Happy Hour: A Belated Cinco de Mayo


Rachel Roy Drape Tulip Dress (ShopBop, $595)

This dress reminds me a bit of a serape with it’s colorful striped print.  I also love the draped skirt, good for pear shaped people.   I, however, would add a real leather belt in either red or black.  And also a shoe that doesn’t make it look like you have cloven hooves instead of feet.

Speedy Chihuahua 


3 lime wedges
salt for rimming glasses
ice cubes
4 fluid ounces of white tequila
1 fluid ounce orange flavored liqueur (such as cointreau)
2 limes, juiced
8 fluid ounces grapefruit juice
3 splashes club soda


1.  rub a lime wedge around the rims of 3 margarita glasses, and dip each glass rim into salt.  place ice cubes into each glass.

2.  mix together the tequila, orange liqueur, lime juice, and grapefruit juice into a pitcher, and pour into the glasses over the ice.  add 1 splash of club soda to each glass and serve.

Despite the fact that it’s named for a small, yippy dog, this cocktail is really delicious.  It’s also perfect for a post Cinco de Mayo celebration. Tequila and grapefruit juice, yay!

    That dress is completely amazing!! And even though I did drink a little too much tequila last night, that drink still sounds delish. ­čÖé
