Grapefruit Ginger Spiced Rum Punch

Grapefruit juice, ginger beer & sparkling wine are combined in this easy spiced rum punch recipe, perfect for serving a crowd at birthday, Christmas or holiday parties!

Making delicious bowls of cocktails is something I’ve become known for. In the summer, I’m all about the Lemon Berry Prosecco Sangria and at Thanksgiving, it’s all about the Cranberry Apple Sangria.

Around the holidays everyone goes crazy for this Cranberry Apple Moscow Mule Punch and this Grapefruit Ginger Spiced Rum Punch! And since it’s the holidays, it’s totally acceptable to make both!

One thing I love about serving this punch bowl at parties is that the drinks are pre-made and everyone can serve themselves whenever they’d like!

Another thing I love about this rum punch is that you simply pour everything into a bowl, stir and serve. It’s so easy to make, you can whip it up in 5 minutes to serve at your own party or take to a party! Read the full post here!

Ok, so let’s take a minute to talk about this coconut kick I’m on right now! Does anyone else go on kicks where they’re really loving one ingredient or cuisine or cooking method for like a month straight? Is that just a food blogger thing, or is it just me?!

Sometimes I’ll look at my upcoming recipe content calendar for the blog and all of the sudden realize that every recipe is in a bowl, or grilled, or has coconut in it, like this month! I guess we’ll just call this “The month of the coconut” on WhitneyBond.com! 😉

Long Island Iced Coffee Recipe

A couple of months ago, I stumbled upon Halcyon, a new hybrid coffee/bar/restaurant in the East Village neighborhood of downtown San Diego.

I was with a group of friends on a Friday night, so we asked for the cocktail list. I was so ridiculously excited when they presented me with an entire menu of coffee cocktails. As a die-hard coffee-loving girl, I couldn’t wait to try one of these cocktail creations!

I was immediately drawn to the “Long Island Iced Coffee” – I was both intrigued and excited about trying this – I figured that it would either be the best thing ever or totally weird – IT WAS THE BEST THING EVER!
