I am alive. [Spiced Honey Tea + Pops]

One of my many tastings
This summer I had the wonderful opportunity of attending Savor the Central Coast. I had an amazing time sampling the food and wine. I must say I was glad that I wore a free flowing dress that did not restrict my belly. Nothing is worst than having your stomach constricted while you are trying to stuff yourself.

Morning Breakfast: wine, lemon, & Mexican cola

The JUICIEST tasting Strawberry Basil Popsicle

Near the end of the event when I was getting full and tired, I tried the most amazing fall drink. It's sweet, refreshing, and reminds me of the holidays. I immediately became obsessed and recreated it at home. It is best served iced, but you can enjoy it hot if you insist.
