Happy Hour: Beer-garitas and Cotton Blouses

Jun 28, 2013

With Independence Day on the horizon, you may be in search of a crowd=pleasing cocktail that can be made in large quantities to serve party guests.  These gourmet Beergaritas from Piece, Love and Cooking are such a cocktail.

Beer margaritas are refreshing, infinitely sippable and can be made in a variety of flavors.  I’m partial to blood orange or clementine flavored ones, but lime is the most popular.

Swiss Dot Henley ($45)

I like breezy cotton shirts for family barbecues.  The weather out West is warm during the day and cool at night, so the shirts allow for layering.  They’re also washable, which is important when you gorge yourself on barbecue with reckless abandon.

I also like this structured tunic from DvF and this Theory henleyThis eyelet tunic is great if you’re looking for a longer length.  And if you need something sleeveless, I like the relaxed look of this shirt.

Want something in a print?  Maybe something you could also wear to work?  This Rebecca Taylor paisley top is nice, and it would look lovely tucked into a pencil skirt.  This Tory Burch tunic would be great with jeans on a casual Friday.

Plus size? I like this navy cotton tunic and this dotted blouse. Petite? This simple voile utility shirt is a good basic.

Happy Hour

    Similarly, micheladas are basically beer bloody marys, and they’re delicious for summer!

    We just call them beeritas – fewer syllables. They are yummy, but deceptively hard-hitting, if you aren’t careful and/or if whoever is making them has a heavy hand with the tequila.
