{Giveaway} Jerk Chicken with Grilled Pineapple Salsa

I have been in full on grilling mode recently. I can’t seem to get enough of recipes made on the grill! So as the end of summer continues to creep closer, I am trying to get in all of the grilling I can. As much as I would love to grill in the colder months, I’m a wimp and know I just won’t stand out in the cold.     I’ve used indoor counter top grills in the past and really wasn’t thrilled with the cooking results — it didn’t seem to heat up enough to get proper grill marks, all of the juices would flow out of the grill making for a very dry protein, and I’d always under or overcook the meat.     So when I was contacted to test out the T-fal OptiGrill as part of T-fal’s OptiGrill Blogger Bash, I had some reservations about if this grill would really live up to expectations.

Sparkling Honey-Ginger Bourbon Lemonade

When I have friends coming to visit, I like to  make a batch of cocktails beforehand so that I have a pre-made refreshment to serve. Lemonade-based drinks are a favorite of mine: I’ve made a Rhuby-Lavender Lemonade as well as a Bourbon-Peach Lemonade in the past.   So to keep my trend going, I decided to make this Honey, Ginger Sparkling  Lemonade with Rosemary and added in some bourbon. (My friends are big bourbon fans, if yours aren’t, vodka would work as an easy substitute). I changed the recipe a bit to fit my tastes, but you can find the original recipe here.   Ingredients: 1/2 cup local honey 1/2 cup water the juice of 5 lemons, plus the zest of 1 lemon the juice of 1 lime 1/4 cup minced ginger 10 full rosemary stalks 2 1-liter bottles of club soda 1 1/2 cups bourbon Ice cubes
