#30DaysOfBurgers: Cobb-Style Burgers

This mile-high burger, inspired by my favorite salad, is rich and refreshing at the same time. Crisp lettuce, creamy blue cheese, smoky bacon, ripe tomato, avocado and red onion get piled atop a juicy patty on a toasted brioche bun. Hungry yet? -Rachael Ray

I Heart Watermelon Cocktails

Written on June 13, 2013 at 12:00 pm , by

Pink cocktails are my guilty pleasure. They simultaneously appeal to my inner girly-girl and taste a-maz-ing, and yet, I rarely order them in public. After bartending many years ago on the opening night of the first Sex and the City movie and making over 200 Cosmopolitans, I don’t think I (or any other bartender for that matter) can look at a pink drink in the same way. That being said, I do make an exception for watermelon cocktails. Juicy sweet and irresistibly fresh, watermelon–in juice or puree form– is like putting summer into a glass. So when there’s a watermelon cocktail on a menu, you better believe I’m gonna order it, but since that can get expensive, here’s a few of my favorite watermelon drinks that you can make at home.

Watermelon Quencher

This lovely libation from our Editor-in-Chief, Lauren Purcell, and her sister, Anne, will put smiles on everyone’s faces. Use a couple drops of red food coloring to tint the sugar-salt mixture for a colorful cocktail rim.

Watermelon-Plum Sangria

Watermelon-Plum Sangria

Two kinds of plums and a half of a watermelon is all you’ll need for this thirst-quenching sip. Use a melon baller to scoop balls out of the watermelon, then plop ‘em into your pitcher. How easy is that?!

Melon Patch Champagne Cocktail

Melon Patch Champagne Cocktail

From our “Year of Champagne Cocktails” recipe collection, this June-inspired sparkler combines slightly sweet watermelon, botanical-infused gin and savory rosemary to create a crisp, clean and ultra-refreshing concoction.

Watermelon Mint Cooler

Mint and lime heighten the cooling and refreshing factors in this 4-ingredient cocktail. Make it by the pitcher for the easiest signature party cocktail ever!

#30DaysOfBurgers: Hearty Paprika Burger

Pepper lovers will go crazy for these super seasoned burgers! The patties are flavored with dried ones and topped with roasted ones. Then to cool things down, there’s tangy sour cream, lettuce, pickles and red onion piled high on a potato roll. Talk about a lot of bang for your bite! -Rachael Ray

Is the saying true: Quality over quantity? You better believe it when it comes to this Club Burger Slider with Avocado-Ranch Dressing. The crunch of the whole wheat bread “buns” paired with the ooze of the homemade dressing is so irresistible you’ll want two!

A Better Burger

 

 

We cut this guilty pleasure sandwich down to size by cutting the calories, but not the flavor. To healthify this burger, we added flavor-boosting shiitake mushroom and nixed sodium-busting bottled sauces for flavor-packed tomato paste or chiles in adobo sauce. Pump up the protein and keep the carbs in check by stacking two patties on top of each other and not supersizing the bun too!
