Happy Hour: Blackberry Bramble
Apr 19, 2013
Despite the rain in the East and the snow in the West, I’m convinced that it must be spring somewhere. So I decided to post a delicious warm weather cocktail, just in case someone out there has a sunny day they want to enjoy.
This is the Blackberry Bramble created by the editor of Crepes of Wrath (photo is hers as well). It combines a berry-infused syrup, gin, lemon juice and club soda for a fizzy, fun cocktail perfect for sipping on a patio or at a barbecue. And if you’re allergic to gin, as I am, swap in vodka instead.
But what to wear?
This dress is perfect for a weekend barbecue or rooftop dinner party. I’d hike it up an inch or two and add a brown leather belt where the cinch is.
Prefer something with a sleeve? This Michael Kors dress is adorable (comes in plus and petite). I also like this tonal-grey Alexander Wang dress. And if you need something under-$50, try this ING dress.
Not feeling the stripes? I also love this trapeze-cut dress from French Connection is very poolside Palm Springs. I also like this verdant ikat dress. This printed t-shirt dress is nice too, and my favorite is this strapless watercolor-print dress from Parker.
Have a great weekend! See you on Monday.
