Cheers to the upcoming summer! I am thrilled to reintroduce my readers to one of my favorite child-friendly beverage companies, Tickle Water. My favorite characteristic of Tickle Water is that it is perfect for small hands, meaning that it will be ideal for my daughter to bring with her to school and activities. Her favorite is the watermelon and green apple. She calls the Watermelon flavored water “owl bubbles.” It is so cute when she laughs after each sip. We enjoy Tickle Water together during the afternoon while at our pool. The size is also compact and lightweight for bringing to the beach. The tickly taste is so refreshing!
Thinking about what healthy snacks to bring to the beach? Whether you have or have not yet taking a class at one of Tracy Anderson’s Hamptons studios, you must try her delicious smoothies and USDA certified organic protein bars that will be available at all Golden Pear Cafe locations.
Order one of Tracy Anderson’s freshly made smoothies (mixed with her patented protein powder) as well as her latest all-organic Ultimate CLEAR Bars. Tracy Anderson’s smoothie menu will provide options for pre/post-workout, detoxification, and weight loss. Each Smoothie is gluten-free, fructose-free, non-GMO, and made with organic ingredients.
If you admire the comforting taste of chai with its powerful essence of fresh spices, Dona Chai would surely become a staple in your kitchen. I first discovered Dona Chai just over a month ago. It was love at first sip, I just had to have more. It took quite a feat of strength to resist enjoying the chai, either iced or hot, on a daily basis. I prefer an iced chai during the mid afternoon anytime of year, but always appreciate a piping hot cup of chai in the morning.
Grindstone Coffee & Donuts has satisfied Sag Harbor‘s long-term doughnut craving. After opening just over a month ago, Grindstone has spoiled the quaint, commuter village with a top quality sweet treat paired with exceptionally smooth San Francisco-based coffee. The business is thriving, with 1,300 doughnuts being churned out daily during the weekdays and over 2,200 purchased on Saturdays and Sundays.
The popularity of doughnuts created by owner, Kyle Shanahan, comes from a 48-hour-proof brioche-style dough that has a complex, yeasty flavor. Cage free eggs from upstate New York, Hudson valley five acres farms milk, unbromated and unbleached King Arthur are used to create the sweet and savory doughnuts. View Post
This summer, I combed the Hamptons to find the most mouthwatering lobster rolls that everyone must try before Labor Day. I tasted, I rated, and now after trying over two dozen lobster rolls this season from various restaurants and catering companies, I have carefully narrowed it down to seven. Below are my personal favorite signature seaside rolls stuffed with lobster meat from Sag Harbor to Montauk. Honorable mentions will also be noted.
