Blood Orange Mimosas Blood oranges Blood Orange Blood Oranges squeezed Squeezed Blood Oranges Blood Orange Mimosas Cocktails For The Four Seasons
Hi Folks! Our 2nd cookbook, Cocktails for the Four Seasons, is out and we’re absolutely THRILLED!!!! Some of you may have seen our soft announcement via instagram last week letting you know it had just released, but today we are making it official!! Cocktails for the Four Seasons is about traditional Southern Italian food….Just kidding !(sorry, just had to throw in a very bad/dumb joke!) This book is all about boozy beverages (although some can definitely be made without booze, for a tasty nonalcoholic treat). We’re no mixologists and will never claim to be, but we both have a great appreciation for thoughtfully crafted cocktails.

Our book is broken down into four seasonal chapters and the recipes are a mix of our own personal creations, some classics and a handful of modern twists. We love scratch cocktails so much of our book involves using fresh juices and making your own flavored (mostly herb infused) simple syrups and garnishes. It’s a cute little book that makes great gifts for anytime of the year! Plus it’s small enough to fit into most purses or large pockets….so feel free to travel with it…and we’re not even kidding, ha!

We’re celebrating our new cookbook release by taking advantage of the gorgeous abundant citrus all around us and making simple and delicious blood orange mimosas! We’re also celebrating with a little giveaway!! That’s right, we’re giving away 4 copies of our book today! Just leave a comment in the comments section at the bottom of the post, letting us know what your favorite winter cocktail is… it’s as simple as that! Just make sure to include your email address so we can contact the winners for shipping addresses! The giveaway will end on Friday, Jan 17, at 12pm/pst, so get your comments in asap! We really hope you all love the book as much as we do and can’t wait to see what you think!!

    Anything with champagne is perfect anytime — but during the winter, I feel like I can cozy up with a good bourbon cocktail, like a manhattan or old fashioned.

    • adam Not Specified Not Specified

    Any time of the year I’ll pick a mojito…in summer to refresh and in winter to remind me of warmer and sunnier places.

  7. Lee Not Specified Not Specified

    I love a good bourbon cocktail in the winter!

  8. Alex R Not Specified Not Specified

    Favorite winter cocktail: irish coffee. Not really a cocktail, but does the trick after a snowfall. I clearly need more ideas for cocktails. :)

  9. Lily @ Life, Love, and Cupcakes Not Specified Not Specified

    Congrats on the cookbook! I need to find some blood oranges, because this sounds perfect! I’m slightly obsessed with the san pellegrino blood orange soda and occasionally make a cocktail with it, but I’m sure fresh is even better!

  10. Aleks Not Specified Not Specified

    Hot chocolate fortified with Baileys :) mmm. These blood orange mimosas look great, too.

  11. Abby @ The Frosted Vegan Not Specified Not Specified

    Boozy apple cider, by far!

    oh can’t wait to read the book!! my favorite winter cocktail is milk punch. we usually make a batch when putting up our Christmas tree.

    I’m a sucker for a classic Champagne cocktail or a glass of bubbly topped off with a bit of Poire Williams during the winter–cheers!

  14. Sarah Not Specified Not Specified

    My favorite winter cocktail is hot chocolate with mint Baileys. It’s so relaxing and homey!

  15. Nicole Not Specified Not Specified

    A good hot toddy makes my winter world go round!

  16. jordan Not Specified Not Specified

    i love a hot toddy but i’m also a huge fan of simply heating up some apple cider and throwin’ in some whiskey and cinnamon!

  17. Eileen Not Specified Not Specified

    Ooh, so beautiful! This sounds like the perfect way to drink up the seasonal citrus. I haven’t gotten my hands on any blood oranges quite yet–must go get some soon.

  18. Annie Not Specified Not Specified

    In the winter I love a good Manhattan with fancy cherries.
    I’ve been on the lookout for a good cocktail cookbook and this one looks perfect!

  19. Abbie Florence Not Specified Not Specified

    I am totally down with the “Italian Food diet” :) One of our favorite cocktails for any season is a mimosa. It is my husbands favorite, so a newer version is always a good thing. I’m so happy for you two, and LOVE seeing your creations (except when I am on Pinterest late at night and hungry) Haha! xo Abbie

  20. Jana Not Specified Not Specified

    So hard to pick a favorite winter cocktail… but for Thanksgiving Brunch with friends, we made a “fall old-fashioned” and it was the perfect balance of warmth and holiday cheer: bourbon, maple syrup, apricot liqueur, and bitters. Would love to get my hands on a copy of your cocktail book! It will look perfect on my bar cart at home!

  21. Marilee Not Specified Not Specified

    Oh, what a beautiful color! I’m pinning this

  22. Christine Not Specified Not Specified

  25. Kendra Not Specified Not Specified

    I’ve got to say a lovely spicy gingerbread martini does it for me! Love that spicy goodness!

  26. Shanley Not Specified Not Specified

    I am obsessed with this cider punch with thyme syrup and club soda. Drawn from this recipe: http://www.versesfrommykitchen.com/2011/11/cocktail-recipe-cider-rum-punch.html
    but with less sugar in the thyme syrup, 100% club soda instead of half water, and using spicebox spiced whisky, which is the best thing ever in life, instead of rum.

  27. Lindsey Sampson Not Specified Not Specified

    All about the hard cider. This looks like a delicious mimosa though!

  28. Matt Dillon Not Specified Not Specified

    Moscow Mule is my winter go-to. Especially when I’m soaking in the hot tub.

  29. Sara @ Cake Over Steak Not Specified Not Specified

    Congrats! I think my favorite cocktail will forever be the Moscow Mule. And margaritas.

  30. Elana Not Specified Not Specified

    I still find it confusing that citrus is so abundant in /winter/… Right now I am enjoying a cognac and amaro based cocktail laced with maple syrup and some black walnut bitters (and kissed just a bit with lemon juice). So good I polished off the bottle of Cognac in one week. Oops…

  31. kelly Not Specified Not Specified

    I love a good hot toddy or hot chocolate + mint chocolate Baileys in the winter! Stoked for the new book!

  32. Jillian L Not Specified Not Specified

    Hi ladies and congrats on the new book, that cover is gorgeous!! My favorite winter cocktail is from the (sadly, closed) restaurant, Cyrus. They put out a recipe book that has a warm winter sangria recipe with freshly toasted spices that is just phenomenal, lots of work, but so delicious!

  33. Brittaney Not Specified Not Specified

    My favorite winter cocktail is a winter pimm’s – the cold-weather version of a Pimm’s Cup! There are many different recipes online, but the one I tried in London was made with warm apple cider. Yum!

  34. Emily Not Specified Not Specified

    Love the blog! My favorite winter cocktail has to be an Irish coffee … especially when the house is filled with family ;)

  35. Allison Not Specified Not Specified

    I’m a sucker for a White Russian by a roaring fire.

  37. Allison Not Specified Not Specified

    right now it’s beer. does that count?

  38. Josh Not Specified Not Specified

    But there’s nothing like an Irish Coffee by the fire to warm you up on those really cold days.

  39. Averie @ Averie Cooks Not Specified Not Specified

  43. Jennie Hawes Not Specified Not Specified

    Love my father in-law’s whiskey sours in front of the fire!

  44. Shrazzi Not Specified Not Specified

    Your book looks awesome! My favorite winter cocktail is the Glitter Guide’s Pear Nectar & Thyme Mimosa. You can see it here http://theglitterguide.com/2013/03/29/pop-clink-fizz-pear-nectar-thyme-mimosa/
    Your blood orange mimosas look pretty great too. Thanks for having a giveaway. It’s so exciting!

  45. Hilarion Not Specified Not Specified

    Coming from Florida, warm winter cocktails are a bit harder to consider, but ever since I moved to Oregon I’ve been discovering so many! One of my favorites is a hot toddy made with pear brandy instead, and a local restaurant makes what they call a “Snowplow” which is hot chocolate with rum, Frangelico, Bailey’s and another yummy chocolate liquer (that has conveniently slipped my mind). With drinks like that, living in a colder area ain’t so bad!

  46. LINDA Not Specified Not Specified

    My go to winter cocktail has to be the Spiced Apple Cider with Rum, though since I’ve gotten more mulling spices, it might just become my go to rainy day drink, haha!!

  47. Jen Not Specified Not Specified

    Oh, just give me whiskey, or a happy martini, it doesn’t matter what time of the year it is~

  48. Brittany R. Not Specified Not Specified

    Iade a grapefruit basil martini a while back that was absolutely heavenly, but I bet it would be even more amazing with old orange! Such a fantastic and versatile flavor.

  49. Cindy Merino Not Specified Not Specified

    my favorite winter drink is Blood Oranges Screwdrivers. We have a beautiful blood orange tree that over-produces every other year. This year we only have about 25 blood oranges, but we will use every one!

  50. Caity Sue Treadwell Not Specified Not Specified

    I think Irish Coffee is a must in the winter. Great contest – thanks!

  51. Leslie Long Not Specified Not Specified

    Congratulations on the new cookbook. I read about you girls in California + Home Magazine. The article they wrote about you drew me to your website. I instantly feel in love- your food concepts and the recipes you’ve created are real with rustic charm that I absolutely adore….

    As for a winter- hot chocolate heated up on the stove with a hint of peppermint baileys of course!

  52. Kayla Not Specified Not Specified

    I love spicing up some apple cider with nutmeg, cinnamon sticks, a few cardamon pods, orange zest, cloves, and a spot of whiskey.

  53. Amy Not Specified Not Specified

    I love a good hot toddy!

  54. Sara C. Not Specified Not Specified

    Does ginger beer and bourbon count as a winter cocktail? ‘Cause that’s all I’m drinking these days.

  55. Jasmine Harrison Not Specified Not Specified

    A good Black Russian does me.
    That taste of coffee from the Kahula is a real pick-me-up on a cold winter’s day.

  56. lesley Not Specified Not Specified

    i love bacardi oakheart and coke with lime

  57. Mia Not Specified Not Specified

    Vin brûlé/ Chaud/ guhlwein or boiling cider throwing mulling spices or just star anise.
    When you are sick and feverish, quice decoction ( nuts, raisins, dried fruits, citrus) but that is hard to swallow.

  58. Emily Vizcarra Not Specified Not Specified

    I am a fan of keeping it simple and like adding Makers Mark to warm apple cider and adding a squeeze of lemon.

  59. lisa Not Specified Not Specified

    I am a ‘Hendricks-Gin-and-tonic-girl’ for all seasons.

  62. Susan J Not Specified Not Specified

    I love a Sidecar!

  63. jeanette Not Specified Not Specified

    The Billionaire cocktail from Employees Only is a favorite during the winter months. A Hot Toddy truly warms the spot on those extra cold days; uncomplicated and delicious.

  64. Claudia Not Specified Not Specified

    Favorite drink is Coquito…It’s a traditional Puerto Rican drink enjoyed during the holidays. It’s like Eggnog spiked with Rum! Delicioso!

  69. Stephanie Not Specified Not Specified

    Spiked apple cider!!

  70. Sue-Na Not Specified Not Specified

    Congrats on the new book guys! I’m in love with your first one and I can only imagine that this book will be a great addition to my cocktail roster. I’m always up for trying out adventurous new drinks, but as far as winter cocktails go, my heart still belongs to good ole fashioned mulled wine.

  71. Samantha Kuehne Not Specified Not Specified

    Although I am pregnant currently, I have always been a fan of spiked hot chocolates in the past! :) simple and delicious! Would love this book for when this pregnancy is over!!! :-)

  72. Emily Not Specified Not Specified

    I had a Winter Fizz on New Year’s Eve – delicious! I think it was like a rosemary gin fizz except with prosecco.

  73. Stephen Not Specified Not Specified

    Being more of a traditionalist, my favorite wintertime cocktail is a simple scotch on ice with a splash of soda water. Now if you want to talk about beer, I am definitely down with some delicious, spicy-citrusy witbier!

  74. Michael Geer Not Specified Not Specified

    Champagne and grapefruit is a favorite in the morning to relax.

  81. Susan B Not Specified Not Specified

    Sidecar! Nothing like a classic to warm you in the cold winter months!

  82. Julia D. Not Specified Not Specified

    My current week choice is whiskey sours! Although a hot chocolate with Baileys is a must for sitting by the fire while enjoying a good book. Your cocktail book would be a great one to delve into. Thanks for the opportunity and always the great treats.

  83. MaryB Not Specified Not Specified

    I love a mimosa or a Bloody Mary but when it is extra cold out, a bold cup of coffee with some Bailey’s and some Frangelico is nice!

  84. Fay Not Specified Not Specified

    I love mulled wine – triple sec, cinnamon sticks, orange rinds, and a little bit of honey in a crock pot! Instant Holiday cheer.

  85. Karen Not Specified Not Specified

    I love Moscow Mules anytime of the year! but the name connotes warm fuzzy hats. You can never go wrong with ginger fizz and vodka. Add a tsp. of brown sugar and a lime and the perfect copper mug and you are set.

    Love trying new cocktail recipes!!

  86. Elizabeth Mateo Not Specified Not Specified

    Moscow Mule baby!

  87. Jinie Yang Not Specified Not Specified

    I’m Also a sucker for hot chocolate spiked with Godiva liquor and peppermint schnapps.

  92. Annalynn Shuttleworth Not Specified Not Specified

  94. Georgina Not Specified Not Specified

    Mimosas + herb to cut the sweetness? Get in my belly. Like, yesterday.

  105. Molly Blake Not Specified Not Specified

    Up here in northern Maine a Hot Toddy can not be beat. It is like sitting next to a big pot belly wood stove. Only the stove is a drink and the drink is in your belly.

    This looks delicious!! In the cold winter months I love some hot apple cider with whiskey! Warms you right up :)

  107. Lucy Wang Not Specified Not Specified

  109. Hillary Not Specified Not Specified

    I pretty much always go for a Campari and vodka with a splash of orange juice to keep the flu away. I think I’ll try it with blood oranges next time!

  110. Meg Not Specified Not Specified

    Congrats on the book! I’d love love to win one. I think my favorite chilly weather cocktail is spiked cider. Really can’t go wrong there.

  111. Christie Not Specified Not Specified

    Mulled Apple Cider!

  112. Megan A. Not Specified Not Specified

    I’m always a fan of a sinfully chilled Vodka Martini – but this holiday season I pulled together a Cranberry Mojito sort of cocktail for the family and it was a hit! I can’t wait to get this new book and start shaking things up – you site is just gorgeous, and one of my favorite to visit!

  113. Lisa Not Specified Not Specified

    Living in Florida, we have fresh fruit year round. I LOVE fresh fruit & champagne always makes it taste just that much better!

  115. Dawn Not Specified Not Specified

    I love hot cocoa spiked with chili rum. Can’t wait to see your book in person – looks phenomenal!

  118. Kimberly H Not Specified Not Specified

    I think a margarita with Mexican food can be so refreshing in the winter blahs. We also drink a lot of boozy cocoa this time of year.

  119. Hannah O Not Specified Not Specified

    Margaritas-all day every day :)

  120. Rachel Johnson Not Specified Not Specified

    I have no idea why, as I find this drink to be appropriate year round, but in the winter I especially love drinking extra dirty martinis (shaken, not stirred – with the blue cheese olives if you’ve got ’em). The book looks so wonderful!

  121. Shannan St.Clair Not Specified Not Specified

    I agree with you. Taking advantage of the abundant citrus options available this time of year is the way to go. I LOVE blood oranges so I am going to vote for the Blood Orange Mimosa. Sounds delish! Am going to make/try this weekend.

    Love SFB! Thanks :)

  149. Mary Claire Not Specified Not Specified

    I’m a fan of your blog as a great source of inspiration. This holiday I hosted a cocktail and cookie open house. The Italian cocktail of lemon sorbet and Moscato with muddled mint was a big hit and super easy. I’d love this book for further inspiration for the next party!

  150. Vanessa Not Specified Not Specified

    Bubbles always tickle my fancy…..although, I do love a hot toddie!!

  151. Katie Not Specified Not Specified

    I’ve recently started following your blog, and I love it! I now have a whole new list of recipes to try. My favorite winter cocktail is a whiskey old fashioned. It brings back memories of family gatherings, and the whiskey warms you up on a cold night.

  152. Peggy N Not Specified Not Specified

    A hot toddy is the way to warm up in the winter!

  153. Karen Larsen Not Specified Not Specified

    My favorite festive winter drink for a party is what I’ve heard called a starry night. Our home made limoncello in proseco, with fresh raspberries and lemon peel for garnish.

    My favorite go to drink is a cognac sidecar. The richness of the cognac suits the season, the Grand Marnier adds a lovely sweetness, the brightness of the lemon juice makes it feel healthy :), and we rim the glass with a bit of lemon zest mixed into the sugar.

    In the winter a love some hot chocolate with a little Godiva Liquor!

  156. Debra N Not Specified Not Specified

    I love mixing pomegranite juice with Lillet Blanc and a little soda water. I spear some cranberries if I have them on hand to add a stylish twist. I love your recipes. Congrats on the new book.

  157. Ellen M. Not Specified Not Specified

    Not sure if this is considered a cocktail, but hot chocolate with a shot of peppermint schnapps is awfully good in the winter! Congratulations on the book – it looks delicious!

    Moscow mule!

  159. Shonte' P. Not Specified Not Specified

    I actually never thought about different cocktails for different seasons-I kind of just go on how I feel-lol But my favorite year round cocktail to drink is a mojito. Any flavor will do me just fine, but I typically add some kind of fruit. I guess for the winter, I mostly add berries (blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, etc).

  160. Dhanya Samuel Not Specified Not Specified

    I am a latecomer to the ‘cocktail scene’ but now I am hooked for a lifetime. After a lot of experimenting, I found this perfect winter recipe for ‘hot rum tea’…..a cup in hand, legs tucked underneath and cuddled up on the couch with your love. Life is bliss!

  161. Sian Not Specified Not Specified

    What a lovely post.

    My favorite winter cocktail is probably bailey’s with rich hot chocolate and some peppermint flavored whipped cream. :)

  163. Elizabeth @ hobbylobbyist Not Specified Not Specified

    My favorite winter drinks are hot toddies and scotch on the rocks

  164. Joelle De Roo Not Specified Not Specified

    Personally, a crisp cold Gin n’ Tonic with a slice of Cucumber is my all time favorite for winter. Not sweet and fresh flavors to help you go through the harsh winters of Quebec City in Canada :)

  165. Rayan Garcia Not Specified Not Specified

    So excited about this book! I enjoy your blog so much. My favorite winter drink is definitely a mulled wine cocktail, it fills the entire home with wintery scents :)

  166. Jenny C Not Specified Not Specified

    Congrats on book number 2! I love you blog and all the ideas you have. I love to get a cider sparkling cocktail for the winter.

    Apple cider with some pear nectar, seltzer and whiskey. Mmm…

  167. Brittany Not Specified Not Specified

    Maybe a mojito

  168. Nick Hawes Not Specified Not Specified

    Whatever cocktail I’m drinking at that moment is my favorite.

  169. Francisca Not Specified Not Specified

    In southern Brazil we’re big in celebrating the month on June. I guess there must be some religious event involved, but it’s simply known as junine (as in of june) festival. Since its winter and very cold, theres always a bonfire and wintery food and beverages. As a kid I loved the hot, seasoned wine that even kids could have (with little wine and lots of grape juice, sure) and the plays that would take all night.

  170. Amy S. Not Specified Not Specified

    My favorite winter cocktail/drink is eggnog.

  171. Carolina Not Specified Not Specified

    How fun! The book sounds great!
    My favorite winter cocktail is wassail. Hot beverage with rum, wine, on, apple cider…. Yummy!

  172. Katie Not Specified Not Specified

    I love the book! I’ve been making my own online collection of cocktails, and most of them from Spoon, Fork, Bacon. You’re ahead of me in compiling these great recipes!

    Ok on a sidenote, can I just tell you I’m still drooling over your chocolate chip cookie post! My favorite winter cocktail would have to be a spiced pear martini. It’s so good!

    My girlfriend took me to restaurant where they served a Moscow Mule in the classic copper cup and I enjoyed it so much, I’m seriously considering buying a copper cup just so I could have it all the time!
    It’s especially great for the winter season since the fresh ginger is great for that scratchy throat that creeps around this time of year.

  181. Shut Up & Cook Not Specified Not Specified

    Living in Paris for two months and have been drinking lots of pastis and kir royale…not to mention wine, bien sur, but these look absolutely to die for!!

  182. Bronwyn Not Specified Not Specified

    I love me a good raspberry caprioska, anytime is cocktail time!

  183. Krista Babbitt Not Specified Not Specified

    Our family always has whiskey sours at Christmastime because of all the lovely citrus in season, but we make the mix with a combination of grapefruit, lime and lemon, rather than just lemon. And we garnish with home canned cherries.

  184. Anna P. Not Specified Not Specified

    My favorite winter drink is totally a hot toddy! YUM! Sadly I didn’t get to drink any this winter, due to a bun in the oven! BUT I would totally enjoy your new book for summertime! My husband and I were just talking about learning some new drinks to make, so this is totally perfect.

  185. Maggie Not Specified Not Specified

    I love Irish coffee in the winter!! It is such a decadent dessert/booze combo to warm me up after a meal out, before walking back home through the snow.

  186. Michelle K. Not Specified Not Specified

    Congratulations! I love a good ginger-y hot toddy.

  187. BirtleGirl Not Specified Not Specified

    Love learning new cocktail recipes! They can set the mood for any event! Thinking about signature cocktails for a NYE wedding and I’m sure there are some great ideas in your book!!

  188. Rita Not Specified Not Specified

    My favorite winter cocktail might just be coquito, which was introduced to me only recently by my boyfriend, who is from Puerto Rico. It’s a coconut based drink that’s similar in taste to eggnog (because of the spices), but delicious in its own right. If you haven’t heard of it you should definitely give it a shot!

    I always love trying new things, so can’t wait to read the book. Cheers!

  189. Inkie Not Specified Not Specified

    I just loove chai latte! And when paired with doodley’s it becomes even more delicious. Congarts for your new book!

    – garnish with lavender

    Delicious!

  193. Kearsley Not Specified Not Specified

    An Old Fashioned is a great winter cocktail! But you can’t beat eggnog on the rocks with rum around Christmas! Congrats on the new book – fingers crossed that I’ll win a copy. Cheers! (kearsley@tipsyskipper.com)

  199. Christina Not Specified Not Specified

    I don’t really do cocktails by season. It’s more by what I’m in the mood for. Lately it’s been screwdrivers.

  200. Tahlia Smalczewski Not Specified Not Specified

    When is a cosmo not in season? That is my choice, a close winner to fresh squeezed orange juice and some peach schnapps!
