Lavender Arnold Palmer Cocktail

Hope you’re feeling rested and recharged after a short work week. It’s cloudy and rainy in Chicago today, but I’m not mad about it. I’m always a little more productive on gloomy days, I don’t know why. Speaking of productive…I found another use for my *famous* Lavender Simple Syrup. And it’s a winner. This LavenderContinue reading “Lavender Arnold Palmer Cocktail”

Peach Thyme Bourbon Smash

I bought a bunch of peaches to make a grilled peach chicken salad that looked delicious. Really, it does. But then dinnertime rolled around and the idea of 1. cooking and 2. eating a salad seemed like a horrible decision. All I wanted to do was sit in the sun and finish my book clubContinue reading “Peach Thyme Bourbon Smash”

Lavender French 75 Cocktail

Happy Friday, friends. I hope you had a lovely week and are looking forward to a relaxing weekend…maybe with this cocktail (or two). A French 75 combines some of my favorite things: gin and champagne. I am very in to gin and tonics lately, and there is something so lovely about popping a bottle ofContinue reading “Lavender French 75 Cocktail”

Lavender Simple Syrup

Living in 2020 has really upped my cocktail game (and ignited my inner wannabe mixologist). My happy hours very quickly went from trendy cocktail bars to leggings on the couch. So naturally I made the couch my very own trendy cocktail bar. Without a doubt I have made more cocktails in the past 4 monthsContinue reading “Lavender Simple Syrup”

Strawberry Tequila Soda

This cocktail is exactly my mood right now…bright, bubbly and screaming *summer*! It’s July, it’s Friday, it’s a long weekend and I’ve got a fresh Strawberry Tequila Soda in my hands…I have literally zero complaints. To make a great day even better, I’m about to take one of these outside with a book and baskContinue reading “Strawberry Tequila Soda”

Watermelon Ginger Aperol Spritz

I had my very first Aperol Spritz in Italy three years ago and my life has forever been changed. Not to be dramatic or anything. We saw this bright orange drink as the happy hour special all over Florence and were very intrigued. We learned that it’s a common apertif in Italy…and is absolutely delicious.

White Claw Slushies

Have you seen this trend popping up too? I think we’re all so bored with ourselves and have nothing else to do but try out random concoctions. See: pancake cereal and whipped iced coffee. But truthfully, what could be bad about a White Claw slushie? Let me tell you…absolutely nothing. It’s glorious. Refreshing, ice cold,Continue reading “White Claw Slushies”

Pink Lemon Collins Cocktail

My husband and I have been trying out meal delivery kits for a few months now. With being home all day and having to cook so many meals, it’s been nice to have someone else tell us what to make. I honestly was super skeptical about it but have surprisingly enjoyed trying new recipes thatContinue reading “Pink Lemon Collins Cocktail”

Spicy Watermelon Margarita

Anyone else feel like all the days are running together lately? I’ve mixed up Wednesdays with Mondays and Fridays with Tuesdays. And when telling a story everything happened “last week” when it actually happened in March. Truly, there is no rhyme or reason. I’ve found the easiest way to distinguish the first half of theContinue reading “Spicy Watermelon Margarita”
