watermelon margarita to a very different level. The vermouth and oregano bring complex herbaceousness while the sandia—that would be "watermelon" in Spanish—and mint keep the freshness alive.
We all know we're supposed to like kale. But finding a recipe that actually makes it a pleasure to eat is sometimes easier said than done. Richard Blais's recipe for kale and ham salad will not only turn any kale skeptic into a believer, it does so by artfully balancing an array of bold flavors. The leaves get tossed with sweet dates, creamy chickpeas, and spicy chipotle gouda, then coated in a succulent honey dijon dressing with a kick of bright lemon.
Ah, the omelette. Any cook worth their salt knows how to form one just so. Just a swoop and a fold and a... splat? Even if your omelette technique needs a little practice, there's one thing you absolutely cannot mess up: a killer filling. And nothing goes better with eggs than the classics: think savory ham, lightly browned onions, and plenty of melty cheese.
We all know that pesto starts with something green, picking up a glug of oil and a sprinkle of cheese along the way. But beyond those few basic rules, well, there aren't really any rules—pesto is the sort of versatile sauce that lets you get creative and really run with it.
Are you the sort of person who owns a bevy of baking dishes? Do you get excited every time you deglaze a hot pan with wine? Has your family started rolling their eyes every time you inform them "it's not casserole, it's cassoulet"?
