Spring

  • Valentine's Day

    Make your Valentine’s Day an affair to remember with some creative entertaining ideas for your romantic night. For your significant other or a group of close friends, a thoughtful menu filled with signature cocktails, savory recipes and sweet treats will be much appreciated by your loved ones.

    COCKTAILS

    This occasion calls for a little indulgence and a touch of romance, so why not serve a cocktail like The Blood Orange Mimosa, made with Stirrings® Blood Orange Mixer and champagne?

    For a non-alcoholic version, try Stirrings® Blood Orange Mixer topped with Sparkling Water. Add the finishing touch by garnishing either option with fresh raspberries.

    FOOD

    Preparing a romantic home-cooked meal for special someone is the perfect way to show how much you care. To avoid spending all of your time in the kitchen, stick to flavorful recipes that can be prepped in advance or prepared in a flash. A menu of baby spinach salad with hearts of palm, followed by herb-roasted fish and some simple sides would ensure a stress-free experience. Keep it light to save room for a molten chocolate cake for two.

    Or, host a dessert-only themed party for a group of single friends! Gather an intimate party around pots of chocolate fondue with small plates of strawberries, sliced bananas, marshmallows, pound cake and chocolate brownie bites. Guests may each have their own fork for dipping, but the shared dish certainly encourages fun conversation and interaction.

    DECORATIONS

    For your Valentine’s Day fête, love should be all around you! To engage all of your senses, use décor, music, and lighting to bring romance into the room.

    While red roses are traditionally the chosen flower of the holiday, any pretty bloom in a pink tone, ranging from bright fuchsia to pale blush, would be a lovely alternative.

    Get inspired with your Valentine’s Day playlist by filling it with romantic or playful love songs by your favorite artists. Let your loved ones bathe in the glow of candlelight. Place unscented votives of different heights on your dinner table and around the room to cast a warm ambiance.

  • Spring Cocktail Trends

    Spring is in the air thanks to these on trend, seasonally inspired sips! Whether you’re searching for that perfect springy brunch cocktail or just looking for a simple porch sipper, the cocktail gurus at Stirrings have got you covered. Here are some of the trends, as we contemplate lighter food and an active outdoor lifestyle during the warmer months.

    Herbs & Spices in the mix

    It’s easy to add a new twist to a favorite cocktail by just adding in some interesting spices and/or herbs. Try adding thyme to your favorite Lemon Drop martini recipe, or include basil in your mojito. All you need to do to make the “Lemon Thyme Martini” is place fresh thyme into your cocktail shaker and bruise it, using your bar muddler or the back of a spoon. Then, add your Stirrings Lemon Drop Mixer and your alcohol of choice. For this recipe, we recommend vodka or gin. So tasty!

    Apple Cider and Ginger Beer Based Cocktails

    Have you noticed that craft drinkers have embraced hard ciders and ginger beers? They’re delicious on their own, but they also make fantastic lower-alcohol cocktails. Try this interesting, low-alcohol version of a Moscow Mule: Mix 3 oz Stirrings Cosmopolitan Mixer with 3 oz Ginger Beer, and you have a great Cranberry Ginger Mule! Or, mix 3 oz Stirrings Apple Mixer with 3 oz Hard Cider and you have a juicy apple of a spring spritzer.

    Tea with Everything!

    There are so many tea varieties out there that can make fantastic cocktails (everything from chai to chamomile to fruit flavored), and bartenders across the world have been using them as powerful flavoring agents in their creations. Try a Chai Bourbon Smash by making a cup of chai tea (not the creamy coffee shop version, but the straight, spice infused tea). Let the tea cool to room temperature, then mix together 2 oz Chai Tea, 3 oz Stirrings Peach Bellini, and 1.5 oz of Honey Bourbon. Below are a couple of other recipes for you to enjoy: Cheers, Team Stirrings


    COCKTAIL Rum Crusta

    • 1 oz Captain Morgan White Rum
    • .5 oz Triple Sec
    • 3 oz Stirrings Lemon Drop Martini Mixer
    • Garnish: Lemon Drop Rimmer

    Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake vigorously. Strain into a well-chilled martini glass rimmed with Stirrings Lemon Drop Rimmer.

    COCKTAIL Coconut Mojito

    • 1.5 oz Captain Morgan Coconut Rumt
    • 3 oz Stirrings Mojito Mixer
    • Splash of Soda Water
    • Garnish: Mint Sprig

    Pour Captain Morgan Coconut Rum and Stirrings Mojito Mixer into a shaker with ice. Shake vigorously, and pour into a tall glass. Top with a splash of soda water. Garnish with mint.

  • St. Patrick’s Day Party

    Nothing signals the arrival of spring like a festive St. Patrick’s Day-themed party. It’s a tradition that dates back centuries, and in the US, everyone is at least a little bit Irish on St Patrick’s Day!

    Parades and pub-crawls are great, but throwing your own St. Patrick’s Day party can be just as much fun! Here are some ideas for hosting a stylish and modern St. Patrick’s Day gathering.

    COCKTAILS

    Naturally green cocktails are a must, and of course, a Guinness cocktail will be the hit of the party! Check out our tasty suggestions below.

    FOOD

    Corned beef and cabbage can get a modern makeover by creating Corned Beef & Cabbage Mini Sliders. Slice the corned beef and top with a slaw instead of the usual boiled cabbage; so tasty and easy to eat! For dessert, how about Chocolate Guinness Brownies? Sooo good!

    DECOR

    Shamrock and leprechaun cutouts, Irish flags, and green streamers are the typical choices when it comes to creating a St. Patrick’s Day atmosphere. But if you would like to try something different, fill the space with Irish bells (a plant whose green flowers look like church bells) and gold chrysanthemums. The bells are said to bring good luck, and the chrysanthemums symbolize wealth. Create a centerpiece for the table that incorporates the holiday’s traditional colors, but leave the cartoon shamrocks behind.
    Filling mason jars with green, gold and white candies and tying ribbons around the top with shamrock nametags is a quick and easy way to make sure guests don’t leave the party empty-handed.


    COCKTAIL Green Apple Shamrock

    • 1.5 oz. Crown Royal Regal Apple
    • Garnish: Slice of apple and shamrocks

    Place Crown Royal Regal Apple and Stirrings Apple Martini Mixer into a shaker with ice. Shake vigorously, and pour into a rocks glass. Garnish with apple slice and shamrocks. Shake over ice. Pour into glass.

    BEER COCKTAIL Black Irish Shamrock

    • 4 oz. Guinness Stout
    • 3 oz. Stirrings Lemon Drop Mixer
    • 1 oz. Stirrings Blood Orange Bitters

    Pour Stirrings Lemon Drop Mixer and Blood Orange Bitters into a tall glass. Top with Guinness.

  • All About Mom

    When it comes to celebrating Mother’s Day, remember that the best present you can give is well-spent time together. Here are some entertaining ideas to help you create a memorable event for Mom. All you need is a delicious feast, elegant cocktails, and her favorite people around the dinner table to make her smile!

    COCKTAILS

    Greet the guest of honor with a pretty Bellini, made with Stirrings® Peach Bellini Mixer, or Stirrings® Blood Orange Mixer and Prosecco. Presenting a silver tray of Bellinis served in tall champagne flutes and garnished with fruit is the perfect way to start the evening.

    Another crowd-pleasing cocktail at a springtime party is spiked lemonade. We like to make our version with Smirnoff Citrus Flavored Vodka, Stirrings® Lemon Drop Mixer, and some sparkling soda water. For something lighter, skip the vodka, add more bubbles, and garnish with some fresh basil.

    FOOD

    Preparing a home cooked meal for a loved one is already a heartfelt gesture. For the perfect menu for Mom, we turned to our dear friend Mary Giuliani of Mary Giuliani Catering and Events. The celebrity caterer developed her passion for cooking and entertaining from her grandmother, who owned an Oceanside resort in Montauk, where she used to go as a young girl.

    Mary may have movie stars and fashion moguls as clients, but her style remains effortless and down-to-earth. Her no-fuss menu can be prepared ahead of time, served warm or at room temperature, and made with simple ingredients. Some of her favorite recipes for a family dinner include a mushroom herb-crusted cod loin with sautéed spinach, roasted asparagus and baby artichokes with lemon oregano aioli, and orecchiette with carmelized onions, sugar snaps and ricotta salata. She loves to finish the night with a healthy dessert of fresh fruit skewers dipped in minted whipped cream – a light yet decadent-tasting topping.

    DECOR

    Mother’s Day is a universally celebrated holiday and can certainly be considered one of the most sentimental. Play up the nostalgic nature of this day by setting the table with place cards made with family photos of special moments from childhood all the way up to present day. Keep the tradition going by taking new photos to be displayed at next year’s gathering, or placed in a photo album for a future gift.


    COCKTAIL Peach Bellini

    • 3 oz. Stirrings® Peach Bellini Mixer
    • 3 oz. Stellina di Notte Prosecco

    Place a slice of fresh peach into a champagne flute.
    Pour Stirrings® Peach Bellini Mixer over the top of the fruit.
    Top with Prosecco. (Hint: for a cool cocktail experience chill the Stirrings® Peach Bellini Mixer and the Prosecco for about an hour.)

    Blood Orange Mimosa

    • 3 oz. Stirrings® Blood Orange Mixer
    • 3 oz. Stellina di Notte Prosecco

    Place a fresh raspberry into a champagne flute.
    Pour Stirrings® Blood Orange Mixer over the top of the fruit.
    Top with Prosecco. (Hint: for a cool cocktail experience chill the Stirrings® Blood Orange Mixer and the Prosecco for about an hour.)

    MOCKTAIL Peach Rosemary Spritzer

    • 3 oz. Stirrings® Peach Bellini Mixer
    • 3 oz. Lemon Flavored Sparkling Water
    • Fresh rosemary sprig

    Place a fresh rosemary sprig into a champagne flute or tall glass.
    Pour Stirrings® Peach Bellini Mixer over the top of the rosemary, and top with the lemon-flavored sparkling water. Delicious!

  • Father's Day

    We believe that life’s little luxuries can be found in everyday pleasures. With our busy schedules and attempts at balancing work and family, sometimes the simple things are the ones that make us smile the most. With that in mind, we suggest an approach to entertaining for Father’s Day that celebrates a return to the classics - just like Dad’s favorite pair of jeans, his vintage watch and special chair.

    Bring back fond memories by creating a menu of signature dishes that use cherished family recipes. Cooking together is half the fun, so gather up family and friends, roll up your sleeves, and get ready for a night that is all about Dad!

    COCKTAILS

    While Dad may reach for his favorite brew while watching the game, this event should be marked with something a little more special. A refreshing summer cocktail, the traditional mojito gets a little kick with the additional of ginger for this new Stirrings® recipe. To make a Stirrings® Ginger Mojito, combine Stirrings® Mojito Mixer with rum and ginger ale.

    Younger family members can have a mocktail made in the same spirit as Dad’s drink. To make a Stirrings® Ginger Mojito Spritzer, put Stirrings® Mojito Mixer in a tall glass with top with ginger ale and garnish with mint.

    FOOD

    Give your grillmaster the night off on his special day and bring the action back into the kitchen so the whole family can be together. For creative menu ideas that are family friendly and easy-to-make, we turned to Margaret Zakarian, restaurateur and wife to famed chef and Food Network star, Geoffrey Zakarian. When the entrepreneur and marketing executive isn’t at one of her New York restaurants – The Lambs Club and The National – she’s in the kitchen with her young children preparing healthy and delicious food the whole family can enjoy.

    While cooking for a chef might sound daunting, Margaret relies on some simple recipes adapted over the years that never fail to impress. This year Father’s Day at the Zakarians will include a menu of Grape Focaccia, Great Green Salad, Margaret’s Roast Chicken and Chocolate Toast.

    DECOR

    For a casual dinner of salad and roast chicken at home, you can forget the fancy table settings and décor. Instead focus on creating the mood with music for your Father’s Day party. Curate a playlist that includes classic tunes by his favorite musicians. What better way to salute Dad than with songs by some of the great performing artists of all time!
