Happy Hour: Curacao Bound


Robert Rodriguez Drape Floral Dress (Bergdorf’s, $565)

With the end of August rapidly approaching, I find myself in the doldrums.  Have I really done enough with my Summer?  Have I enjoyed the warm weather to the fullest?  Of course not.  I work for a living.  

Perhaps a cocktail dress with a hint of Caribbean flair (and the accompanying cocktail) will brighten my spirits.  (Pun not intended, but it stays.)

Absinthe Curacao Frappe

1 part Pernod Absinthe
½ part Hiram Walker Orange Curacao
½ part Lemon Juice
1 part Orange Juice

Shake ingredients over ice and strain into a coupe filled with crushed ice. Garnish with a thin orange slice, if you’re feeling fancy.
