Happy Hour: A Vodka Citrus Cocktail

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.
