St Patrick’s Day is coming tomorrow, and New York is all about getting ready for all the celebrations around the date. It is a Saint celebration, and the Irish traditionally celebrate cheering with a right amount of boozy envolved.

Miss Caipi is all set with her Patti’s Caipi cocktail made with Telling Irish Whiskey, Owl’s Brew Wicked Green mixer and green apple nectar. Since It is an Irish holiday, I tried to go as Irish as possible with the ingredients I picked, doing research about popular fruits in Ireland that I could use as a reference to create the cocktail.Let’s bring it out the Irish culture to celebrate the date!

I am also displaying another cocktail sent to me by Casamigos Tequila, owned by George Clooney and Rande Gerber, I like the brand, and quality comes at a high level. The cocktail mix is balanced and easy to prepare so let ‘s not waste time and learn how to make these St Patrick Day Cocktails!

A taste of Brazilian Barbecue at Meat Market Steakhouse

Drinks/ Fashion/ Lifestyle

 During my visit to Palm Beach, I stopped by at one of  Meat Market Steakhouse‘s branch to check it out some of the Chef Sean’s new creations on their menu. For the ones that read my last year post, “Meat Market for Dinner tonight”, already know Meat Market and Chef Sean Brasel has the best to offer. The great hospitality and delicious food provided it is definitely something I would like to experience all the time and that’s probably why makes me coming back. With different locations spread around the country, at this time I went to visit the Meat Market Palm Beach,  awarded as one of the 10 best restaurants in town by US Today.

The Palm beach branch has a different environment than the one in Miami beach, especially on Thursdays nights when They have a DJ coming after 11 turning the place into a big dance floor, transforming from a restaurant to a lounge/club scene with guests dancing and mingling all over the place. It is definitely worth to check it out but if you are planning on having a full dinner course, make sure to get there before the party starts to have enough time to enjoy your meal and party afterward.

How To Make a Mr. Nono Caipi Cocktail

Drinks/ Cool Girl's Diary

I am so happy to finally be able to share the recipe, Miss Caipi, created for the Mr. Nono Cocktail. I already introduced the recipe during the “Give To Receive” Pop Shop Event during the holidays. The name Mr. Nono,  it is the name of a character introduced on the Blog post ” What Is It to Be a Cool Girl”, people really loved the funny name!

I might come out of other versions of this drink using the same name, maybe different fruits depend on the season and the circumstances of the Event. The drink was mixed under the Mr. Nono mood, mysterious and not sweet at all. I used angostura bitters, lemon juice and a splash of orange juice and a touch of honey to balance all the ingredients. It can be mixed with Sake, Vodka or even bourbon. If you are not the type that like sweet drinks, this one will suit you perfectly. Let’s learn how to make a Mr. Nono Caipi! Read more

Holidays with Dunkin Donuts and Irish Coffee Caipi

Drinks

Holidays is the perfect time for inspirations and new creations, especially in NYC when there are lights, decorations, ornaments and Christmas trees all over. This time also marks the beginning of the winter season and the warm drinks that come along with it. Who doesn’t like to have a warm coffee by the fireplace while opening the presents? I do…

With that idea serving as inspiration for a holiday cocktail, Miss Caipi created an Irish Coffee drink to warm up your spirits! A few days ago, I had the opportunity to meet Noura, a very talented Culinary Artist from a Dunkin Donuts located on Long Island. She introduced me to her holiday Donuts creations for the season, which are considered the best ones done among all the company’s branches all over USA. While photographing her creations and chatting, it came to my mind this would be the perfect opportunity for Miss Caipi to come up with a drink creation, a drink that could be paired with Noura’s Holiday Donuts and one of Dunkin Donuts seasonal coffee flavors.

Holiday Sales Bargains and Vegan Shakes

Drinks/ Lifestyle

Holiday Season is starting and I could find some great Holiday Sales bargains for Columbus Day at H&M and a great place for super natural smoothies called Summers in Soho to share with you.

It is amazing how you can build an outfit for only $14 digging through H&M’s sales racks! You can find simple dresses for only $10 witch you can accessorize in your own style and build a great day look. That’s exactly what I did with the sales bargains I found there this time. Shopping around sales items can be a little tricky, you have to be very careful  to not get lost around all these $7, $10 bargains and ending up with a bunch of unnecessary pieces in your closet. The best advice I can give you it is to get the pieces that you think you can possibly pair with others ones you already have it; and when you get home try everything mix and match and if you have a second thought that you won’t be able to wear or pair with anything just return the unnecessary items.
