Happy Hour: The Perfect Bourbon Cocktail

Marriage in the time of COVID is just asking the other person what they want to watch on television until death do you part.  This week, we watched Neat, a documentary about Bourbon.  And in the documentary, Seth Brewer of Enoteca in Louisville shared a cocktail that sounded perfect for the blog.

The Winner’s Circle is a fantastic cocktail that includes 1 jigger of Bourbon, .75 oz of ginger syrup, .75oz of Jack Rudy’s Elderflower Tonic, and .75oz of Pamplemousse Rose Pink Grapefruit Liquor.

I love citrus flavors in a cocktail, and this one has a wonderful combination of ginger, Elderflower and grapefruit.  Served over ice, it sounds like the perfect thing for a summer evening.

This jersey dress from Halogen comes in a flattering and easy to wear swingy shape.  It also comes in seven fabulous colors and prints.  Regular and petite sizes available.

Prefer a midi-length over the maxi?   They also offer the dress in a midi-length.

If you want to dress this up a bit for a casual dinner date, add some big hoop earrings, a stack of bangles, and some wedge sandals.  To wear at home, a simple shoe, a white denim jacket, and a turquoise earring should get it done.

I hunted around for a similar dress in plus-size.  This Anthony Designs off-the-shoulder dress (also in misses) comes in a fun goldenrod color.

    The “midi” link actually sends you to the dress in Halogen Plus, and they have sizes 1x-4x in various colors! Good news for anyone who wanted the exact match in plus size 🙂
