With the Kentucky Derby being this weekend, along with Cinco de Mayo on Sunday, I thought I’d bring you two cocktails for the weekend. The Cinco de Mayo cocktail will be featured on tomorrow’s post. Today, I bring you the Brown Derby (I found it in a 2009 LA Times article).
1 ounce Woodford Reserve bourbon
1 ounce grapefruit juice
½ ounce clover-honey syrup (1 part water, 1 part clover honey)
In tin-on-tin shaker, add freshly squeezed grapefruit, then honey and bourbon.
Shake and strain into chilled cocktail glass (ideally, a 5 ½-ounce Champagne coupe).
The girls and I attended a princess tea party that their ballet studio at the Y hosted, this past Saturday. To say they had a blast is an understatement.
And the girls who played the princesses were the sweetest.
I’m not a huge fan of samples, because I stay true to what I always enjoy.
But Marc Jacobs Daisy and Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb came with my Nordstrom package the other day, and I couldn’t be happier.
Flowerbomb is one of my favorite daytime scents!
As you know I hit up the Tory Burch sale this past weekend, but I wanted to share this ensemble with you. The J.Crew Striped Top and J.Crew Citron Chino Shorts are currently on sale.
Use code: SPRINGBEST to receive 25% off your entire purchase.
Later on that day, I switched to this J.Crew Boatneck Striped Top because it arrived in the mail, and I loved it so much I had to throw it on. Such a fun neutral for this time of year!
If you’re on Instagram, you should try this Photo a Day fun, for May!
This was my first “Photo of the Day” for May.
1. I Bought This. These Tory Burch Sunnies.
I already have them in tortoise, but liked them so much, that I got them in black too.
Hope y’all have a terrific Thursday!
