Happy Hour: Citrus and Spice

Aug 3, 2010

Since it’s Recess, and Recess is the perfect occasion for light afternoon drinking, I figured, why not have an extra Happy Hour this week?  Plus, I really love this dress and wish I could think of a good reason to buy it.

Nothing says Summer like a yellow dress except, maybe, a frozen citrus cocktail.  So if you intend to gather for a meal al fresco, throw on a sunshine colored frock and sip a lemon scented cocktail.  I promise, it will make those hot August days a bit more palatable.

Nanette Lepore Saloon Gal Dress (ShopBop, $298)

Frozen Ginger Lemon-Drop 

Ingredients

Serves 8.
Lemon juice (about 1/4 cup), for coating glass rims
Superfine sugar, for coating glass rims
Frozen Ginger Lemonade
2 to 4 cups vodka
Lemon zest curls, for garnish

Directions

Dip rims of glasses in lemon juice and then in sugar. Pour 3/4 cup frozen ginger lemonade into each glass, and top with 1/4 to 1/2 cup vodka (to taste). Serve immediately garnished with a lemon curl.
