It was fairly loose inspiration to be sure, but the album name called to mind a pineapple margarita, so I went with it. Read on for the recipe, and note that the photographed version is served up, but I recommend it on the rocks!
Rim a glass with a combination of paprika, salt and sugar. Combine 1.5 oz reposado tequila, 1.5 oz pineapple juice, .5 oz lime juice and .5 oz tripel sec in the glass and stir. Fill with ice and enjoy!
Union Station is one of my favorite spots in Kansas City. The soaring ceilings, magnificent detail and stately air make me feel transported to a different time and place. A fancy workday lunch at Pierpont's proved to be a lovely respite from an otherwise average day. Speaking of feeling upscale, I finally invested in a good handbag. I've never been a bag person, and my thriftiness makes it hard for me to shell out the cost of quality. To a seasoned collector, this may seem like a modest bag, but it's a big deal for me!
While I try not to let fashion norms dictate my wardrobe choices, my desire to look stylish (and boost my short stature) has made me quite the heel-lover. That being said, can I just express how overjoyed I am that comfortable shoes are actually trendy right now? Thanks to my laziness of late and, you know, my fashion savvy, I've been reaching for the sneakers a lot lately!
I don't know what it is about Sweden, but so many of my favorite artists hail from there, including Mr. Jens Lekman. He's just such a charming storyteller. For the drink, I played off his notoriously tricky-to-pronounce name and used gin as my spirit. See the recipe below.
Muddle a few blackberries, peach wedges and mint sprigs with 1.5 oz of gin and .5 oz of peach liqueur in your cocktail shaker. Shake with ice. Because of all the fruit, it's a little clunky, but you'll want it to get chilled. Then pour over a fine strainer into your glass.
Apologies are in order for the radio silence over here! I haven't been feeling especially sartorially inspired lately. This happens to me from time to time, and it always passes eventually! In the meantime, I'll try to avoid being a complete bore.
