A Drink and Things: Vermouth and Soda July 15 2016, 0 Comments

It's another sad week here in the world. The horrible attack in Nice yesterday hit home for me, as I was in the south of France on Bastille Day last year. My heart and thoughts are with the city and the victims. 

A Drink

It is HOT here in the Northeast, with the kind of humidity that steams up the windows and creates a halo of wispy hair around my head. To help keep cool, I'm sharing a cocktail that's low alcohol and refreshing. Dare I say it's also hydrating? You can get the recipe below. 

And Things

I finally stopped buying cheap sunglasses from the pharmacy and sprung for a pair of Warby Parkers. The name of the color of the frames sold me instantly: Himalayan Salt. 

In other news in things pink, I'm declaring this the rosé of the season

Love Hemingway? Me, too. I'm dying to read this book.

Makes 1 drink

2 ounces sweet vermouth
1/2 ounce fresh lemon juice
