We’re wrapping up our first Frozen Drinks Week on Food Republic. Wasn’t it hot this week? Hope we were able to cool you off a bit with our recipes (did you check out the frozen Dark ‘n Stormy?) mixing tips (remember, too much booze in a spiked popsicle means you’ve got a sad, melty popsicle), gear reviews and stories from the bottom of the blender.

Essential Oil Water Is Our New Favorite D.I.Y. Water. Yes, You Read That Right.

Ever since I posted my easy citrus-flavored seltzer hack, I've been on a bender making great-tasting zero-calorie summer drinks. I get that you don't have to be seen in a bikini, but I do. Besides, more water's good for everyone, especially during bikini season, so I found a way to make water taste better that isn't adding fruit or a lemon slice.

Nobody does noodles, chicharrón and shaved ice like East Village Filipino gastropub Jeepney. Chef and co-owner Tomas Delos Reyes shared his simple recipe for avocado shakes, a spring/summer treat that needs little more than a ripe avocado and a moment of your time.

Hey, guess what? Spring started yesterday. That’s right, you can stop complaining about winter right about now. Spring also means that it’s time to push those dark spirits aside (don't worry, just a little bit). It's more refreshing tipples. Because sunshine and warm weather calls for citrus, gin and — hell, man — maybe even a Pimm’s Cup.

Hey barkeeps! How about a bottled tonic, OK?
Feb 14, 2013 2:03 pm

Here at Food Republic, we love gin. We love when it’s made in England. We love learning fun facts about it too. But mostly, and obviously, we love drinking the stuff — in cocktails or a well-stirred gin and tonic. But it makes us super sad when the tonic is shot out of a gun. Here are five reason's we're all for the banning of guns. Soda guns.

Mango is, to nobody's surprise, a very popular flavor of lassi. Others omit the fruit and add either honey and rosewater or salt and cumin as variations. While Greek yogurt is awesome and deserves every bit of hype it gets, regular, preferably homemade yogurt is the way to go here — Greek's too thick to sip through a straw, something you'll want to do.

Hangover Lunch: Hey, Ahhmigo!

Breaking news: Weird green water helps a tiny bit
Nov 16, 2012 12:31 pm

Ahhmigo, like many beverages you can buy nowadays, boasts 64 ingredients. Rather than artificial colors, sweeteners or any of that other great stuff, those 64 things are all some form "fruits, sprouts, grasses, vegetables, flowers, medicinal mushrooms, sea plants and unique herbs." Medicinal mushrooms? Okay!
