Hello! This stint in self-isolation has taught me that there is a whole lot more than going out to the bars… So, in the meantime, I’ll just be drinking at home. Lol, this past weekend while Johnny and I were binging on Community (Hilarious) and Animal Crossing (So fun) he made us a very simple but delicious mixed drink that I can totally picture us enjoying on my balcony once it’s nice and warm out.
Unfortunately, it will be a while before we can revisit our favorite stomping grounds with our friends to drink summery drinks on the patio. But, for now, a White Claw Lemonade will do just fine:
During our TV marathon, Johnny mixed one lime White Claw with a healthy splash of Newman’s Own Virgin Lemonade. I always have a carton or two of this lemonade in my apartment because it’s really tart, which is what I prefer. When combined with the fizzy carbonated lime Claw, it made a boozy Sprite and it went down way too easily.
Perfect for making a pitcher to share on the porch or to sip on while you fish in your Animal Crossing village, I think Johnny’s “hard lemonade” will be a quarantine staple in our apartment. Yum! 😀
What is your favorite boozy drink? How are you virtually interacting with your friends? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah
Hi! If you’re anything like me, then you never say no to a good brunch. Despite almost always being slightly hungover, I revel in a boozy Sunday brunch complete with hearty breakfast food and fifteen mimosas. Well… more like two mimosas but I definitely think I could polish off fifteen of the most delicious mimosa mash up I’ve ever heard of…
Allow me to introduce you to the Lemonade Mimosa. Yes, you heard it correctly. A mouthwatering sweet/tart combination that I just had to read on about when someone posted the recipe on Facebook. And, let me be the first to tell you, the following recipe that can be found on Delish.com sounds… Delish! Take a look and be sure to visit Delish for more food and drink inspiration to spice up your meals!
- 2 tsp. lemon zest
- 1/2 c. sugar
- 1 lemon, thinly sliced, plus a wedge for rimming
- 1 bottle champagne
- 2 c. lemonade or pink lemonade
- In a shallow dish, mix lemon zest and sugar.
- Rim champagne flutes with a lemon wedge and dip in sugar mixture.
- Place one slice of lemon inside each champagne flute, bending if needed.
- Fill flute halfway with champagne and top with lemonade. Serve.
When the weather begins warming up, I need a drink that is crisp and refreshing which is why I usually favor the Moscow Mule. So, what could possibly be better than ice cold lemonade and champagne during a muggy summer morning? The answer is nothing, of course!
Treat your friends to a Sunday morning summer brunch, follow more simple and tasty recipes by Lena Abraham, and you’ll be the hostess with the mostess by the time the second round of Lemonade Mimosas starts being poured!
What is your favorite mimosa flavor? (I love mango!) How do you do Sunday brunch? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah
Hellooooooo! At the beginning of August, I went to my stomping grounds of Elysian Nails for a bit of pampering. My claws were looking jank and they needed filled, cut down, and sharpened desperately. I was also looking forward to changing the color to give one final hurrah to the warm weather before fall begins – it will be here before we know it! Take a look at my New Lemonade Nails and let’s discuss:
I have a punk themed OOTD shoot planned and I loved the idea of bright yellow nails along with the red plaid of the blazer that I’ll be sporting. So, the traffic light yellow was an absolute must. And, on my way to the salon as I pondered what color to get the accent nail, I thought some flamingo pink for a lemonade theme would be adorable. As the cogs started turning, I decided that getting the reverse of the colors on each hand would be even MORE adorable and the rest is history.
Are these nails punk? Lol, not in the slightest. But, damnit, are they cute. The bright colors and the unexpectedness of each hand being different gives me an instant confidence boost and my nail tech definitely did me right. These are the perfect lounge by the pool with a fruity drink in hand nails and they just might be my favorite yet!
What color of nail polish do you have on right now? What is the craziest color that you ever experimented with? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah
