This Tuesday (July 10th) is National Piña Colada Day! It is arguably my favorite national holiday surrounding a frozen cocktail. Even if you are not lucky enough to be relaxing oceanside or poolside, you can still enjoy a delicious and authentic piña colada and other tropical frozen cocktails in our very own New York City (unless nitro cold brew is more your summertime style). Here are some places you can visit on National Piña Colada Day and beat that oppressive summer heat:
I love hosting adult-y parties in our apartment. This past Thanksgiving, we hosted a “Friendsgiving” at our place, and had some friends over and we all stuffed our faces with some yummy Thanksgiving delicacies. But my point of pride from the event was the bar setup. I had recipes for at least ten unique cocktails requiring all different types of spirits (from Mezcal, my current fave, to gin, vodka, and bourbon), juices/mixers (cranberry, grapefruit, apple, ginger beer, lemon, lime), syrups (I got fancy with my honey and regular simple syrup, y’all), bitters, and garnishes (thyme, oranges, cherries, limes, apples). The drinks ranged from a smoky grapefruit flavor profile to a honey-lemon bourbon cocktail and cranberry mules. Yummy.
Instagram-friendly and locally-famous food market, Smorgasburg, just opened their newest location this past weekend! Located in Soho at Varick and Canal Street, this gravel lot-turned-market is termed Smorg Square.
The space is much smaller than the original Williamsburg and Prospect Park Smorgasburg locations. Only 20 vendors will be serving up tasty sweet and savory treats every week. But not to fret, some of the most popular and photo-ready establishments have claimed their booths in Soho, including John’s Juice, Big Mozz Sticks, and Ramen Burger. The full list of food vendors include:

Happy National S’mores Day, Y’all!
If you’re like me and the summertime brings back childhood memories of family camping, fire pits, and frisbee, then the idea of a s’more right now is pretty exciting. However, if you are also like me and live in an apartment with no fire pit or fireplace, then s’mores have probably been off the menu for a while. Luckily, s’mores are actually pretty easy to make in an apartment! In addition to the normal ingredients, all you’ll need is a broiler, baking sheet, and some nostalgia.
