This poolside inspired collection is just in time for summer and your beach vacation!

I have featured designs by Trina Turk before on GossipandGlam.com (here) so I am certainly excited to see more of this anticipated collection. This collection has a 60′s hint with a little sophisticated society twist and based on the photos below of this collection .. I already see my name written on that credit card receipt!!

Trina’s bold prints & colors are fun yet still timeless and I really can see myself wearing so many of these outfits to work this summer. I think this collection has enough pieces to really round out your wardrobe!

FYI all you Gilt Group members…they will be pre-selling items at full price before the collection hits stores on June 7.

Raspberry Mint Vodka Zinger Cocktail

 

As the weather here grows warmer I begin to crave fruity cold drinks while I write my blog on my comfy patio sofa. I might sit on Martha Stewart chairs but I certainly do not have a green thumb like her. This season I am trying my best to grow an herb garden. Right now that includes basil, rosemary, thyme, spearmint, parsley, dill and cilantro. With that said I usually only use parsley and basil in my regular cooking so I have now challenged myself to create some recipes with these other herbs.  I decided after attending a party last night that I really enjoy mint in my cocktails but I don’t always want a mojito and since I love fresh fruit in my cocktails I should combine the two!

I think raspberry & mint are a great combo & while the warmer weather is rolling in I still drink tea on the weekends so why not pair a lemon zinger tea with that raspberry & mint combo & a little vodka for a refreshing treat!

Raspberry Mint Vodka Zinger

 

Raspberry Mint Vodka Zinger Cocktail

  • 1/4 cup fresh raspberries
  • 2 large spearmint leaves
  • 1/4 cup vodka
  • 1/2 cup cold lemon zinger tea
  • 1 large glass
  • a large handful of ice cubes

Muddle the raspberries and spearmint leaves until you can smell the fresh mint in the large glass.Add ice cubes. Pour vodka & cooled tea into the glass & stir. CHEERS!!

It was as easy as that to get a refreshing drink with fresh flavors! Now if you like your drinks very strong go half vodka half tea… and don’t bother doing anything else but relaxing on that hammock.
