Cocktails At The Park


I have the best recipe for you for a fabulous day.  I don't know when you will be able to use it, and you can totally break it down into the pieces that work for you, but you need to do this!  Pinky swear! While I was in Sea Island for Summit I was so excited to catch up with my dear friend Krystine who is just so special to me.  We have not seen each other since March (you know, life) and this time together was so good for both of us.  Early mornings + late nights chatting were truly the best. ❤



After the shopping event on Thursday we snuck out to our boutique motel for some down time and a cocktail or two. I changed into a fun caftan and we took our drinks out to the darling pool area.  As you can see we were completely alone (except for Angie) and we hung out, laughed, and sipped drinks.  That hour was so good for me and so fun to just sit and be with her.  There is no one that can make me laugh harder and most times at myself.

Isn't that just so good for your soul?


I don't have a unique recipe for the drinks I made, I used what I had and I am happy to share.  I had left over orange juice (50 calorie option) + left over mint + berries and I used Cathead Honeysuckle Vodka. I smooshed some of the berries + chopped mint in the bottom of the glass and then added the juice + a shot of vodka and topped it off with more berries and a mint sprig.  It was so good and simple and I really loved it and will totally do it again.   Add in a cute straw and a darling swizzle stick and you truly can not go wrong.


Can you even get over how darling The Park is, the grounds are just so charming.  I equate it to a cross between Melrose Place + Palm Beach + Palm Springs.  I loved all the pink touches, the classic of the black + white and all the adorable details.  As a single girl I would have wanted to move right in and live forever.



I brought my favorite cocktail extras from home to make sure when it was time to enjoy one with my roommates I would be able to make them something fun.  I added in two bottles of Cathead Vodka, both regular + honeysuckle, a bottle of Aperol, some Prosecco, my monogram napkins, fun straws, mint, limes and a collection of Acrylic Sticks.  Truth be told we only used a little bit of everything but it was still ready to go and looked so cute just in case. 😉



I could not resist this caftan after a long day of heels + a cute business outfit.  I just wanted to pull this on and relax for an hour and it was truly perfect.  You can shop it here, it comes both with a tie and without, mine is without.



We laugh so hard together and truly I can't even remember why I was laughing here, and it doesn't matter.  There is something about the way she loves me and supports me that just makes me so happy.  I am sure she told me some crazy thing she did or reminded me of the time I rode my bike into a hedge in Palm Beach to avoid a bird dive bombing me or the day she defined something she was describing to me with photos on her phone and I may have peed a little.  There is something about us together that just works so well.  I can't tell you how much I adore this girl I met six years ago via Instagram.  Can you even believe it, social media has brought such special people to my life.



Once again, who knows what I said ... but clearly it was funny! 🤣


Can we go back immediately?  I could use some sun + sea air right about now as it is about 34 degrees outside and we are on schedule for more rain tomorrow.  I will be soaking up all the sun I can today for sure.

I hope your Friday is truly ah-mazing!
