Thirsty Thursday: Ginger Salty Dog + Valentine’s Gift Refresher + Loving Lately

Hope y’all are having a great week!  Came across this cocktail the other day, and can’t wait to make it.  I love anything with a salted rim.  Enjoy!
Ginger Salty Dog
(Found it here.)
Servings: 2
1 Grapefruit, freshly squeezed, rind reserved
Coarse Salt, to rim the glass
3oz Vodka
1 1/2oz Ginger Simple Syrup
Run the grapefruit rind along the rim of the glasses, then dip the rim of each glass into a saucer filled with salt.
In a cocktail shaker, combine the vodka, grapefruit juice, ginger simple syrup, and ice.  Shake until cold, then strain into ice-filled glasses.
For Ginger Simple Syrup
Makes about 1 1/2 Cups
1/4lb Ginger, peeled and thinly sliced (about 3/4 cup)
1 cup Sugar
1 cup Water
Bring ginger, sugar and water to a simmer in a small heavy saucepan over medium-low heat, stirring until sugar has dissolved, then gently simmer, uncovered, 30 minutes.
Strain through a sieve and reserve ginger to make candied ginger, then cool to room temperature.
Today is the last day to order from Nordstrom if you want it to arrive before Valentine’s Day with standard free shipping on many selected items.  In case your significant other needs some ideas, send them here.  If ordered by midnight, most of these items should arrive before Valentine’s Day.

Such a pretty Striped Top from Anthropologie.  Tried it on the other day, and for fit, it runs a little big.  I would still order your regular size because I think it’s the style of how this top is supposed to fit.
This new Clare V Clutch color is perfect for Spring!
I know I post a lot about my favorite bright lip colors.  If you’re looking for a pretty neutral one, I love this Nylon Nude one.  A subtle hint of color.
Happy Sipping!
