Style + Happy Hour

Happy Hour: Orange Moscow Mule

(Work is a whirlwind.  So today is going to have to be my Friday. See you all Monday when things are calmed down.)

Kyle and I went on a health kick last week and bought out the entire produce section.  Predictably, things started to spoil before we got to them.  Suddenly it was either stir fry or frittata for dinner every night.  And as for all the fruit, we needed to find creative ways to use it.

This mocktail from Skinny Taste uses Cara Cara oranges, ginger beer and mint.  I swapped the mint for rosemary, because I like the flavor better, but it was still fantastic.  And if you want a cocktail instead, add a shot of Vodka.

Need the best ginger beer on the market?  I like Q Ginger Beer because it has more carbonation and doesn’t result in a flat cocktail.

When I make this again, I think I’ll add lime and Cara Cara oranges and skip the herbs.  They’re a nice addition, but I’d rather double up on the citrus.

Looking to jazz up your loungewear?  Wear a silk tank with your jersey or knit separates.

This sand-colored top from The Drop would pair nicely with Splendid’s oatmeal pant and coordinating cardigan.  It’s a relaxed look that still feels luxurious thanks to the silky tank.

Looking for other silky tanks to wear with your loungewear?  Try this black one from Free People, this navy one from Bare Necessities, and this gray one from Nordstrom.

Looking for a silk pajama set?  Lunya has a some amazing options.  For a less expensive option, try this set from Jonquil.

Plus-size?  Try this top from Forever21 or this top from Nordstrom.

    Oh man. I was today years old when I found out ginger beer is non-alcoholic. I always skipped moscow mules because I don’t like beer. Opens up the cocktail world for me!

      It tastes like a spicy, less sweet ginger ale.

    You could post once a week and I’d still be happy.
