Happy Hour: An End of Summer Sip

Aug 21, 2020

A few of the farm stands around my house are selling the last of their summer peaches, so we’ve been looking for ways to enjoy them.  But since our kitchen is a construction zone, baking is out of the question.  Luckily, a commenter suggested repurposing these fruits of summer into a refreshing cocktail.

The Speckled Palate’s Summery Moscow Mule is the first cocktail on my list.  We’ll need to plug our blender in to make the fresh peach puree, but that’s a small price to pay for a delicious libation.  And since the cinnamon simple syrup requires a cooktop, I’ll sprinkle a little cinnamon into the glass with a bit of pre-made simple syrup.

Need copper mugs for your at-home mules?  I love the look of these Crate & Barrel mugs.

An easy t-shirt dress is always on my must-have list, and this LOFT dress in a soft mauve is fabulous.  It’s 50% off with code TREAT, as is everything at LOFT.  So if you need just one or two things to transition out of this hot summer, now is a good time to do a little window shopping.

LOFT makes a similar dress in a sleeveless style in the same mauve (also in petite).  There is also a plus-size option in a dark orange color.  I’d add this mother-of-pearl resin necklace for a bit more shine.

    I’ve been talking all of our half rotting fruit and mixing with with a little sugar and adding wine. Delicious and nothing goes to waste! No blender needed, just mash with a fork.

    I like to muddle the fruit in the glass before I pour bourbon/vodka/etc over the top on ice. I also mash aging fruit And mix in Greek yogurt and whatever type of milk I have and make smoothie pops (I say they’re for my 14 month old but I think I like them more than her!)

This week, I fell mindlessly into my phone more than I think I ever have. My screen time went from 3.5 hours per day to 5 hours per day. But the increased eye strain did lead to some good finds. Just going to leave this right here.  (I really need to work on “Didn’t make […]

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.
