The Happy Hour: Mellow Yellow

Jun 18, 2010

I’m not much of a drinker because a) you can’t do a keg stand in a dress and b) I’m clumsy enough sober.  But I do enjoy a good cocktail.  Thus, I’ve decided to create a new post called the Happy Hour. 

Each Friday, I will post a cocktail dress and the recipe of a corresponding libation. This week, I’m embracing the sunshine and Summer with a yellow hued dress of smooth silk and an effervescent cocktail that’s perfect for an evening on the patio.

Thakoon Draped Tie Dress (Net-a-Porter, $762)

The St. Germain Cocktail

2 Parts Brut Champagne

1.5 Parts St. Germain

2 Parts Club Soda or Sparkling Water

Fill a Tall Collins Glass with Ice.  Add champagne, and then St. Germain, then Club Soda.  Stir vigorously. Garnish with a lemon twist making sure to squeeze the essential oils into the glass.
