Cocktail Hour: The Four Diamonds Strawberry Frozen Cocktail

Four Diamonds Frozen Cocktail 3

Summer is finally here which means its time to mix up some frozen cocktails! Last year I took a trip to the Dominican Republic and fell in love with a frozen drink called the Four Diamonds which was served at the resort where I stayed. This rum based cocktail is mixed with strawberries, coconut, Irish cream and ice. I probably shouldn’t admit this but it’s SO good I pretty much inhaled several of these a day during my stay and loved the drink so much I convinced the bartender to give me the recipe! Now I’m sharing it with you! This drink is both fruity and sweet and totally tastes like a tropical vacation…no passport necessary! I’m sure you’ll love it as much as I do. Scroll down for the recipe. Happy Summer!

Luckily, One Kings Lane recently shared a tour of their new Studio on its blog and just as expected, its chock full o …

48 Hours in San Francisco 24 copy

Last month I took a super quick trip to San Francisco for a one day conference and padded on a tiny bit of extra time so that I could see the city and explore. I’d only been to San Francisco once before for a business trip a number of years ago but didn’t get to see much. This time around, even though I was there for just two full days, I made the most of every second of my free …

Plus water helps boost metabolism, aids digestion and is just good for your body overall. So even if it’s ju …
