what a spring it was—one like we’ve never really seen. but we’re still here, together. kinda amazing, really. as a little distraction, i thought i’d do something a little different today. for my regulars, you know that every fridays with oscar, we put together our favorite meal and cocktail of the week for you. so today, i thought i’d round up my top 3 favorite cocktails and outfits from this past spring. ’cause sometimes everyone just needs a drink. so here’s to you, and here’s how to make a damn good cocktail.
much like the recipes today, my outfit is simple and comfortable. casual at its best. i love graphic tee shirts and this one is fun with colorful typography. to play on the colors of my tee, i have a bright orange cardigan and my orange-y suede d’Orsay flats are back in action to add symmetry to my pop of color.
- 1/3 Gin
- 1/3 Campari
- 1/3 Sweet Vermouth
Stir the ingredients together with ice and strain into a glass, or serve on the rocks.
Garnish with an orange peel.
i am dressing for the occasion today, forgoing my typical casual friday ootd for a shirt dress. even though i am staying put, how nice it is to wear a neutral spring dress. it’s a sunny warm spring day. i have the doorway to the porch open and there’s a lovely light breeze flowing in and my easter decor brightens up my home and table.
- 2 oz Vodka
- 4 oz Grapefruit Juice
- Lemon or lime wedge
today’s outfit is all about casual comfort. favorite outfits are like comfort food to me and y’all know i love a graphic tee! a few weeks ago, i wrote about how to style a graphic tee. this graphic tee (old similar here) sets the stage with its pink elephants. but i like to elevate my look by pairing it with something like a blazer or cardigan. so today i couldn’t resist pairing it with a navy sweater blazer (old similar here) with pink piping.
- 1 1/2 oz Tequila
- 1/2 oz Simple Syrup
- 1 oz Fresh Lime Juice
- 1/2 oz Midori
combine ingredients in a cocktail shaker and shake with ice. pour into ice filled, salt rimmed glasses.
