  • Tequila Lemonade aka the Eveleigh Lemonade

    I love cocktails with tequila, but I have to admit sometimes I get tired of just having margaritas or a tequila and soda.  I have been in search of a new tequila drink.  Then I remembered a drink called the “Eveleigh Lemonade”, which is basically a margarita with lemon and honey instead of lime and agave nectar. I first was introduced to this cocktail at it’s namesake restaurant The Eveleigh in West Hollywood, CA in 2012.  I’ve been in search of the recipe for this drink ever since and I finally found it on the Imbibe Magazine site.  What makes this drink interesting and different is the chamomile and lemon infused tequila and the use of the aperitif Cocchi Americano.    So, what exactly is Cocchi Americano?   Well, according to Wikipedia: “Cocchi Americano is a quinine-laced aperitif wine produced by Giulio Cocchi Spumanti in the Asti province of Italy. Cocchi Americano is a variety of Americano. The wine was developed by… Read More

  • Bubbles and Berries Cocktail

    Today on the blog I’m sharing a recipe for a drink called Bubbles and Berries. It’s inspired by the Bubbles and Berries cocktail at the restaurant Beauty and Essex in Los Angeles. If you follow me on Instagram and see my Instastories, you know that I thoroughly love Beauty and Essex. I’ve been in contact with their PR group and they were so gracious to give me the recipes to several of their cocktails, which I’ll be doing in a future post.  Unfortunately, they did not give me the recipe to this one, so I watched the bartender carefully and made a few tweaks to come up with this recipe. Specifically I don’t have sweet-and-sour at home so I make my own.  It’s actually a lot easier than you’d think, all you need is simple syrup and lemon juice. I must add that I haven’t always been a fan of… Read More

  • Simple and Delicious Rose Sangria

    Rose sangria is synonymous with summer for me.   That’s why I love to make this easy and tasty summer drink every summer.  It’s always a hit.  Specifically it reminds me of summers spent on Shelter Island, New York with my husband.  We spent many summers there and loved to go to the Sunset Beach Hotel.  They had a vineyard on the property and made their own rosè wine, called “Sunset Beach Rosé André Balazs” that would be used in the sangria and it was always delicious.  Since then I’ve been trying to re-create the sangria. The key ingredient in this Rosè Sangria is peach nectar, it really adds that extra bit of something special. I hope you like this recipe!  If you try it out please let me know in the comment below or use #livingwithclaire on Instagram.   To learn how to make the sangria, please check out… Read More

  • Holiday Party Signature Cocktail – The Very Berry Cocktail

    Choosing a Holiday Party Signature Cocktail can be a hard one.  Should you choose one with mint? Should you garnish with red and green? There are so many options.  Well, I hosted a party last weekend and I had this very conundrum.  It was for my sisters in Lipstick Sisters LA and I knew this group would appreciate a champagne cocktail.  After a few taste tests, I came up with the Very Berry Cocktail, part Ruby Red Grapefruit, Cranberry Pomegranate juice and champagne and garnished with frozen cranberries to keep it chilled, see full recipe below.
