Maybe you have been at work all day? Perhaps the heat has gotten to ya’ and you need a cool down? Maybe, just maybe, you want something to simply celebrate the summer we have all needed now more than ever? Regardless, we have become inspired by some delish libations and want to share the recipes with you.
A yummy drink and a good item of fashion can go hand in hand. Looking through our INSTA feed, you will come across hot (or shall we say “haute”) new arrivals that are a perfect compliment to a summer toddy! Let’s get moving and shaking and discuss some great beverage options for what YOU can whip up at at home….and the little piece of e.Allen that inspired it!
THE MARGARITA (pairs just lovely with our Sydney Colorblock Maxi Dress for a colorful statement)
• 2 oz. silver tequila
• 1 oz. Cointreau
• 1 oz. lime juice
• coarse salt
Chill a cocktail glass, and then rub its rim with lime juice and dip it in coarse salt. Add tequila, Cointreau, lime juice, and ice together in a cocktail shaker. Shake and then strain into the glass over ice.
THE MOJITO (pair this summertime fave with some of our new Melania Clara baubles…..these gold pieces add a huge punch to your jewelry game!)
• 2 oz. white rum
• 1/2 oz. lime juice (squeezed fresh)
• 1 tsp. sugar
• 3 mint leaves with club soda
In a smallish glass, muddle lime juice with 1/2 to 1 tsp. sugar. Add the mint leaves, mushing them against the side of the glass. Fill glass 2/3 with cracked ice and pour in the rum. Pitch in the squeezed-out lime shell and top off with soda.
THE GIN & TONIC (simplicity at it’s best….so keep the look cool and clean with AGOLDE cut off denim shorts, a classic t-shirt, and a GOOD pair of our Electric sunnies)
• 3 oz. gin
• 3 lime wedges
• 4 oz. tonic water (the better the tonic, the better this beverage will be!)
Add the gin to a highball glass filled with ice. Squeeze in lime wedges to taste. Then add tonic water and stir to combine.
