Inspiration of Style:

Peplum

 

 I am totally into peplum right now! Its all over the pages of magazines and in dozens of stores. Peplum is a ruffle attached to the waistline of a skirt, dress, or even a jacket.  This style is so feminine but also bold. 

When I think peplum the first name that comes to mind is Victoria Beckham. She embodies ladylikeness yet she has such a bold fashion sense.

This is how you wear peplum and my favorite picks of this fashion-do !

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.
