With Independence Day just around the corner, I thought I’d give y’all some fun holiday cocktail recipes a little early (in order for you to prep for your parties!). Enjoy!
“To achieve the “layered” effect of this patriotic pleaser, place a cherry on the inside edge of the shot glass and slowly pour the curacao and then the vodka over said cherry. This will keep the liquors separate and makes for a nice garnish.”
1/2 Part Grenadine
1 Part Blue Curacao
1 Part Vodka
Or an alterative to the Shooter, is The Fourth Martini – “Straight booze. No mixers. Using the cherry method from the first drink, layer equal parts chilled UV cherry vodka (UV is the only brand that makes colorful vodka), Pinnacle whipped cream vodka and, you guessed it, blue curacao, in a martini glass. Sip s-l-o-w-l-y, these suckers will sneak up on you.”
The Firecracker Cocktail
I’m in love with anything spicy, so I’m really hoping I can persuade the hubs to make this fiery tequila cocktail next week!
2 ounces tequila
3 dashes of Hot Sauce
2 small slices of Serrano Pepper
1 ounce Fresh Orange Juice
1/2 ounce Agave Nectar
3/4 ounce Fresh Lime Juice
1/4 ounce Orange Curacao
1 Orange Twist
Place all of the ingredients, except for the garnish, into a cocktail shaker and then fill with ice.
Vigorously shake the mixture for 30 seconds and then strain into a rocks cocktail glass.
Garnish the cocktail with the orange twist; serve immediately.
My latest eye candy…
Okay, so the main reason I may want this coffee table book is that it’s pink.
But it’s also received rave reviews, and I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy!
J.Crew now has all their sale items marked down an extra 30%.
Use code: SUMMER30 at check-out.
Only $21 with SUMMER30 code, and all sizes are currently available.
Received this top in the mail yesterday. Love how you can pair it with any pair of colored shorts, and it’s also super comfy. FYI, it’s also not as see-through as some of their other linen tops.
Only $42 with SUMMER30 code.
A fun pop of color to add to any outfit, for every occasion!
Only $49 with SUMMER30 code.
This is still one of my favorite J.Crew tops. I especially love wearing my bubble necklaces with it.
This top goes on sale at different times, but I’ve never seen it on sale at this low of a price.
Snag one while you can!
Have y’all heard of Warby Parker
? I swear their sunglasses are on anyone and everyone. I’d love to try a pair, but I seriously love them all! I feel like the Everetts
are the most classic, but then I look at all of them, and they’re all so neat. Do any of y’all own a pair?
And the best part? They’re like TOMS, where if you buy a pair, they provide a pair to someone in need. Even more of a reason to buy some!
These flats are the perfect classy shoe, will never go out of style, and the quality will you last for years and years. The above colors are currently on sale. I wish I could own them all!
Love the laid-back style and color of this tunic from Anthropologie.
The perfect throw-on piece all summer long.
I just ordered these the other day, and cannot wait to style them. I feel like there’s a lot going on, but it makes them fun, and they’ll go with so many outfits (nude, brown, black, etc.).
And they’re currently on sale!
I think the sandals would go really well with this dress. And I may be a little biased on what color to choose (Go Tarheels!), but they also have cranberry, lavender, aqua, midnight blue, etc. available.
The dress may seem a little on the short side, but the model is 5’11”.
These bubble necklaces from Baublebar are currently only $15 for a limited time, including free shipping. And if this is your first purchase from Baublebar, you receive a $10 credit, making these necklaces only $5, click HERE for your free invitation.
The girls’ swimming lessons finished up today, so tomorrow we’re taking the day off from the pool.
Long overdue haircuts will be in order!
Hope y’all have a great rest of your Thursday!
