Happy Hour: A Vodka Citrus Cocktail

Mar 23, 2012

It’s sunny and warm here in the nation’s capital, and I am loving it.  The light humidity that’s crushing my coif, not so much, but the rest of it is awesome.  And it’s sunny days like today that make me want a drinkable cocktail for al fresco drinks on the rooftop patio with friends.

And this vanilla citrus cocktail sounds like the perfect solution.

Vanilla Citrus Cocktail

Makes 2 cocktails

4 ounces fresh grapefruit juice
3 ounces vodka
1/4 vanilla bean
1 ounce lemon juice
1 tablespoon lemon zest
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 lemon zest spirals for garnish

For the rest of the recipe, please head over to the Whole Foods blog.  I promise that you will not forget it.

Maggie London Two-Tone Sleeveless Dress (Nordstrom, $128)

This dress is as bright and vibrant as they come.  It would be good for a casual wedding, a dinner date or an event like Gold Cup.  I’d add a stack of bangles or a pair of ornate earrings.

Happy Hour

The Find: A Striped Tee

Without question, the most worn item in my wardrobe is a black-and-white striped tee. I wear it in winter under sweaters, in spring with white jeans, in summer with black shorts. I’ve been wearing the same one for years (it’s the best). But they don’t make it anymore. So here are some options for replacement.
