Hi hi hi! Happy Monday!
How was everyone’s weekend?? I know I was a little MIA on the blog, BUT, I was super busy taking a ton of pics for some posts going up this week, and I was running a ton of errands.
Target was having a huge clearance sale on their home goods and of course I dragged Arthur with me so we can snag up some stuff.
I got a really cute tray for this post, some new plates, cute coffee mugs, cocktail napkins, and beauty products.
Shopping trips lately have turned into “what can I use this for on the blog?”. I don’t even give a f*** if I don’t have any use for it, if it’s gonna look good in pics , I buy it! LOL.
The topic of this post is this delishhhhhhhh Summer cocktail.
One of the perks of dating a bartender is the fact that I’ll say what I want, and somehw Arthur manages to make it happen.
Insert: Strawberry Basil Lemonade.
This is literally the best cocktail for sipping poolside.
If i had a pool or any body of water near me, I would be making about 10 of these, no joke.
Strawberry Basil Lemonade
∇ Handful of strawberries
∇ 3-4 Basil Leaves
∇ 2 oz Vodka ( I love Tito’s, but you can use any brand)
∇ Soda Water
∇ Lemonade, (fresh or bottled)
∇ Muddle strawberries & basil in a shaker cup. Add in lemonade, vodka, some ice,
and shake shake shake. Pour into a glass, top with soda water, and drink up!
Easy as pie and beyond refreshing. You can even skip the alcohol and it tastes just as good.
Alright, off to re-watch the last season of Ray Donavon so we know what’s going on in the new season. Anyone else watch that show?? Comment below and let me know your thoughts on the fam.
