Happy Hour: A Pantry Staple Cocktail

Apr 10, 2020

Like many people we’re down to one grocery run every 10 days.  So ingredients for fun cocktails are not a priority, but it feels like they should be.  Here’s a cocktail you can make with things from your cupboards.

Simply Whisked provides the formula for the perfect jam cocktail.  (Yes, jam. Yes, the kind you put on toast.)  The recipe gives you the ratios to make a jam cocktail using whatever jam, liquor, liqueur, and citrus juice (lemon or lime works best) you have around.

I had fig preserves from Trader Joe’s (put it on a bacon, egg and cheese sandwich with arugula and it will change your life), so I cooked up a fig, Bulleit Bourbon, Grand Marnier, and lemon cocktail.  I liked it straight, but when I mixed the concoction into black tea and served it over ice, it really soared.

Get ready kids, tie-dye has become the style ambassador of the Covid-Quarantine.  You can go with a tie-dye sweatsuit, like all the cool kids, or something a bit more subtle that you’ll actually wear again.

Enter this simple t-shirt dress from 525 America.  Pretty, on-trend, and doesn’t look like a pint of Wavy Gravy.  Plus-size? I like this dress from Lane Bryant.

I also found this Cloth & Stone dress that’s work appropriate and more of a batik.  And I LOVE this easy black and white, tie-dye stripe dress from Karen Kane.

Like the tie-dye look but want something classic enough you could wear it next year? This top from Sea and this one from Ulla Johnson caught my eye.

    This is so timely. I adore tie-dye and ordered a brightly colored sweatshirt. But when I tried it on, I thought, “am I really going to wear this after the pandemic?” I haven’t yet decided.

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.

Three Outfits I’ll Wear All Spring

When I started this blog, influencers still re-wore clothes. There were no haul videos filled with the latest from Shein before it winds up in a beach in Ghana poisoning the planet. There were no sponsored campaigns delivering fresh wardrobes each month. The content machine doesn’t like reruns.

The Find: Like a McCall’s Pattern

When I was young, my Mother used to bring me along when she would go shopping for fabric. As a result, I spent a lot of time, killing time, flipping through pattern books. So when I spotted this dress, I was instantly transported to the pattern table at a Jo-Ann Fabrics.
