Wind Down After Work With These Refreshing Rum Cocktail Recipes

August 26, 2015 1:18 pm

Rough day at work? One sip of these delicious rum cocktails will surely help you unwind, whisking you away to your favorite Caribbean beach. They're easy to prepare, too, requiring only fruit, sugar, mint, and of course, rum. (We suggest adding a little umbrella to get the full effect.)

Strawberry Mint Mojito [California Strawberries]
This fizzy pink cocktail is imbued with the sweet tang of strawberries, while a mint-infused simple syrup ups the refreshing mint flavor.

Rum Punch [Food & Wine]
Hosting a party? This rum punch comes together quickly, and it's easily multiplied to serve more people. To prevent the punch from becoming diluted from ice cubes, the recipe suggests nesting the punch bowl in a larger bowl of ice.

Frozen Pineapple Daiquiri [Chow]
Instead of ice cubes, this recipe calls for one pound of frozen pineapple chunks. The tartness of lime juice cuts the sweetness from the simple syrup.

Is your go-to rum cocktail listed above? If not, tell us the recipe for your favorite!

Clutter Cramping Your Style? Here’s How to Get It Under Control!

August 12, 2015 11:52 am

So you might not be the neatest person in the world, but that doesn’t mean that you have to deal with clutter cramping the style in your apartment. There are a number of smart, simple ways to de-clutter your space without spending hours cleaning every day. Here are just a few tips for managing the mess.

  • Think function, not fashion. Sure, that matching furniture set might look great, but that doesn’t mean that it actually works in the room. Having too large furniture (or even too much furniture) is a surefire way to make a room look cluttered. Downsize to maximize your space.
  • Create a place for everything. Go through your home and make a note of everything that doesn’t have its own designated space, from the stack of mail to your everyday beauty products. Invest in small bins or drawer organizers where you can toss things to keep them out of sight.
  • Add shelving. Keep things off of the floor by adding shelving anywhere that clutter frequently accumulates. Add attractive bins or boxes that you can put things in.
  • Spend a few minutes. Take a few minutes before bed each night to make one final sweep of your home, putting things away and getting organized. Waking up to a tidy house will make you want to get in the habit of de-cluttering.
