Summery Styles

One of this year’s trendiest cocktails just so happens to share one of this year’s trendiest décor materials: copper! Copper is both the designated drinking material for Moscow Mules, and the designated material for a modern home. Infuse it into your space by installing a copper sink in your kitchen! That way, your copper mugs will have a stylish counterpart to keep the kitchen cool even when they’re not in use.

WATERMELON MOSCOW MULE
Ingredients: Vodka, watermelon, lime, ginger beer, ginger syrup, mint.
Muddle the watermelon and strain to create 1oz. of juice. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice, watermelon juice, 1 shot of vodka, the juice of 1 lime and 1/2 shot of ginger syrup. Shake and strain into an ice-filled copper mug. Top with ginger beer and a mint sprig. Share this recipe!

For an interior bursting with flavor and style, stick to the scheme of our next refreshing beverage: Strawberry Rose Lemonade! To mimic this delicious combination in your own interior, sprinkle a few pops of color throughout your living room: plant a strawberry red sofa in the center, accent it with a couple of lemon-looking throw pillows, and stir a mint-colored vase of fragrant flowers for the full refreshing effect.

STRAWBERRY ROSE LEMONDADE
Ingredients: Meyer lemon juice, water, rose syrup, water.
To make rose syrup, stir 1/4 cup water with 1/2 cup white sugar over medium heat until the sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and stir in 1 cup smashed strawberries, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, and 1 teaspoon rosewater. Cool to room temperature and press through a sieve. Chill until ready to use.

To make lemonade, juice 3 meyer lemons. Place the used halves into a bowl and steep for 10 minutes in 2 cups of hot water. After, strain into a pitcher and add the lemon juice, 2 cups of cold water, and 1/3 cup of rose syrup. Stir and serve! Share this recipe!
