There’s nothing wrong with a cold beer on a hot day but sometimes you’ve got to change shit up. Don’t let summer slip by without sipping on this refreshing son of a bitch. Plums, plucots, pluots, use whatthefuckever you can find. Any of these sweet ass stone fruits will work. Level up your libations, motherfucker. 



makes 2 drinks

2 plums or similar sized stone fruit

6 sprigs fresh thyme

4 ounces gin

2 tablespoons lemon juice

1-2 teaspoons agave or other liquid sweetener*


splash of tonic or soda water**

Cut the plums up into bite-sized pieces. Leave the skin on, don’t overthink this shit. Thrown them in a jar or large glass with a lid. Add the tiny ass branches of thyme, gin, lemon juice, sweetener, and a handful of ice to the jar and throw on the lid. Shake the ever-living fuck out of it until the ice smashes the fruit pieces and everything looks banged to hell. Strain out all the big chunks of fruit and thyme and pour the remaining drink into some glasses over ice. Everything should be all plum colored and looking fancy. You can drink this beautiful bastard as is but feel free to add a couple splashes of tonic if that’s you’re shit.

*If your fruit is sweet enough you can just leave this shit out. Do whatever tastes right to you.

** Optional but add this if you like your drinks to have a little less bite.


The best way to eat oatmeal: Breakfast Oatmeal Parfait layered with Banana, Strawberries and topped with Mango, with a fruit plate of Purple Angelina Plums, red and white Nectarines and Forelle Pears. 

I love oatmeal parfaits because they’re so simple to make: just cook the oatmeal as usual, and then split it into as many layers as you’d like, layering fruit in between. I love the combination of mango, strawberry and banana because the mango is so juicy and sweet, the strawberry is slightly sour and the banana has a mellow sweetness that rounds everything out.
