Summer Solstice, the longest day and shortness night of year is just around the corner. Considered somewhat of a tipping point, it comes with mixed emotion for me – joy for the arrival of Summer, with a hint of sadness (and let’s be real – shock) that the year is nearly half over and that days are going to start getting shorter. I’m an early riser, 5-6am is my favorite time of the day and I LOVE waking up to light. But in a few short days that will slowly and sadly start to diminish.
Despite the return to winter like conditions in Calgary this week, I’m kicking off the weekend with a spring like cocktail. Earthy, herbal and gently sweetened, this Elderflower Grapefruit Cocktail may just be the ticket to help Mother Nature catch up with the calendar or at the very least help us all forget about the snow!
Happy Friday Loves! While I’m not crazy about Valentines Day per se, I do love love. And I especially love the gentle reminder V-Day offers to sprinkle love through out our days.
February 14th also offers the perfect excuse to enjoy pink cocktails, not that you ever need an excuse 😉 I know I say this a lot, but this may just be my new favorite cocktail, it is lightly sweetened, subtly floral, bubbly and called a Rose-ecco! The perfect drink for a celebration or a casual Friday night at home. Enjoy!
