8 Food Blog Links We Love

August 22, 2015

We've scoured the web for our favorite food blog posts, and now we're bringing them right to your desktop. It’s hard work, but someone has to do it.

This week: End-of-summer drinks along the whole rosy spectrum.

Bloody Mary  Melon Spritzer  Watermelon  

  • No Bloody Mary mix here: These cocktails are made from heirlooms, and gilded with Old Bay. (With Food and Love)
  • Fresh cantaloupe and raspberries get muddled with mint and topped with club soda—no booze (but that's not to say you couldn't add some). (Faring Well)
  • Watermelon, Aperol, and bubbly. Twist our arms. (Salt and Wind)

  • Match sweet-tart plums with bright kaffir lime leaves, spicy ginger, and fizzy soda water. (Tending the Table)

Strawberries  Tomato Peach Raspberry  Blackberry   

  • The Negroni loses the gin, adds strawberries and Champagne, and gains subtle heat from pink peppercorns. (Earthy Feast)
  • This G&T gains sweetness from peaches—and punch from tomatoes. (Vigor and Sage)

  • A cool-as-a-cucumber spritz with fresh muddled cukes, blackberries, mint, and gin. (The Broken Bread)

  • An intensely red smash gets its booziness from gin, its color from raspberries, and its funkiness from thyme. (Chocolate and Marrow)
