I don’t drink at home often, but on a sunny summer day, the idea of sitting on the patio with a cocktail is just too enticing. For an easy, refreshing cocktail, this four-ingredient drink is the way to go. It’s also a great use for the flavored seltzer water that most of us have in our refrigerators.
I like this Oola vodka because it’s smooth and not terribly expensive. We’re also a big fan of the Kirkland Signature vodka, the rumor is that it’s Grey Goose in Costco packaging. I’m not sure I buy that, but if you’re having a party, you can’t beat the price.
Add ice to a glass (these Anthropologie glasses are my favorite), then add 1.5 shots of vodka, and 1 shot of St. Germain elderflower liqueur. Then, pour in some seltzer and add a lime wedge.
It’s such a simple cocktail, but I think the St. Germain gives it a bit more pop. One of my girlfriends makes a similar drink but with a splash of champagne instead of the seltzer.
So what does one wear for a casual cocktail on a Friday night? I like a relaxed jersey dress.
Lou & Grey Mediamix Dress ($79.50 + 50%-off with code FLASH)
The Lou & Grey line from LOFT has some lovely relaxed summer dresses. I like this simple tank dress with a racerback. They have a number of lovely dresses including this short-sleeve swing dress and this sleeveless back pleat dress in pink. I recently bought this signature-soft swing dress in fiery orange. I’ll let you know how it is when it arrives. But with this 50%-off sale running, I couldn’t resist picking up a couple of dresses for warm weather.
