… this summery, mint watch from Anthropologie
Nothing says summer like sun, BBQ and refreshing cocktails. A favourite of mine is the Pimm’s Cup- a nice mix of sweet liqueur, spicy ginger and cucumber freshness.
I made a spin on the traditional Pimm’s Cup by adding a sliced orange, chopped up strawberries and a lime to a pitcher filled with a full bottle of Pimm’s No. 1 liqueur and letting it stand for 3-4 hours. I wanted to fruit flavours to soak into the alcohol and add a tangier taste.
After letting the fruit soak, rather than adding gingerale right away, I made each drink on demand. There is nothing worse than a fizz-less, watery cocktail! Keep gingerale and ice handy, mix it into a cup with the fruit-infused Pimm’s and add some cucumber and mint garnish.
I have gotten heel-lazy since I moved to San Francisco. Maybe it’s the hills or the casual west coast fashion, but I opt for flats on almost every occasion. Yes, I do walk almost everywhere in the city and my feet love the comfort of flats, but I am definitely missing out on some hot heel style!
I am vowing to ease my way back into heels this summer. I’m beginning the transition with wedges and 1.5-2″ heels. These Lucky Brand wedge sandals I bought yesterday are really light and comfortable:
